What are the rules on e-scooters?

E-scooters are legal to buy in the UK but privately bought ones are not allowed on public roads.

Only scooters rented through a government-approved scheme can be used on the roads and in cycle lanes.

To rent one, you will need a category AM, A or B full or provisional drivers licence.

It is not legal to ride them on the pavement.

If you own your scooter, it must be insured but if you rent it, the provider covers this.
