Who Can Ride EV2000R Electric Scooter?

Here are some guidelines as to who can ride an Artisan EV2000 Electric Scooter on the road

The EV2000 scooter is restricted to 30mph, so the law treats it as a 30mph 50cc petrol moped / scooter. 

This list of eligible riders are:

  • A rider aged 16 and over with a provisional moped licence and a CBT (compulsory basic training certificate)
  • Anyone with a full car licence issued after Feb 1st 2001 and a CBT (compulsory basic training certificate)
  • Anyone with a full car licence issued before Feb 1st 2001
  • Anyone with any class of full motorcycle or moped driving licence

Other Requirements:

  • Riders must wear a helmet and the scooter needs to be registered, display a number plate and (once it’s three years old) an MOT.
  • Compulsory insurance
  • We'd also recommend cool looking protective clothing and gloves!

Passengers?

  • If you have passed a car or moped or motorbike driving test, you don't have to display L-Plates and can carry a passenger.

You do not need:

  • Road fund licence
  • Noisy, smelly expensive petrol!
