When will e-scooters become legal on roads and pavements?

E-scooter rental trials have been underway in a number of areas across the UK since the summer of 2020. Local councils have been working with rental providers to test the viability of e-scooters as a safe and effective mode of transport. 

The trial period was due to end on the 20th November 2023 but has been extended until the 31st May 2024, so that the most comprehensive evidence possible can be gathered. The government is then likely to launch another consultation phase before any official changes to the law are proposed.
