Scooter Regulations

Where Can Mobility Scooters Be Used


TYPES OF CLASS 2 SCOOTERS
Legally these scooters can travel up to 6.4kph (4mph) on pavements and are allowed on the road to cross from one side of the road to the other.


TYPES OF CLASS 3 VEHICLES
The main difference between Class 3 and Class 2 vehicles is that Class 3 vehicles tend to be larger and can be used on the roads where they can travel up to 12.8kph (8mph). It is usually possible to drive at 6.4 kph (4mph)and switch to 12.8kph (8mph).

Class 3 vehicle users do not require a driving license but should obey the highway code at all times. This includes complying with relevant eyesight requirements and not driving under the influence of alcohol, drugs etc.

Class 3 vehicles are not allowed on motorways, bicycle tracks or bus/cycle lanes. Although legally allowed on dual carriageways, this is not recommended.

Two speed settings, usually changed by a switch. 12.8kph - maximum speed Permitted only on the road. Not for use on the pavement or footpath. 6.4kph - 4mph maximum speed Permitted on the pavement or footpath. Lights/indicators/horn/rear view mirror/rear reflectors

The law requires class 3 vehicles to be fitted with all these features.

Flashing beacon
Optional - can be used when driving on the road to warn other road users of their presence, and must be used if driving on a dual carriageway.
Insurance is not legally required for any powered vehicle in either category, Class 2 for pavement use or Class 3 for pavement and road use.
However, it is recommended that the purchaser have at least public liability Insurance, covering accidental damage to other people and property
