Can I operate a motorized skateboard at age 14?


Motorized skateboard use is covered by city laws. In general, city laws require motorized skateboard riders to be at least 14 years old, follow traffic signs and rules and wear a helmet while riding it. See a sample of motorized skateboard laws in the laws section of this website. To be sure, check with your local police department to find out about laws concerning motorized skateboards in your community.

Goped® is a brand name for an American made brand of scooter. I see a lot of questions asking if Gopeds® are illegal for kids. Well, no more so than other brands. And yes, anyone under 16 can't use them on the street. Check with your local DMV under moped/scooter laws.
