FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Frequently asked questions

Do I need a special charging point?


No you don't. All Niu models can be charged using a standard 13 amp domestic plug socket. It's as easy as charging your smart phone.. Plus the battery can be removed and taken indoors to charge.




What do I need to ride an electric scooter legally?


Electric scooters are treated the same as petrol machines. So, to ride a 50cc (or equivalent) machine with a maximum speed of 28mph, you either need: A full driving licence, if you passed your test before 1st February 2001. Or a full motorbike licence. Or have completed Compulsory Basic Training (CBT) and have a valid certificate. To ride a 125cc or above machine (or equivalent) with a maximum speed above 28mph you need: A full motorcycle licence. Or a valid CBT certificate.




When will you be open for business?
