Who Can Ride?

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

The EV2000 scooter is restricted to 30mph, so the law treats it as a 30mph 50cc petrol moped / scooter. The Artisan EV0 motorcycle is categorised as A1, so the law treats it the same as a 125cc petrol motorcycle.

This list of eligible riders are:

EV2000R Requirements:
