Electric Cycles and UK Law


Firstly……..Present owners of electric bikes need not worry – the new regulations for Electrically Assisted Pedal Cycles which come into force on 1st January 2016 won’t be retrospective and so what are known as ‘Grandfather rights’ apply. This means that if you already have a bike with a ‘Twist & Go’ throttle or purchase one before 1st January 2016, there will be no issue. It only applies to bikes purchased after this date.

The new regulations complete the harmonisation with the EU laws. These are as follows:
  • The rider must be aged 14 or over
  • The bike must have pedals that can be used to propel it
  • The motor cannot have a maximum continuous rated power of more than 250 watts
  • Maximum assisted speed of 25 km/h (approx. 15.5 mph)
  • Cannot be fitted with a full speed throttle that can work independently (that is without the pedals rotating in a forward direction). Easy start / walk assist throttles are allowed up to 6 km/h
  • All bikes will conform to EN15194
Electric Cycles and UK Law Electric cycles are exempt from road tax, road licence, insurance and MOT costs and are road legal in the UK.
Although not yet a legal requirement, the use of a cycle helmet is recommended.
