Frequently asked questions about electric bicycles / Do I need a licence?

No. Virtually all our electric bicycles are street legal and can be ridden anywhere a regular bicycle can be ridden (riders must be aged 16 and over in Western Australia,) if not we will obviously advise you.

The department of transport advises that currently 200w and 250w European standard (EN15194:2009) bicycles are street legal. The Australian Design Rules were changed in 2012 to align with the European standard (EN15194:2009) for electric bicycles, which have a 250 watt power output.
