Are Electric Scooters Legal in Maine?

Updated on December 1st, 2023

Maine classifies a motor scooter as a vehicle featuring 2 or 3 wheels under 10 inches in diameter. It can have a gasoline-powered motor of less than 25 CCs or an electric motor not exceeding 750 watts. Riders must have any class of driver’s license, permit, or endorsement to operate an electric scooter, which does not need to be registered. Local authorities are in charge of establishing regulations regarding electric scooter use and their operation on public properties.
