What's the law regarding the use of e-scooters and hoverboards?

Electric scooters and hoverboards are covered by legislation which prevents them from being ridden on the pavement or road.

Given how electric scooters and hoverboards are designed - being propelled with a motor rather than by human force, they fall within the legal definition of a ‘motor vehicle’. Therefore, the laws that apply to motor vehicles also apply to e-scooters and hoverboards.

It is, however, legal to use e-scooters and hoverboards on private land with the permission of the land owner. If a customer wishes to return a hoverboard or e-scooter, they can do so in accordance with our Returns Policy.
