In Texas, an electric personal assistive mobility device (EPAMD) is defined as a self-balancing, two non-tandem wheeled device propelled by an electric system with an average power of 750 watts or one horsepower. As such, hoverboards are allowed to be operated on residential streets, roadways, and public highways with a speed limit of 30 miles per hour or less.

They can be used to directly cross a highway in a marked or unmarked crosswalk, in the absence of a sidewalk, or when directed by a traffic control device or law enforcement officer. EPAMDs can also be operated on paths designated for exclusive bicycle use.

When using EPAMDs on roads, riders must stay as close as possible to the right-hand edge. Additionally, EPAMDs are permitted on sidewalks. The operation of EPAMDs is subject to the same provisions as bicycles, unless stated otherwise. These laws were added in 2003.
