In China, non-pedalling electric bicycles that go slower than 20km per hour(12.4 mph) are considered as non-mechanically operated vehicle.
Electric bicycles are currently classified as bicycles in China and do notrequire a driving licence to operate.
But due to the rising number of related accidents happen due to inexperienceddrivers, the government now plans to set regulations.
A similar 'scooter-style' electric bicycle costs only 580 yuan (?67) on onlineshopping sites Alibaba.
In the UK, if you are 14 and over, there is no licence required to rideelectric bikes that meet requirements.
For any electric bikes that doesn't meet the EAPCs requirement needs to beregistered and taxed.
A driving licence is required and the motorist must wear a crash helmet.
