🇺🇸South Carolina State Electric Bike Laws

Come on. Start your cycling journey. Before your ride, please read this post about South Carolina State Electric Bike Laws before your ride.

E-bikes lack a specific classification under current South Carolina traffic laws. However, “e-bikes” are “vehicles” and are therefore subject to the requirements for “vehicles.”

E-bikes equipped with motors that have a power output of less than 750 watts are specifically exempt from the definition of “moped.” Therefore, e-bikes are not subject to requirements that apply to “mopeds,” such as licensing and registration.

If your e-bike was a power output higher than 750w you need licensing and registration to operate it. 

There aren’t any age restrictions to riding an electric bike in South Carolina. 

There aren’t any laws around wearing helmets and electric bikes in South Carolina. Helmets are required for regular bike riders under the age of 18.

E-bikes are subject to the rules of the road that apply to vehicles.


Laws and policies can change at any time rendering the above information outdated and non-applicable. TOMEBIKE strongly encourages checking with City, County, State and other local agencies for the most recent laws governing the proper, legal use of electric bicycles in your area.
