Am I allowed to have a passenger on my scooter in Denmark?

by Anna
(Copenhagen, Denmark)

I have a 30 km/hr scooter and it has seats for 2. I don't find anywhere where it is written that I may have a passenger on the back. Can I?


Answer: Anna... I'm not familiar at all with the laws in Denmark, but in most countries, it is not uncommon to see people riding 2 up (or even 3 up or 4 up in Asia!). I'd imagine that if your scooter is made to seat a second person, you're probably OK. The extra weight may greatly slow your scoot down, however, so be prepared. It also takes longer to stop with the extra weight.

2 people on a scooter in Denmark

Unfortunately no, it is not possible to ride a 30 Km/h or a 45 Km/h scooter with a passenger in Denmark, in dispute of the fact that the scooter is made for that and also in dispute of what can be done in ALL the rest of EU. (Yes, I am annoyed...)

A 30 Km/h scooter must run only on bike lanes, a 45 Km/h on streets, but both are categorized as "bicycle with engine assistance" by the old danish laws, even if EU laws are partially accepted.

To ride with a passenger, you have to step up to motorcycle category, like a 125 scooter.

Cheers!

Battery Tender Junior in package

A battery tender like the Battery Tender Jr. can make all the difference in whether your scooter will start right up each spring, after being stored for months.

Just about every scooter owner needs to have a battery tender, sometimes called a trickle charger. Unless you are lucky enough to live in a climate where you can ride all year long, chances are your scooter will be put on ice, figuratively-speaking, for at least a couple months every winter.

One of the key steps in winterizing a scooter is to protect your battery from draining during its "rest" period. This can – and will – happen if you leave your battery sitting untended in your cold scooter over the winter, even if it's in a garage or shed.
