Do I need a licence to ride a mobility scooter on the road?
No. You do not need take a test nor have a driving license to use a mobility scooter. It is, though, a legal requirement that only disabled people may use Class 2 or Class 3 scooters (unless the user is conducting a sales demonstration). You do not need to be registered disabled but must have a physical disability, injury or medical condition which means you cannot, or have difficulty, walking.
Do I need insurance for a mobility scooter?
The Department for Transport states that: “it is strongly advised that people take out insurance to cover personal safety, other people's safety and the value of the vehicle.” It is not at present a legal requirement.
Do I need to register my mobility scooter with the DVLA?
Only Class 3 vehicles (with a maximum speed of 8mph) must be registered. The DVLA will then issue you with a “nil duty” (ie no road tax is payable) tax disc which you are legally required to display on your scooter.
Where can I get independent advice and information on using a mobility scooter?
The Department for Transport has published a free booklet called Mobility scooters and powered wheelchairs on the road - some guidance for users. Click here to download it.
