Are Electric Scooters Legal in Miami?

Updated on December 1st, 2023

Riders must be 18 years or older and provide a valid driver’s license, state ID, or passport for age verification. Minors are prohibited from using e-scooters. Helmet usage, while not enforced by law, is highly advised for safety. Electric scooters should carry only one person at a time. The maximum allowable speed for e-scooters is 15 mph on roadways and bike lanes. In certain areas designated by the city, the speed limit is reduced to 6 mph. Riders should use bike paths and lanes when available and follow all local traffic regulations and guidelines.

  • Users must be 18 years of age or older and must have a valid driver’s license, state identification, or passport which must be scanned or provided to vendors as proof of age
  • Parents may not allow minor children to use scooters.
  • Users are not required to wear a helmet on e-scooters, but helmet use is strongly recommended.
  • Only one person at a time may ride an e-scooter.
  • E-scooters cannot exceed 15 miles per hour on streets and bike lanes and 7 miles per hour on sidewalks.

Users can ride on sidewalks or streets and are encouraged to ride in bike paths and bike lanes where available. E-scooters are only authorized in City Commission District 2(PDF, 871KB) , which includes the following neighborhoods: Coconut Grove, Brickell, Downtown Miami, Midtown, Edgewater, Morningside, and Wynwood (east side of N. Miami Avenue and east only).
scooter rental programs were suspended 12/2020 and new regulations are being discussed, so this may change
