Are Electric Scooters Legal in Nebraska?

Updated on December 1st, 2023

In Nebraska, there is still no comprehensive statewide legislation specifically governing electric scooters. Local regulations are the predominant method of managing the presence and safe operation of electric scooters. These regulations can vary between cities or even within certain areas of a city, addressing factors such as speed limits, parking, right of way, and operation on sidewalks or street lanes. While a license is not required to operate an electric scooter in Nebraska, users are encouraged to check local ordinances for any specific rules, such as helmet requirements or restrictions based on age.

Nebraska does not have searchable statewide legislation for electric scooter, but several pilot programs have introduced scooters into Nebraska cities. A license is not required to operate. There are no current helmet or age restrictions at the state level. Electric bicycles with less than 750 watt motors are not considered motor vehicles.

Regulations regarding the safe operation of electric scooters and the presence of electric scooters on public property are mostly governed by local authorities. 

Max Speed

15 mph in general for pilot programs, but local regulations may vary.

Minimum Age

Not specified at the state level; local municipalities may impose age limits.

Helmets Required? 

Varies by locality. Some cities may require helmets for certain age groups or all users.
