You wouldn’t let your child drive your car, so don’t be tempted to rent out an e-scooter on their behalf

It’s easy to see why rental e-scooters can appeal to children and younger teenagers, however regulations around hiring them are there to keep young people and other road users safe. E-scooters are categorised as motor vehicles so to rent a Voi e-scooter, riders must be at least 18 years old and hold a provisional or full driving licence.
