Do I need a license to ride an ebike?


Nope, treat your e-bike as you would a normal bicycle. Despite being motor powered, electric bikes are classed as a bicycle in most regions. As such, you do not need a license, tax or insurance to ride on the street. There is a caveat to this however, if your e-bike has the capability to exceed the electric bike speed limit set by your state you will need a license and possibly tax and insurance. It is best to check with your local regulations before ordering an electric bike to ensure it complies.
