Are Electric Scooters Legal in Georgia?

Updated on December 1st, 2023

Electric scooters in Georgia are subject to similar regulations as bicycles. Operators must be at least 16 years old to ride without supervision. Unsupervised riders must possess a valid driver's license, instructional permit, or limited permit. All electric scooter operators are expected to adhere to standard traffic laws applicable to motor vehicles and follow any additional local ordinances. While helmets are strongly recommended for all riders, only those under 16 years of age are required by state law to wear a helmet. Local jurisdictions may establish further regulations on the usage of electric scooters, including restrictions on where they may be operated and whether they can be used on sidewalks.

In Georgie, electric scooters are classified as mopeds.

Rules to operate mopeds on Georgia roads and highways:

  • Must be 15 years of age and have in their possession an unexpired driver's license, instructional permit or limited permit.
  • Must wear protective headgear (helmet).
  • No tag is required.
  • Every person operating a moped upon a roadway must obey the same traffic laws governing drivers of motor vehicles.
  • May not use limited access highways or other roadways where the minimum speed limit is above 35 mph.

All remaining regulations regarding the safe operation of electric scooters and the presence of electric scooters on public property are governed by local authorities.
