NEW JERSEY’S CLASS 1 AND 2 E-BIKE LAW FOR THE ROAD
» New Jersey designates two classes of low-speed electric bicycles:
Class 1: Bicycle equipped with a motor that provides assistance only when the rider is pedaling, and that ceases to provide assistance when the e-bike reaches 20 mph. Class 2: Bicycle equipped with a throttle-actuated motor, and that ceases to provide assistance when the e-bike reaches 20 mph.
Class 1 and 2 e-bikes are regulated like bicycles. The same rules of the road apply to both e-bikes and traditional bicycles.
Class 1 and 2 e-bikes are not subject to the registration, licensing or insurance requirements that apply to motor vehicles
Class 1 and 2 e-bikes may ride on bicycle paths.
A local government can restrict where class 1 and 2 e-bikes are allowed to ride. When in doubt, check local rules and regulations.
Bicycles cannot be operated on a sidewalk intended for pedestrian use, except if expressly allowed. »
