Although these mobility scooters are manufactured for people with disabilities who need to get about on a footpath, smooth surfaces or any other place they require to go, these specific scooters cannot be considered as a motor vehicle and are not allowed to be driven on an open road, unless when crossing the road or on a short distance where a footpath does not exist.

Traveling on public transport

Although mobility scooters are considered as a wheelchair and allowed on public transport, it is advisable to plan your travel to be sure of arriving at your final destination safely.

Always ensure to be visible to the driver to enable the driver to extend the ramp to get on board. Sometimes there are restrictions on the size of the mobility scooter and although most mobility scooters fit within the guidelines, additional accessories such as canopies might alter the size requirements.

Health and Social Benefit

Using a medical mobility scooter encourages a person to engage in more physical activities and gain their independence and feel secure about their wellbeing. It could also raise your self-esteem and also be able to socialize by going out and meeting your friends and relatives resulting in improving your health
