Electric Scooter Laws NSW
It is currently prohibited to ride an e-scooter in Sydney or anywhere in NSW on a road.
The NSW Road Rules, namely rule 240(2)(c) specifically prohibits a person from travelling in or on a wheeled recreational device, including an e-scooter, on a road at any time if the scooter is either wholly or partly assisted in being propelled by means other than human power.
It is therefore illegal to ride an electric scooter on a road if the scooter is powered by electricity.
A breach of this rule carries an on-the-spot fine (penalty notice) of $78. If a person who receives this fine decides to court elect, then the court has the discretion to impose a penalty of up to $2,200. If the court dismisses the matter, no further penalty will be imposed putting an end to the case (this occurs if the court returns a ‘not guilty’ verdict or imposes a section 10 penalty even after a person pleads guilty in court).
There are no demerit point penalties attached to this breach.
