Electric scooters still have quite small engines, and so they have a low top speed. ... The M488 scooter is ideal if you want something for getting around on private land, but remember they're not legal to use on the road. While this might put you off, it does mean you don't need any kind of driving licence to ride them.
The use of private e-scooters on roads, pavements and in parks remains illegal, while rented scooters can only be used on the road, and are banned from parks and pavements.
