What are the electric bike laws in Australia?
In Australia, each state is responsible for establishing their own rules for electric bikes.
In summary, here are the regulations state by state. Bikes that meet these requiements are not required to be registered & riders do not need a licence. Riders must still follow all standard bike & road rules. For a more detailed explanation see the article below.
|State||Max Power||Max Speed||Throttles?|
250w = Max speed of 6km/h when using throttle only
200w = no stated speed limit
|QLD||250w||25km/h||Max speed of 6km/h when using throttle only|
|SA||250w||25km/h||Max speed of 6km/h when using throttle only|
