Question for Department for Transport

UIN HL3307, tabled on 9 November 2022

To ask His Majesty's Government whether the draft Road Vehicles and Non-Road Mobile Machinery (Type-Approval) (Amendment and Transitional Provisions) (EU Exit) Regulations 2022 apply to any type of (1) electric bike, or (2) electric scooter; and if so, in which part.

Parts 2 (regulation 5), 3 (regulation 8) and 4 (regulation 74) of the draft Statutory Instrument apply to certain electric bikes and electric scooters (mopeds), being those which are currently in scope of compulsory type approval for L-category vehicles (powered two and three wheelers).

This draft SI does not increase the scope of the existing categorisations or the existing requirement for type approval for certain electric two-wheeled vehicles.
