Are Electric Scooters Legal in Alabama?

Updated on December 1st, 2023

In Alabama, electric scooters are categorized under the motor-driven cycle classification. Operators are now required to have at least a Class 'M' driver license as per the Alabama Law Enforcement Agency (ALEA). The minimum age to apply for the Class 'M' driver license is 16 years old, with applicants under 18 needing parental consent. Helmet use is mandated for all riders, regardless of age. While electric scooters are street legal throughout Alabama, local municipalities may impose additional restrictions or ordinances concerning their use.

  • Alabama sorts motorized vehicles like scooters, mopeds, and motorized bicycles into a single category: motor-driven cycles.

  • Operators have at least a "B" restricted motorcycle license with the Alabama Law Enforcement Agency (ALEA). Operators must be at least 14 years old to apply for "B" restricted Motorcycle license. Helmets are required for all riders.

  • Scooters are considered street legal statewide but restrictions and safety regulations can be further defined by local authorities.
