A folding scooter is a great solution for those who require a space saving mobility aid that easily fits into car boots, making them ideal for frequent car users or holiday goers alike.
Medium Sized Scooters
Medium sized mobility scooters that can be used on pavements and in shopping areas are called Class 2 scooters.
Class 2 scooters are smaller, lighter and often cheaper than those designed for the road. They should be driven at 4mph on pavements although some models are capable of much faster speeds.
Mobility scooters for the road are Class 3 vehicles. They are larger and heavier than their Class 2 cousins. You can drive them on any roads, except motorways (or dual carriageways that have a speed limit of 50mph or above). The maximum speed at which you can drive your scooter on a road is 8mph (it’s 4mph for pavements).

Looking after and regularly charging your scooter will increase its reliability and reduce its running costs. You must always read your owner’s manual and take particular note about how to charge the batteries. Please be assured that the battery charging uses about the same electricity as a 100 watt light bulb, so it won’t cost you a fortune to charge.
