European Parliament Decides: No Compulsory Third Party Liability Insurance Required for E-Bikes

BRUSSELS, Belgium – Today, the European Parliament’s IMCO committee decided that there should be no compulsory third party liability insurance required for lower powered pedelecs/e-bikes. This is regarded as an important decision because the Motor Insurance Directive obliges all motor vehicles in the EU to be covered by compulsory third party insurance. It ensures that if a vehicle is insured for third party liability in one EU Member State the cover applies across the whole of the EU.
