Is a license required to ride EVIE S1 and T1?Updated a year ago

In the European Union (EU), the regulations for electric bicycles are governed by the EU's Electric Pedal Assisted Cycles (EPAC) legislation. According to the EPAC regulations, electric bicycles with a maximum continuous power output of 250 watts and a pedal assistance speed limited to 25 kilometers per hour (15.5 miles per hour) are classified as "Pedelecs." The EVIE S1 and T1 fall under the “Pedelec” category. 

In most EU countries, Pedelecs that meet these specifications are treated as regular bicycles and do not require a specific license or registration to ride. They can be used on public roads, bike lanes, and other designated cycling areas in a similar manner to traditional bicycles. 

However, it's important to note that certain countries within the EU may have slight variations or additional regulations specific to their national legislation. Therefore, it is always recommended to check the specific regulations of the country you are in or planning to ride in to ensure compliance with local laws.
