FAQ

Electric Scooters

Yes, electric scooters are legal to buy, but it is illegal to ride a privately bought electric scooter on a public highway. Electric scooters are only legal to ride on private land with the owner’s consent, unless they are specifically part of a council run rental scheme.

Not all electric scooters can be ridden in the rain. This depends on their 'IP rating' e.g. IP65, where the second digit refers to water resistance.

We recommend only riding an e-scooter with a rating of 5 or higher, and picking a model that has a warranty which covers water resistance to the IP rating standard.

This shows the manufacturer’s confidence in the quality of its products and ensures that you’ll be covered if something goes wrong.

As privately-owned e-scooters are illegal to ride on public highways in the UK at the moment, it is not possible to get insurance on them for use outside of your home or on private land.

For use at home they can be covered under your standard home insurance policy. If you are unsure if yours is covered, please check with your insurance provider.

Are you looking for a more environmentally friendly way to get to work without getting worn out or breaking a sweat? An electric bicycle can make it easier to commute to work do you don’t arrive exhausted or in need of a shower. With two options – pedal-assist and throttle-only – you can control exactly how hard you want to work as you ride. And, on the way home, if you’re looking for more of a workout, simply turn off the motor and pedal completely on your own. You’ll no longer be wondering ‘Is an electric bike for me?

Many electric bike users find that they actually end up getting in better shape than they do with traditional bicycles. Since an electric bike reduces many of the bike-related concerns that people have, their riders end up going outdoors and cycling more often. Find out more here on one person’s experience. If for any reason a regular bicycle doesn’t work for you due to hills, distance, health reasons, knee problems, aging, or even the inconvenience of having to shower and change at work. An electric bike removes all the excuses, making it easy to get out and do something good for yourself and for the environment. ‘Is an electric bike for me?’ is the first question to ask before getting in shape!
