Welcome to the electric scooter club!
Before you get those electric wheels rolling, there are a few things to cover!
We encourage you to watch the video below to understand what you need to know when it comes to your new electric scooter.
SAFETY AND SECURITY
Always ensure you are riding with your helmet on, have your phone holder securely attached to your scooter and your scooter lock handy. Safety is always the most important when riding!
BE AWARE OF YOUR SURROUNDINGS
Footpaths and shared paths can be crowd, so always be aware of your surroundings, to ensure the safety of yourself and others.
Electric scooters can take off quicker than you think! Start slow, at a comfortable pace to learn at and build speed in time.
LOOK AFTER YOUR SCOOTER
Don’t forget to clean your electric scooter, check the tyres and look after your battery.

Just like cars, your electric scooter needs to be maintained and serviced. A good rule of thumb is if you ride on a regular basis, you should service your electric scooter every 6 months.
