Are Electric Scooters Legal in Arkansas?

Updated on December 1st, 2023

In Arkansas, electric scooters are classified as devices that have a weight under 100 lbs, two or three wheels, a handlebar, a floorboard for standing while riding, and are propelled by an electric motor. These scooters should not exceed speeds of 20 mph. The minimum age requirement for operating an electric scooter is 16 years old. Local authorities have the jurisdiction to implement additional regulations regarding the safe operation of electric scooters and their use on public property. The state does not mandate wearing helmets for electric scooter riders, but local ordinances may require helmet use.
