Thinking of buying a teenager or young adult a present, it’s easy to simply get them a voucher and more or less tell them to get on with it. These days though there are several alternatives. Depending on the budget of course, one way of helping a y ounger person to get about easily without public transport and without the expense of owning a car is to invest in an e-scooter. No driving test is needed but if you get a road worthy one, a very thorough knowledge of the highway code will be a lifesaver. Knowing who has right on the road is essential. Once the scooter packaging has been removed, reading the supplier instruction is critical too. Ensuring the first battery charge is for at least 8 hours is always recommended to ensure it starts at its peak. Then even if the scooter has been used only a little, putting it on charge at the end of the day will maintain it and may prevent it needing changing in the future.
