In Virginia, all electric personal assistive mobility devices, electrically powered toy vehicles, and electric power-assisted bicycles (hoverboards fall under this umbrella) must have spill-proof, sealed, or gelled electrolyte batteries.

The speed limit for operating an electric personal assistive mobility device is 25 miles per hour, and for a motorized skateboard or scooter, it is 20 miles per hour. Individuals under the age of 14 cannot operate these devices unless supervised by someone at least 18 years old.

Electric personal assistive mobility devices can be operated on highways with a maximum speed limit of 25 miles per hour or less, as long as there is no sidewalk available or its use is prohibited. They can also be operated on crosswalks authorized for pedestrians, bicycles, or electric power-assisted bicycles.

However, these devices are not allowed on any Interstate Highway System component, except when specifically authorized by the Commonwealth Transportation Board for use on barrier-separated bicycle or pedestrian facilities that meet safety requirements.
