Electric Scooter Regs
Need an electric scooter and fancied the Kral KR-25 Ava 5000L. I was aware of laws being passed in 2014 which govern whether you need a licence, licence plate, and insurance etc. This scooter has a supposed speed of 55 kph. Can anyone tell me of the above requirements OR is there a better scooter option that you use or know of. Interestingly, when the shop owner realised I wasn't as naive as I looked, and when I questioned the need for a number plate etc his response was
" No problem as no traffic police enforcing this. Also if you need quick number plate go to notary - 150 TL and it will be arranged.
I have lived in the UK too long-term I am maybe too used to the law !

Thanks for this. Don't have an RP, don't want one and I have a pretty steep gradient of 1mile to my apartment from the town. So definitely need more than 250w. Thanks for the info - seems like I will have to settle for the car lol.

I have a Arora 249W pedal assisted scooter. Took the pedals off as they keep getting in the way but looks much like any other moped.
Been 2 up plus beach bag and small dog in a basket on the back and will do in excess of 50Km distance at 49kph with hills no problem, all 3 of us.
No licence/sigorta/tax/residency issues. Best purchase I've made out here.

My friend went to the police station and was told if your electric bike goes over 25 klm .you will need a licence and number plate. I have noticed in alanya a lot of the electric bikes have gone off the roads .
