What license do I need to ride an NIU eletric scooter?

You passed your driving test before the 1st of February 2001

This means you can ride electric scooters restricted to 28mph (45kmh) on your car license and you DO NOT have to take a CBT course and you DO NOT have to display  L Plates (This means you can ride the UQI, UQI GT Pro, MQI + sport, NQI Sport, NQI Pro, NQI Cargo and MQI GT) You can ride electric mopeds that are restricted to 28mph for as long as your car license lasts.

However if you want to ride Electric scooters that are capable of speeds in excess of 28mph / 45kmph these are classed as L3e-A1 so you will need to sit a compulsory basic training course and display L Plates. You CBT certificate will last 2 years, and it will need renewed unless you pass your A2, A1 or A motorcycle test. (This means you can ride NQI GTS Pro, NQI GTS Sport and NQI GT Pro Cargo
