Electric scooters are not legal in the UK, however from 4 July 2020, the Department of Transport has allowed people to use rental e-scooters as part of a strictly monitored ‘geofenced’ trial area, which means they will stop if the riders try to access an area off limits.

The link below will take you to the Gloucestershire County Council website for more information on this this brand-new mode of low emission transport which will be hitting the streets in October, offering efficient, clean and inexpensive travel that can also help ease the burden on transport networks and allow for social distancing.
