A mobility scooter can be such a great asset and help to those with walking difficulties. However, you must be aware of what you can and cannot do on one. You do not want to end up on national news because you have gone the wrong way down a dual carriageway
The Excel Galaxy Plus, as shown above, is just one of 8mph road going mobility scooters that we offer. This is designed to be used both on the pavement when driven at 4mph or less, or on the road. It cannot go onto dual carriageways or motorways.
This week police in Derbyshire had to rescue a person who had inadvertently started to drive down a dual carriageway. Even worse he was going the wrong way!
It is legal to take your mobility scooter on the road if it is a class 3 version providing its registered. This must be done with the DVLA as the owner of any vehicle that uses the highways is required to.
With power chairs and mobility scooters that can travel up to 4mph, all Class 2 products can only ride on pavements. Obviously, they can cross roads as needed but it is illegal for them to be ridden down the road.
When we at mobilityproducts4u.org supply any orders for our range of mobility scooters we make sure it is demonstrated. Our specialist logistics company not only deliver your new scooter, but they also assemble it and then give you a full demonstration. You will know what every button does, how to steer it properly and shown how to charge it.
Mobility scooters both 4mph class 2 or 8mph an hour class 3 versions can be life-changing. Even power chairs give you, the user freedom you will have long forgotten, imagine being able to go out on your own again!
