Are Electric Scooters Legal in Arizona?

Updated on December 1st, 2023

In Arizona, electric scooters, also known as Electric Stand-Up Scooters, continue to be defined as motorized vehicles that are less than seventy-five pounds, have two to three wheels, contain handlebars and a board for standing, and are powered by an electric motor. While the maximum speed limit for these scooters is typically twenty miles per hour, specific local jurisdictions may have additional rules and regulations that govern the use of electric scooters. Riders are encouraged to familiarize themselves with local ordinances as they can vary by city or county. Licensing and registration requirements need to be verified with the current state and local laws as they might change over time.

In Arizona, electric scooters or "Electric Stand-Up Scooters" are defined as devices that:

  • Weighs less than Seventy-five pounds (75 lbs);
  • Has two (2) or three (3) wheels;
  • Has a handlebar and a floorboard that can be used to stand on while riding;
  • Is powered by an electric motor;
  • Has a maximum speed of twenty miles per hour 

A bill (linked below) is proposed that would grant users of electric scooters the same rights and restrictions of bicycle users in the state. This bill would also require scooters to have unique license plates.

Helmets are not required statewide but are currently required for any riders under the age of 18 in Tucson, Sierra Vista, Yuma county, and Pima counties.

Max Speed

20 mph

Minimum Age

There are no statewide minimum age requirements for electric scooter riders; however, rental companies and local ordinances may impose their own age restrictions.

Helmets Required? 

Statewide, helmets are not required except for riders under the age of 18 in certain jurisdictions; local regulations should be checked, as helmet laws may vary by city or county.
