Steve asked: I have an electric scooter (“PhatScooters.com“) – speed is less than 20mph. It has no pedals, but FL law says “human power and an electric helper motor”. This is a traditional scooter so no pedals but could be “scooted” by foot (if you really wanted to). The seat height is above 25 inches, but I don’t understand because most “bikes” in general have seats higher than 25 inches from the ground. Is my scooter considered an “electric bike”?
I believe your vehicle would be considered a motor scooter which must be registered and for which the operator must have a driver’s license in accordance with this DMV bulletin.
To be certain, I recommend asking the DMV or a local dealer for the vehicle.
