Free Electric Scooter Trainings and Safety Clinics for Those 18-and-Older Will Be Available in April, May and June

Residents 18-and-older who are interested in electric scooter lessons will have the opportunity to attend free clinics in May and June sponsored by the Montgomery County Department of Transportation (MCDOT). 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 and walk ups are welcome. 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 schedule of clinics:
Electric 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.
