Age Restrictions / Requirements:

For all of our electric scooter tours, the minimum age requirement is 18 years old.

In addition, you must be in possession of one of the following:

  • A valid provisional or full UK driving licence.
  • A valid full licence from an EU or European Economic Area (EEA) country.
  • A valid full licence from another country that entitles you to drive a small vehicle in the U.K.

If you are unsure whether your driving license is applicable, then check this government link: “Gov.uk – E-Scooter Trials: Guidance for Users.”

When you first access a Dott e-scooter you will be asked to verify your identity, therefore you must bring your driving license along on the day of your tour. You will need to scan your license via the Dott app, therefore you must bring the plastic photo-ID version of your license, not the paper counterpart.

If you do not bring your license, we cannot guarantee you will be able to access an e-scooter.

Don’t have a license? Or has your license recently expired? We also offer a collection of excellent E-Bike Tours. All of our e-bike tours do not require a driving license so provide the perfect alternative!
