Can I overtake an electric scooter in a cycle lane?

With the introduction of e-scooters being trialled, is a driver allowed to cross a white line to overtake one? It may well be travelling at less than 10mph, but will it be classified as a bicycle?
The Highway Code permits one to cross a white line to overtake a cyclist providing it is travelling at less than 10mph.
