Free E-Scooter Training: Learn to Ride Safely

Residents 18-and-older interested in lessons and safety clinics regarding e-scooters will have the opportunity to attend free clinics on Friday, Oct. 15, and Saturday, Oct. 16, sponsored by the Montgomery County Department of Transportation.

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. 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 upcoming scooter clinic schedule:

  • Friday, Oct. 15. 4-6 p.m. Silver Spring Civic Building, One Veteran's Place, Silver Spring.
  • Saturday, Oct. 16. Noon-2 p.m. Montgomery College. 850 Hungerford Dr., Rockville. (Parking Lot 13).

E-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, BirdLime and Spin participate in the County’s Dockless Vehicle Pilot Program

For more information about the e-scooter clinics, visit www.montgomerycountymd.gov/commute or call 240-777-8380.

I have never ridden an e-scooter so I would likely benefit from that training if I had an e-scooter.
