Electric Bike Law in Northern Ireland

As members of the BAGB (Bicycle Association) we get updates on all sorts of regulations and information. We have recently found out that the regs for electric bikes in Northern Ireland are not the same as they are for the rest of the UK.

It seems that an electric bike, that we treat as a conventional pedal cycle here, is not the same in Norther Ireland. Regulations were not carried over and at the moment electric bikes or EAPC's are classed as moped's in NI.

This is set to change as politicians work to get this oversight in the regulations brought into line. You can read more about Northern Ireland Ebike Legislation on the Batribike website.

  1. These laws are for the Electric Bicycle Kit owners and are totally different from the united kingdom as the government of Northern Ireland don't understand a electric bicycle as a conventional pedal cycle and they are taking the strict action for the electric bike owners who have not updated their license.
