This shift has led to the common question: what license do you need for an electric scooter in Spain? The answer to this question depends on the type of electric scooter and the local regulations.


In general, there are three classifications of electric scooters in Spain: less than 1,000W and top speed of less than 25 km/h, 1,000W-3,500W and top speed of 45-50 km/h, and finally, more than 3,500W and a top speed of more than 50 km/h. The licensing requirements are different for each classification.


For scooters less than 1,000W and a top speed of less than 25 km/h, no specific license is required. However, you must be at least 15 years old and possess a basic AM (ciclomotor) license if the scooter is above 250W, even if its top speed doesn't exceed 25 km/h.


For scooters with a power output between 1,000W and 3,500W and a top speed between 45 and 50 km/h, you will need an A1 (motorcycle) or B (car) license. To obtain an A1 license, you must be at least 16 years old and pass a theoretical and practical test. B license holders must be at least 18 years old.


Finally, for scooters with a power output of more than 3,500W and a top speed greater than 50 km/h, you will need either an A2 (limited-access motorcycle) or A (full-access motorcycle) license. To receive an A2 license, you must be at least 18 years old and pass both theoretical and practical tests, while an A license requires a minimum age of 20 years and two years of A2 license holding.


It's essential to be aware of any local regulations regarding electric scooters in your area. Some cities, such as Barcelona and Madrid, have specific regulations that may require additional permits or adherence to certain rules, such as not riding on sidewalks. It's always a good idea to check with local authorities to ensure you're in compliance with their requirements.


In summary, licensing for electric scooters in Spain depends on the power output and top speed of the scooter, in addition to local regulations. It's crucial to familiarize yourself with these requirements and abide by them to ensure a safe and enjoyable scooter experience in Spain.
