Electric Personal Vehicle (EPV) consultation

Date published:
05 January 2010
Closing date:
30 March 2010

Summary

There are many electric personal vehicles (EPVs). Those which do not comply with road vehicle law requirements may only be used, at present, on private land (with landowner permission). They may not lawfully be used on our roads, on cycle tracks or on pedestrian footways and footpaths.

This consultation seeks your views on whether DfT should explore changing the law to allow such vehicles to use public roads and cycle tracks. This consultation does not propose permitting such vehicles to use dedicated pedestrian areas such as footways and footpaths.
