OPEN CONSULTATIONS

 

Public consultation on the regulation of electric bikes (e-bikes) in the Falkland Islands

The consultation will remain open from 30 May 2022 until 19 June 2022.

 

FIG is proposing to make a certain class of e-bike exempt from the definition of a motor vehicle under the Road Traffic Ordinance 1948, and so remove the need for owners to fulfil the current legal requirements to have a licence to ride one, and to register, tax and insure it.

This consultation asks your views on the proposed definition of an exempt class e-bike, and we welcome responses from everyone who lives in the Islands, whether you live in Stanley, Camp, the outer islands or MPC. 

Current e-bike owners, and those who intend to purchase an e-bike, are asked if their e-bike would be considered exempt under the proposed definition.

There are three ways you can respond to this consultation:

  1. The quickest and easiest way, and to help us save paper, is to complete the online survey, available here: e-bike consultation
