Under Florida law, a motorized scooter is defined as a vehicle that is (1) without a seat or saddle for the use of the rider, (2) designed to travel on three wheels or less, and (3) operates at a maximum speed of 30 MPH on level ground. If your vehicle exceeds these specifications, it is classified as a motorcycle.
Florida requires all operators of scooters to have a valid Class E driver’s license and be at least 16 years of age. A motorized scooter cannot be driven on a sidewalk and must be driven on the road at all times. This means individuals on scooters have the same rights to the road and are subject to the same traffic laws and regulations as other vehicles. There are also no insurance requirements in Florida for owning and/or operating a motorized scooter.
Scooter accident cases can be very complex and have many nuances. If you or someone you know has been involved in a scooter accident in South Florida, call us at (786) 899-3500. We may be able to assist you. All consultations are free.
