1. What Age Can A Child Ride An Electric Scooter?

For safety reasons, the recommended rider age for children's electric scooters is 8 years old and above.

Your child’s first scooter should be a kick scooter, not an electric scooter.

2. Should I Get My Kid An Electric Scooter?

It depends on your kids age. For kids under 8, you should get a kick scooter for kids. For kids 8-16, you can get a kids electric scooter. For kids above 16, an electric scooter for adults is good.

3. Is An Electric Scooter Safe For A 5 Year Old?

No. The maximum speed of children's electric scooters is 6 mph-10mph. But for a 5-year-old child, this speed is still a bit fast. Unless the maximum speed is lower, it is not safe. 

4. Can A 6, 7 Year Old Ride An Electric Scooter?

Yes, electric scooter for kids is designed for children aged 6-12. But we should consider the actual height of the child. A rule of thumb is that the height of the handlebars should be higher than the child's waist, but also lower than the child's armpits. 

If you are not sure what size electric scooter for kids to buy, you can buy a children's electric scooter with adjustable handle height.

5. Can A 8, 9, 10, 11, 12 Year Old Ride An Electric Scooter?

Yes. The recommended age for riding an electric scooter is now 8+ years old.

The maximum speed of most children's electric scooters is between 6 mph and 15 mph. Most kids between 8-12 years old will be fine at 10 mph. It will not be too fast or too low.

You can get a kids electric scooter with max speed below 10mph.

6. Can A 13, 14, 15 Year Old Ride An Electric Scooter?

Yes. Due to height reasons, kids at 13, 14, 15 years old are no longer suitable for children's electric scooters. You should buy an electric scooter for teens.

7. Can A 16, 17 Year Old Get An Electric Scooter?

It depends on local laws.

If the law stipulates that 16-year-olds can ride an adult electric scooter, then they can buy an adult electric scooter.

If the law requires 18-year-olds to ride adult electric scooters, then they can only use youth electric scooters until they are 18 years old.

8. Safety Suggestion

Both adults and children should wear a helmet when riding an electric scooter.
