Electric Bikes, Electric Scooters & Electric Skateboards

Mandatory E-Vehicle Safety & Registration Program

To help support the safe and responsible use of e-vehicles (e-bikes, e-scooters and e-skateboards), Irvine Unified School District middle and high schools have partnered with the Irvine Police Department (IPD) and will host safety presentations as part of IUSD’s new mandatory e-vehicle registration program.

Middle and high school students who travel to and from school using an electric vehicle are required to attend one of the following e-Vehicle Safety Presentations by IPD.

IMPORTANT: Any returning student that attended one of the safety meetings during the 2023 Spring semester at Portola HS, turned in a registration form, and was issued a black parking sticker DOES NOT need to attend another safety meeting. This process is only required once for a high school student’s career.

Please note: Middle school parent/guardian attendance is required to learn the rules and expectations of using e-vehicles safely and responsibly. As our vital partners, your support is critical to helping keep students safe.


Students will learn:

  • About the different e-vehicles
  • Rules of the road and e-bike laws
  • Helmet safety
  • Rules for e-bike passengers
  • How to avoid distracted operation of e-vehicles
  • Safety concerns
  • IUSD’s mandatory registration program and school procedures

    Proof of Attendance and Parking Permit

Students and their parent/guardian must also complete and submit a Student e-Vehicle Registration Form provided by their school to obtain a parking permit sticker. Students are required to have a parking permit to park their e-vehicle on campus. The deadline is 9/22/23.
