An electric scooter is a personal electric mobility device (PEMD) that weighs less than 45 kg (100 lbs), and uses an electric scooter motor. A rider must press the throttle to start which sends a signal to the battery to release power to the motor. The motor then produces energy to move the e-scooter forward.
Electric scooters can also run at a speed of 25 kph in accordance with Australian laws. However, it is best to check government updates to see if electric scooters are legal to be driven in your state. Laws per state varies.
