Are Electric Scooters Legal in Indiana?

Updated on December 1st, 2023

In Indiana, electric scooters, colloquially recognized as 'electric foot scooters,' are categorized and regulated with certain criteria. The electric scooters must be equipped with handlebars and a floorboard for standing during operation, can weigh up to 100 pounds, be designed with three or fewer wheels, and have a maximum speed not exceeding a specified limit on flat terrain. When operating an electric scooter, riders enjoy the same rights and duties as cyclists, meaning they can use both streets and bike paths. Operators of electric scooters are not required to possess a license or vehicle insurance, as these scooters are not designated as motor vehicles under state law. Minors under the age of 18 are mandated to wear helmets while riding. Local authorities are responsible for imposing additional regulations related to the safe operation of electric scooters as well as their allowed presence on public property.

In Indiana, "electric foot scooter" are defined as vehicles that:

  • Has handlebars and a floorboard to stand on while riding
  • Weighs 100 pounds or less
  • Has three or fewer wheels
  • Maximum propulsion of 20 mph or less on flat ground

Electric scooters have all the same rights and responsibilities as a bicycle. You can ride them in the street and on bike paths, and don't need insurance or a license. They are not legally considered motor vehicles. Helmets are required for riders under 18 years old.

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