Australia e-Scooter Laws and Regulations

The laws and regulations for riding e-scooters differ across the States of Australia. Public use isn’t permitted in all states/territories and licensing/registration requirements may apply. It is the Customer’s complete responsibility to review these laws before purchasing and using e-scooters. Safety requirements (including helmets and protective hear) should always be worn when riding e-scooters.
