If you’ve bought a mobility scooter without paperwork, how can you tell what type it is?
There are two categories of mobility scooter.
Class 2 mobility scooters can’t be used on the road (except where there isn’t a pavement) and have a maximum speed of 4 mph. This type of mobility scooter does not need to be registered.
Class 3 mobility scooters can be used on the road, and have a maximum speed of 4 mph off the road, and 8 mph on the road. This type of scooter should be registered with the DVLA although you don’t need to for a registration plate.
If your scooter has a dial that allows you to adjust its top speed it’s a type 3.
Couples insurance cover for mobility scooters
Insurance from the ETA already represents great value at £65 per year to cover a mobility scooter or powered wheelchair worth up to £3,500, but you can now buy the same policy to cover two people at the same address for only £90 per year – a saving of 30 per cent.
You now also have the option of insuring your mobility scooter or powered wheelchair for £3,500, £5,000. £7,500 or even £10,000.
There’s never been a better time to buy ETA mobility scooter insurance.
Everyone who buys ETA mobility scooter insurance over the coming months will be entered into a prize draw to win a UK hotel break for two worth over £1,000.
