Electric Scooter Australian Legal Requirements

We’re lucky to live in a country where the law is the law, and it’s upheld effectively to guarantee our safety. But when certain states in Australia can’t agree on laws, it can become a little confusing and frustrating.

Such is the case with the legal requirements for electric scooters – a relatively new addition to our roads. What exactly are the laws around electric scooters, depending on where you live in Australia?

Here, we’ll tackle the general requirements of electric scooters in Australia and explain why you should only purchase one that meets the guidelines.

General legal requirements of electric scooters in Australia

Different states have different laws on electric scooters in Australia. Just like other new technologies in Australia, it can take a while for all states to create a uniform policy around them. Gel blasters are another example – each state has its own policies regarding them.

However, every state in Australia can agree on these factors listed below, which deem an electric scooter fit for use or not. These include scooters that:

  • Are designed for a single-person use
  • Measure 1250mm in length, 700 mm in width, 1350 mm in height or 700 mm in height, 1250mm in width, and 1350mm in height.
  • Weigh under 60kg when not carrying a person
  • Have no sharp or protruding parts
  • Are installed with a braking system
  • Are fitted with one or more wheels
  • Are powered by an electric motor

Always check the rules in your state

Any user of Plusrite electric scooters must ensure that that they check and abide by their local by-laws and use responsibly. To avoid disappointment, study the laws in your state surrounding electric scooters and ensure you’re taking the correct measures to ride safely and legally.

Always wear a helmet when riding

Like with any other self-propelled vehicle, like skateboards and bikes, you must always wear a helmet when riding an electric scooter in Australia. Helmets have proven to be life-saving in the event of an emergency. 60% of bicycle deaths, for example, could have been prevented if the user was wearing a helmet.

I purchased an EV charger from these guys last week. The whole experience has been great! Ross, who I think is the owner/manager was super helpful with product knowledge and tips before and after buying the unit. Highly recommended.

We visited their office after viewing video of Plusrite car charger. Ross explained how the charger works and showed us the one fitted at his office that he uses for his E car. We needed it for our Renault E tech. Ross was able to recommend an electrician to install and it works beautifully. Ross is happy to spend time with you and his experience with E cars means he has the answers to the questions you will have. Great product, fair price and really good service.

Bought the Plusrite Single Phase charger. Fast shipping. Relatively easy installation ( but no install manual). Z Box app. Works well. Response to owner- Yes 3 books . 2 for DLB and 1 for Z-Box. Factory must have missed the installation guide but no issue as easy to work out install. Thanks

Amazing service. After ordering from Michael I expected the lights to take a week to get to Brisbane (like many items I buy from interstate suppliers), but no, these turned up the next business day. Well done.

Purchased the AU08-DL30W/W/S downlights with romote in October 2020 but only installed 3 weeks ago. They are great lights & the remote & setup are very easy to use. I Installed the new downlights as the existing downlights had power sockets in the ceiling space which meant that I could unplug my old ones & simply plug in the new ones. That was easy apart from having to enlarge the plaster hole size & make good. The amount of overall light & spread is great & the dimming works really well. I intend to buy more of these soon

We are VERY happy with our new LED solar flood lights. So much so, we ordered a heap more for us and family. It was a simple phone call and the lights were on their way- soooooo excited. Thanks Plurite.
