I come from Utah, which is one of the most backward states in the United States. I wanted to get an electric scooter to get around town for short trips. This would save my family from using any gasoline, accept when we needed to leave town. The state of Utah has made it so that an electric scooter that only goes 20 miles per hour, is classified as a motorcycle. There fore you have to register this scooter and you have to have a motor cycle license to operate it. I won't be getting one because of this law. They don't care about energy consumption.

I believe here in CT that you do not need a motorcycle lisence to operate a scooter. I know you must have a drivers lisence, but that is about it. I see so many people on these scooters and I'm sure more and more will opting for the scooters as the weather warms up. Maybe Utah should rethink this law. I know that is easier said than done, though.

I live in South Florida and there are scooters on the road here but I am not sure what kind of license you have to have. I do know they have to be registered. I guess it depends on what it worth to you. I have a small child so a scooter wouldn't work for me so we walk during the the week and try to use the vehicles only on weekends when we combine trips.
