Electric Scooter Trials

8th October 2020

The Department for Transport is running these trials to give the Government an opportunity to look into the benefits and costs of electric scooters; they could, for example, ease the burden on the transport network and help to facilitate social distancing. 

However, the Government will need to understand the full impact of electric scooters before any decision is made on whether they should be legalised.

Several councils have raised concerns around the safety of e-scooters following reports of misuse, such as use in pedestrianised areas and the Department for Transport is using this feedback to help other trials avoid these issues and ensure that robust launch plans are put in place for future trials.
