Electric Vehicles: Safety

Volume 455: debated on Monday 15 January 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what regulations govern the use of disabled person’s mobility scooters; and what recent representations he has received on the use of mobility scooters. (113523)

The use of mobility scooters is governed by the “Use of Invalid Carriages on Highways Regulations 1988”, statutory instrument 1988 No.2268.

Representations have been received from stakeholders on general use, but the vast majority were seeking advice on registration of their vehicles. As registration is the responsibility of the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency, such representations have been passed to it for advice and guidance.
