Fuel prices are still so very high and the amount a daily commute costs is substantial each month. With the warmer months approaching, and even more reasons to think about giving your car a rest, an electric scooter or motorbike might be worth considering. Not only would you be doing your bit towards helping the environment, but with the cost of buying a new scooter or electric motorbike as little as £43 per month*, you'll notice some extra money left over.

This brand new NEO from Yamaha is a light, urban, runaround with fabulous acceleration. With a maximum range of up to about 24 miles (up to 42 miles with a second battery), this is a great option for the shorter commute or around town travel. The removable battery can be charged at home overnight.

Such an affordable option from this manufacturing giant of the bike world, the Piaggio One has a range of just over 30 miles and a home charge time of six hours. Ideal for those commutes which are just too far to walk and means there's no hanging about for the next packed bus.
The Italian classic Vespa comes in an electric version. With a range of up to 62 miles and fully charged using the under seat battery charger in four hours using a wall-mounted socket at home or a public charger, the Eletrrica is definitely an inner-city option with additional connectivity.
The short answer? Yes. If you were awarded your driving licence before 2001 you are legally able to ride any electric scooter or motorbike with a top speed of 30mph or under. They are the equivalent of a 50cc moped or scooter and you can literally ride away on them today.
If you received your driving licence after 2001 or wish to ride a more powerful electric bike, you will need to get a CBT certificate before riding away. The CBT course lasts a day or two and typically costs between around £165 and £325.
