. . . it's a good idea to learn scooter skills.

It can help with the buying decision and increase your confidence.

If you don't yet have a scooter, in association with Clearwell Mobility, we can provide one for your use during the Stay Safe session. Please ask about this when you register.

You will be covered by our insurance for personal injury and third-party injury or damage while using the scooter during the event.

You will:

  • Gain useful everyday safety advice to help yourself and others
  • Appreciate how pedestrians interact with scooter users
  • Improve manoeuvrability, awareness and control skills
  • Better understand the law∗ affecting the use of mobility scooters
  • and - take away a copy of our Mobility Scooter Buying Guide to help you choose correctly.

PLUS - lots of useful tips to keep you SAFE!

(∗ For instance, powered wheelchairs and scooters MUST NOT travel faster than 4 mph on pavements or in pedestrian areas. This is far quicker than most people walk and you will need to control your speed to avoid injuring other pavement users.)

A scooter safety session lasts up to two hours
on a Thursday afternoon - and is FREE

You will receive a copy of our 'Guidelines for Safety', a certificate of attendance and a bright orange high-visibility jacket which you can either wear when on your scooter or display it by draping it over the back of the seat ('See and be Seen!')
