Constance asked: I recently bought a electric scooter because I got my license taken away after eye surgery I have 20/20 in my other eye but they still won’t give me a drivers license I live alone and I need a way to go back n forth to drs and shopping I cannot afford a taxi everyplace and I live within 10 miles where I do all my trips I was told its an electric scooter like the wheel chain or 3 wheel scooters coming out and they don’t require a drivers license but before I take my first ride I want to be sure so I don’t get tickets where is it legal to drive ? It has a range of only 35 miles n doesn’t go any faster than 25 miles per hour its all electric no gas no pedals can you inform me of all rules n things on this I am disabled n I need a way to get out go to drs n shopping.
Please see this post.
Motorized scooters are not permitted on the roads or sidewalks. A motor scooter like a Vespa is either a moped or a motorcycle and requires registration and a driver’s license.
