Free e-Scooter Trainings and Safety Clinic for Those 18-and-Older to be Held Oct. 15-16

Residents 18-and-older interested in lessons and safety clinics regarding e-scooters will have the opportunity to attend free clinics on Friday, Oct. 15, and Saturday, Oct. 16, sponsored by the Montgomery County Department of Transportation.

Participants can take a test ride, learn safety tips and get details on basic scooter laws. Participants must have a valid driver’s license. No registration is required to attend a clinic. The clinics generally will last about two hours and e-scooters will be available at each site. Those interested in e-scooters can stop in at any time during the two-hour clinics.

The upcoming scooter clinic schedule:
  • Friday, Oct. 15. 4-6 p.m. Silver Spring Civic Building, One Veteran's Place, Silver Spring.
  • Saturday, Oct. 16. Noon-2 p.m. Montgomery College. 850 Hungerford Dr., Rockville. (Parking Lot 13).
E-scooters can help bridge the "first-mile/last-mile" gap of public transportation to provide the flexibility to easily get to and from a user's ultimate destination. Currently, Bird, Lime and Spin participate in the County’s Dockless Vehicle Pilot Program
