Re: Electric Scooter Regs

[QUOTE=suzyq;1155844]Any moped/scooter with an output of under 250W & is capped with a maximum speed of 25kph or less does not need registering,insurance etc. & no Residence Permit or driving licence is required . #
The Official Notice……” With the amendment of Article 3 titled Definitions of Road Traffic Law No. 2918, (2918 sayılı karayolları Trafik Kanunu’nun Tanımlar başlıklı 3. Maddesi’nde) electric bikes with power over 250W were accepted as motor bikes. Accordingly, electric bikes larger than 250W must be registered.,have Trafic Sigorta [3rd party insurance] . Therefore to register & insure it a Residence Permit will be required.
.
DRIVING LICENCE CLASSES REQUIRED..
Up to 250 Watts…….no licence or registration required.
250 Watts -to- 4K.Watts …Class ‘M Licence.[Car]
4 K.Watts+ …Class A Licence.[M/cycle]
Trikes which are popular with many are all around 800W output & top speed of 30kmph +,meaning they must be registered..

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.
