Age restrictions for eBikes vary from state to state and are often only applicable to Class 2 or Class 3 electric bikes.
Eight states require riders to be 14 or over to ride unaccompanied at all classification levels. These states are Alabama, Alaska, Michigan, New Hampshire, North Carolina, Utah, and Virginia. In some states, riders under this age can still ride electric bikes when supervised by an adult over 18.
Six states have eBike regulations, which require riders to be 15 years or older, and fifteen states require riders to be over 16. There are some state-specific exceptions to these rules if an adult accompanies the rider. Many states do not have an official age requirement to ride, but most of those states require riders under either 16 or 18 to wear helmets.
