For all bicycles with electric pedal assistance up to 25 km/h, so-called pedelecs, the traffic regulations for bicycles apply. That includes pedelecs with starting aid, which acts up to 6 km/h without pedaling. This eliminates restrictions such as the minimum age of 15 years and the duty to a moped certificate, a driver's license or a birth date certificate before 1 April 1965.
