Do you need insurance for an electric scooter
Insurance for e scooter UK
Currently, you can buy one but you can't ride it on a UK public road, cycle lane or pavement. Anyone who does is committing an offence.
The only place an e-scooter can be used is on private land, with the permission of the landowner.
At the moment, they are classified as Personal Light Electric Vehicles (PLEVs), so they're treated as motor vehicles and are subject to all the same legal requirements - MOT, tax, licensing and specific construction.
So, because they don't always have visible rear red lights, number plates or signalling ability, they can't be used legally on the roads.
The law covering e-bikes - which are battery-assisted pedal cycles - doesn't currently cover e-scooters, but the government wants to regulate them in a similar way in future.
Normal scooters, those without motors, are not allowed on pavements or cycle paths but they can be used on roads.
UK government is running trial on some of the towns, more information can be found on following link :
