E-Scooter - from when are you allowed to drive with the vehicle?

The regulation for small electric vehicles specifies under which conditions you are allowed to participate in road traffic with your e-scooter. In addition to a speed limit, there is also a minimum age that you must have.

From when is it allowed to drive an e-scooter?

E-scooters came late to Germany. But before you are allowed to participate in road traffic with it, it is necessary that an ordinance is adopted that regulates this ride.
  1. The Elektrokleinstfahrzeuge-Verordnung (eKFV) came into force on 15.06.2019.
  2. The ordinance applies to all vehicles that have an electric drive motor according to §1 paragraph 2 StVG.
  3. In the case of an e-scooter, it is only electric pedal scooters, but not an electric motor scooter. Since the latter is far more powerful and other provisions apply to this, they must not be confused.
  4. E-scooters must have a general operating permit. Pay attention to this already when buying the vehicle. Alternatively, you must apply for an individual operating permit.
  5. Furthermore, you may lead an e-scooter only from an age of 14 years. Da der Scooter nur maximal 20 km/h fahren darf, herrscht keine Helmpflicht, auch eine Fahrerlaubnis ist nicht nötig.
  6. Mittlerweile sind auch Verleih-Anbieter weit verbreitet, bei denen Sie einen E-Scooter anmieten können.
