New e-bike legislation to come into effect on Wednesday
N

Earlier this morning the Minister for Infrastructure Nicola Mallon, proposed a motion that the ‘Electrically Assisted Pedal Cycles (Construction and Use) Regulations (Northern Ireland) 2020 be affirmed’.

That motion went unobjected by the Assembly, and will bring in new electric bike legislation to allow their use on public roads without the need for registration or licensing.

‘Great result. Unanimous support across all parties for new e-bike legislation. From tomorrow e-bikes will be treated just like a normal bike. No more barriers of having to register & license it beforehand. Get peddling.’

This updates the current legislation in line with the rest of the UK, and comes into effect as soon as Wednesday May 13th.
