Popular Electric Scooters Require Licenses in Arkansas

No child under 10 years of age can possess a motorized bicycle operator certificate

Published: 15-Jan-2004

Arkansas law requires operators of motorized scooters have a driver's license or operator's certificate to ride on the streets, roads and highways of the state.

According to Eighth Judicial District North Prosecuting Attorney Randy Wright, the scooters are classified as "motorized bicycles" under Arkansas law.

"Arkansas Code 27-20-101 defines a motorized bicycle as a bicycle with an automatic transmission and a motor with displacement of 50 cubic centimeters or less," Wright said. "In my opinion these scooters fit that definition."
