How Are E-Bikes Classified in California
While e-bike riders typically must follow the same laws as cyclists, it is essential to understand the laws surrounding these vehicles. Despite being motorized, e-bike riders are not required to carry a license and insurance. California has three different classifications of e-bikes, each with their own laws and regulations, including the following:
A Class One e-bike is a low-speed pedal-assisted electric bicycle that is only motorized when the rider is pedaling up to 20 miles per hour. Class one e-bikes are allowed on any paved surface that a regular bike is allowed to operate.
A Class two e-bike is a low-speed throttle-assisted electric bicycle that can propel the bike with or without pedal assist up to 20 miles per hour. Like class one e-bikes, they are permitted to operate on any surface as a standard bike.
A Class three e-bike is a low-speed pedal-assisted electric bicycle that has a speedometer and a motor that assists while the rider pedals up to 28 miles per hour. The rider of a Class three e-bike must:
- Be at least 16 years old and wear a bicycle helmet
- Not transport passengers
- Ride in a bike lane only if authorized by local authority or ordinance
Your San Diego e-bike injury attorney can analyze every detail of your case to determine how these laws apply to your case.
