Are eScooters Legal In Ireland – What is the Law Currently?

E-scooters have been rapidly growing in popularity in recent years thanks to the speed and convenience they provide not only for recreational use, but an increasing number of commuters have also taken to them.

Currently legislation for electric scooters is being finalised for road use in Ireland. The Irish cabinet approved legislation in the middle of October and it is expected that legislation will now be concluded before Christmas 2021 and then e-scooters will then be fully legal on Irish roads.

So, if you’re thinking of buying an e-scooter currently, there is no better time to be ready for the incoming legislation.
