Electric Mobility Scooter Safety Features


Modern mobility scooters incorporate many features to ensure the safety of the user and those around them.


To ensure maximum safety at all times always ensure that the scooter you buy is fit for purpose and is bought based on its intended use suitability rather than on price alone.


Always test the stability of the scooter and assess how secure it makes you feel, as many customers change their products shortly after purchase for this very reason. Electric mobility scooters are designed to be easy to use and as safe as possible. As a result both acceleration and braking are normally controlled by one lever, which if released, brings the vehicle to an immediate stop. This action also locks the scooter in position as if a handbrake had been applied. Always ask for a demonstration from your mobility company and refer to user manual prior to use.


Class 3 scooters can be used on the road and should have the following safety features fitted;


  • Front and rear lights
  • Head rest and arm rests
  • Charge level indicator
  • Indicators and hazard lights
  • Horn
  • Rear view mirror
  • Brakes

Many manufactures offer additional features such as;

  • Reverse warning siren
  • Puncture proof tyres
  • High visibility reflectors
  • Improved suspension
  • Easy carry battery bag

To reduce the risk of electric shock your mobility scooter should only be charged using the manufacturers supplied equipment, in a secure and dry environment.


To ensure the ongoing safety and reliability of your scooter an annual service completed by a trained engineer is highly recommended. This will check the condition of vital safety features such as the brakes.
