E-scooters should have registration plates to make it easier to identify and punish dangerous riders who 'pull wheelies', a Conservative MP argued.

A government pilot scheme of rental e-scooters is being trialed in about 20 parts of the country to assesses the safety implications of the vehicles.

However, Rob Butler, MP for Aylesbury - one of the towns included in the e-scooter scheme - urged the Transport Secretary to take steps to make it easier to identify and punish 'irresponsible' riders should e-scooter use be given the go-ahead.

Speaking in the Commons, Mr Butler said: 'Aylesbury has recently begun a trial of e-scooters and I have been lucky enough to try one myself.

'But at the same time I was sticking to my cycle lane, others were trying to pull wheelies in the middle of the road. It was quite a feat, let me tell you.

'But will the Secretary of State consider requiring registration plates on all scooters if legislation is introduced to permit them so that irresponsible riders can be identified and punished?'

Mr Shapps replied: 'My honourable friend is absolutely right.

'Whilst we're very keen to see the rollout of e-scooters - about 20 communities (are) already enjoying the benefits - it's also the case we want to make sure the regulations are right, that every single e-scooter is properly insured and built to the proper standards.

'That's why we're carrying out a very careful and cautious programme to roll them out ... and we will be reporting back to the House as we get what we learn from those trials and ensure the problems (Mr Butler) raises are not experienced elsewhere.'

Riders taking part in the pilot scheme need to have a full or provisional car, motorcycle or moped licence, and have been urged to wear a helmet.

The trial period aims to assesses the safety implications of the vehicles and whether they reduce motor traffic.

Rental e-scooters will only be allowed on roads, and they will be limited to 15.5mph.
