The following guidance has been issued by the Department of Transport:
Q: "I have a self-balancing scooter and I want to ride in on the public road, is it legal for road use?"
A: No. Vehicles must be approved via ECWVTA or MSVA in order to be licensed and registered. Self-balancing scooters do not currently meet the requirements of these schemes so are not legal for road use.
Q: "I have been riding a self-balancing scooter on the public footway (pavement) outside my house, have I committed an offence?"
A: Yes. It is an offence under section 72 of the Highway Act 1835 to ride or drive a vehicle on the pavement. It is only an offence under this Act in England and Wales. In Scotland it is an offence under section 129(5) of the Roads (Scotland) Act 1984.
Q:"Where can I ride a self-balancing scooter?"
A: You can only ride an unregistered self-balancing scooter on land which is private property and with the landowner's permission. The Department for Transport would advise that appropriate safety clothing should be worn at all times.
