Florida E-bike laws

Here are five things that you should know about riding e-bikes in Florida.

Florida Ebike Laws


Number one

You do not need a license or a particular form of insurance to ride any bike.

Number two
Florida law actually defines an e-bike as a bicycle. This means you're supposed to follow the same rules as if you are riding a bicycle without a motor.


Number three
If you're under the age of 16 you can not ride an e-bike.

Number four
You're not required to wear a helmet but it's a smart move to wear a properly fitting helmet.

And number five
If you're injured in an e-bike accident you should follow these steps:

  • call the police to document the accident;

  • get the names and contact information of any witnesses to the accident;

  • if you're physically able, take photos of the scene and your injuries;

  • and most important, get checked out by a doctor to make sure that you don't have a serious injury under the surface.

If you have any questions about a Florida e-bike injury,  you can always give me a call. I am John Riddle, meeting you at the intersection of law and medicine.

Have a great day.
