Today new rules governing electric scooter use come into force in Spain.

From today it will be mandatory for electric scooter owners to carry an aluminium ID plate for VMPs (Personal Mobility Vehicles) as well as information of general characteristics and a circulation licence. Scooter drivers must also have third party civil liability insurance and wear a helmet.

It is prohibited for VMPs to travel on sidewalks, pedestrian areas, crossings, highways, interurban roads, or tunnels in urban areas. Maximum alcohol levels are the same as for other vehicles.
