Free Electric Scooter Training and Safety Clinic for Those 18-and-Older Will Be Available on Saturday, June 11, in Rockville

Residents 18-and-older who are interested in electric scooter lessons will have the opportunity to attend a free clinic in Rockville on Saturday, June 11, 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 and walk ups are welcome. The clinic generally will last about two hours and e-scooters will be available.

The clinic will be held at Montgomery College’s Rockville campus at 850 Hungerford Dr. in Rockville. (Parking Lot 13).

 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.
