What types of mobility scooters are covered?

You can get cover for a range of mobility scooters, including:

Class 2 Scooters

You can use class 2 mobility scooters on pavements and in shopping areas. They can be three wheel, four wheel and even five wheel models. If you want a small, light and affordable mobility scooter, then consider class 2 models, such as Pride Go-Go Elite Traveller Plus and Pro Rider Freedom Mobility Scooter. Maximum speed limit is 4mph.

Folding Mobility Scooters

Folding mobility scooters (also known as portable scooters or travel scooters) are small, lightweight and are easy to fold up or disassemble for transport and storage. Examples include Pro Rider Elite Portable Mobility Scooter, Drive Scout 3 and Shoprider Whisper. Maximum speed limit is 4mph.

Class 3 Scooters

You can use class 3 mobility scooters on the road, on pavements and in shopping areas. With the right tyres and rear wheel drive (RWD), you can even go off road. Class 3 mobility scooters are fairly large, with suitably large batteries and many manufacturers aim to make them super-comfortable and luxurious. They are relatively far-ranging and come with extra safety features, such as front and rear lights, indicators, horn, brakes and rear-view mirrors. These features are important if you drive your scooter on roads. Some of the best class 3 mobility scooters include: Drive Royale 4, Pride Colt Executive and Shoprider Cordoba. Maximum speed limit for class 3 mobility scooters is 8mph.

Manual wheelchairs also covered

According to UK law, you don’t need insurance for mobility scooters, but from a protection point-of-view comprehensive cover is non-negotiable. Surewise.com has you covered whether you accidentally knock someone down, scratch someone’s car or get a puncture. Mobility scooter covers also includes breakdown and roadside assistance.

If your scooter is damaged beyond repair or the cost of repairs is exceptionally high, we will replace it with a similar make and model. You can get mobility scooter insurance for a variety of UK manufacturers, including Pride, Kymco, Shoprider, Pro Rider, Drive Medical, Days Healthcare and Electric Mobility scooters.

Mobility Scooter Insurance Law

You are not required by law to have a licence to drive a mobility scooter or powered wheelchair, but it may have to be registered. According to law, class 2 invalid carriages are barred from the road and have a max speed of 4mph. Class 3 invalid carriages can be used on the road and have a max speed of 4mph off road, and 8mph on road. You don’t have to register class 2 invalid carriages.
