Scooters

We have a huge selection of electric mobility scooters available, so you are sure to find a mobility scooter that suits your requirements from our excellent range of mobility scooters either in our shop or right here online.

We have three different types of mobility scooters available to purchase:

Car Transportable Scooters

Car Transportable mobility scooters have a top speed of 4 mph, and a car transportable scooter can be dismantled very easily so that they can easily be transported in a car boot, or stored at home in a cupboard or garage etc. 

Pavement Mobility Scooters

Also with a top speed of 4mph, pavement mobility scooters are the ideal mobility scooters for everyday usage. If you need to pop to the shops, or go just go for a drive, pavement mobility scooters are legal to use on public pavements for total convenience.

6 & 8mph Mobility Scooters

These mobility scooters have a greater top speed and are road legal mobility scooters. They are very robust mobility scooters that are suitable for use on the roads as well as the pavements, offering complete freedom. 6 & 8mph mobility scooters are capable of covering longer distances than other mobility scooters giving greater comfort and stability.

Mobility Scooter Frequently Asked Questions

How far will my mobility scooter travel?

Ranges vary depending on the model, weight of the user and the terrain but they usually vary 8 to 35 miles depending on the size of the batteries. Please check the specification on each of the mobility scooter product pages.

What is the maximum user weight capacity?

Each mobility scooter will have a different maximum user weight so check the specification on each of the mobility scooter product pages.

Do I need to take a driving test?

No, currently there are no legal requirements to undertake a test to drive a mobility scooter. However we recommend you drive with consideration to pedestrians and the highway code be obeyed at all times.

How do I maintain my mobility scooter?

New mobility scooters require very little maintenance other than we recommend an annual service. It is recommended that certain steps are undertaken to ensure long life.

  • Keep the Battery Charged Daily - we recommend you charge your mobility scooter every day whether you use it or not. Charging periods should last for approximately 8 hours
  • Keep the Mobility Scooter Clean and store in a dry place away from the rain, wind and cold areas
  • Check the tyre pressure regularly

Do I need to take our insurance?

Although insurance is not compulsory yet, the Department of Transport states: 'Although it is not a legal requirement, an insurance policy is strongly advised." We therefore recommend that you take out insurance on your mobility scooter to cover in the event of accidental damage (including fire, theft and malicious damage) and personal liability arising from its ownership or use. For more information on our insurance policies please call us on 01934 838363.

Such scooters are for both road and pavement use. They must also be fitted with a device capable of limiting the maximum speed to 4mph for use when travelling on footways/pavements. The unladen weight must not exceed 150kgs. These do required to be registered with DVLA.

How do I apply to register my class 3 invalid carriage?

We can help with this when the scooter is purchased from us, we will complete the DVLA form and help you with the process.

If you are an owner of a class three mobility scooter (i.e. mobility scooters that can travel up to 8mph) you are required to register the vehicle with the DVLA and display a FREE tax disc. One you have registered the vehicle for the first time the DVLA will send a yearly reminder to renew the tax. Renewal can be undertaken in your local post office or over the phone or by the internet. No payment is currently required.

In order to register and license your mobility scooter you will need to complete and return a V55/4 form available from the DVLA. Evidence of the vehicle's age (if available) will need to be submitted with the application together with documentation confirming the keeper's name and address.
