Who: For EReg Members and EReg partners
When: 2 November 2021, 11:00-13:00
There has been an increase in the use of special mopeds / light electric vehicles on the road. In contrast to mopeds, which fall under the European Regulation 168/2013, special mopeds are not regulated under the European legislation. Member states have their own rules and practices. Based on an EReg questionnaire, it is clear that there are many different national approaches to dealing with the special mopeds. The definition of what constitutes a special moped / light electric vehicle differs throughout Europe; some countries register them, others don’t and the same goes for issuing a licence plate. The aim of this EReg Academy is to provide more insight into the current situation with regards to these vehicles. Which rules and practices apply; are there any attempts to harmonise these practices; what are the challenges faced by the registration authorities and can we define some possible solutions to dealing with these challenges?
