Help and advice
If you are using a powered mobility scooter or buggy for the first time, or if it is a while since you have driven on the road, it is advisable to get some training. For details, contact your local Mobility Centre or your local authority's Road Safety Unit, or contact the Department for Transport
Always go to an approved supplier. Please contact BHTA for advice if you are in doubt about a supplier.
It is important to check that a scooter suits you and your home environment before buying. For example, where are you going to store it?
Equipment Demonstration Centres like the Disabled Living Foundation or any other Equipment Demonstration Centre in the UK may have a range of mobility scooters or buggies that you can try, and some of the manufacturers or suppliers offer a home demonstration service, so that you can make sure that your choice is right. This is particularly useful if you plan to use your scooter indoors.
