What Are Florida's Electric Bike Laws?

Electric bikes or e-bikes are designed to function as traditional bikes, don’t compromise the rider’s safety, and can be easily used by bicyclists who can’t ride traditional bikes due to a disability, age, or limited physical fitness. Many states have antiquated laws for regulating e-bikes, and these laws also apply to combustion engine vehicles like scooters and mopeds. 

Fortunately for Floridians, a bill was passed in July 2020 that provided riders of e-bikes the same rights and duties as traditional bicyclists. Here’s what you should know about the electric bike laws in Florida.
