Class 3 Mobility Scooters
Welcome to our Class 3 Mobility Scooters department
Commonly known as road scooters or class C scooters, class 3 mobility scooters can travel up to 8mph and are designed to be used on the roads. Road scooters can be used on dual carriageways with speeds below 50mph (flashing amber lights must be fitted) but cannot be used in cycle lanes, bus lanes, or motorways. They are able to travel on pavements too but must have a way to limit the speed to 4mph which is normally achieved using a switch.
Due to their higher speed, they are also larger, more durable and travel further than class 2 mobility scooters. Generally, they have a range between 20-36 miles at 8mpg and have a capacity between 136-220kg (21.4-34.6 stone). They are not suitable for any users beyond this weight and aren’t suitable for being transported in cars or trains.
To be recognised as a class 3 mobility scooter, it must have at least one front headlight, rear lights, rear indicators, horn, at least one rear view mirror and emergency hand brakes. Enclosed mobility scooters can often be mistaken due to their look and size but they are not always class 3.
Although it does not require an MOT and is not subject to road tax, it must be registered with the DVLA. You can do this by completing a V55/4 form if you’re buying a new mobility scooter, or a V55/4 form if you’re buying a second-hand model. Insurance is not mandatory for class 3 mobility scooters, but it is strongly recommended.
