Is it road legal?

‘Mobility devices’ are legal to ride on the road and footpath in NZ

The specs of Motoblitz electric scooters fit the appropriate design for a person needing help with mobility. Therefore, the requirements set by the NZ transport agency of where and how mobility devices can be used must be followed.

What are mobility devices?

Under traffic law, mobility devices are vehicles:

  • designed and constructed for people needing help with mobility because of physical or neurological impairment

  • powered solely by a motor of up to 1500 watts.

Under existing law, Segways are not mobility devices.

Using your mobility device

You don’t need a driver license to operate a mobility device and they’re not required to have a warrant of fitness or registration. But there are requirements for where and how you can use them:

  • on the road, you must keep as close as possible to the edge of the roadway
  • on the footpath:
    • you must ride carefully and be considerate of others 
    • you must not ride at speeds that put other footpath users at risk.
