Even though most jurisdictions do not permit mobility scooters on the road, even if they were permitted, we would not recommend operating one on a road.

Some mobility scooters are allowed on the road – these are class 3 road legal scooters. These scooters can have a top speed of 8 mph – any scooter that can go faster is deemed illegal. Road scooters must have lights, reflectors, indicators and hazard warning lights. They must also have efficient braking systems, a horn and rear view mirror.

When using your mobility scooter always follow the same road rules that apply to pedestrians. Ride on the footpath, preferably at walking speed, which is 2–3 kilometres per hour. You should also cross the road at safe places, such as traffic lights with pedestrian signals and at pedestrian crossings.
