Are Electric Scooters Legal in Montana?

Updated on December 1st, 2023

In Montana, electric scooters continue to be categorized as motorized non-standard vehicles, with regulations often dictated at the city level. Municipalities may set their own rules, some of which have tailored regulations to facilitate electric scooters on bike paths, trails, and within certain road guidelines. Riders should stay informed of the specific ordinances in the cities they intend to use electric scooters, as these can differ vastly from one area to another. The state does not typically allow electric scooters to be used on highways or interstate roads due to their design as low-speed electric vehicles.

In Montana, electric scooters fall under motorized non-standard vehicles and are not for use in roadways. Every city can override these laws for their own needs. Several cities across Montana have made efforts to regulate and encourage the safe use of electric scooters.

Max Speed

Varies by city ordinance, but generally limited to 15-20 mph where electric scooters are allowed.

Minimum Age

Typically, riders must be at least 16 years old to operate an electric scooter, but this can vary by municipality. Some areas may allow younger riders when accompanied by an adult or with certain restrictions.

Helmets Required? 

Helmets are often recommended for safety, but their use may not be legally mandated for adults over 18. Some cities may require minors to wear helmets while operating an electric scooter.
