Where Can You Drive Your Mobility Scooter?



Where can you legally drive your mobility scooter? Stick with us as we go into detail on where you can drive it!

Are Mobility Scooters Allowed on Pavements?

Yes, they are! All mobility scooters are separated into 2 classes by the government:

  • ‘class 2’ - these cannot be used on the road (except where there is not a pavement) and have a maximum speed of 4 mph
  • ‘class 3’ - these can be used on the road, and have a maximum speed of 4 mph off the road, and 8 mph on the road

All of our models below are a class 2 mobility scooter meaning they are designed for pavement use only!

Can Scooters Ride on Cycle Lanes or Bus Lanes?

Scooters must not be driven on cycle lanes or bus lanes - you must ride on the main part of the road, or the pavement.

Are Mobility Scooters Allowed in Shops?

Yes! By law all public buildings must have disabled access, and this includes access for mobility scooters. However if you have a larger mobility scooter then this may not be suitable to drive around in a small shop with narrow aisles
