Woman spotted on mobility scooter on the A3

Published at 12:22pm 20th June 2017.

Footage has emerged of a woman riding her mobility scooter on the A3 in Guildford. 

Neil Wibberley‏ spotted the unusual driver on the northbound carriageway on Monday (June 20) night. 

The video shows her riding round the inside lane of the roundabout - causing cars behind to slow down.

We've taken a look at the laws into riding mobility scooters on the road. 

You don’t need a licence to drive a mobility scooter or powered wheelchair, but you may have to register it.

Only certain types can be driven on the road, but only at a maximum speed of 8mph. 

WATCH the moment she was spotted:

Mobility scooters and powered wheelchairs come in 2 categories:

  • ‘class 2 invalid carriages’ - these can’t be used on the road (except where there isn’t a pavement) and have a maximum speed of 4mph
  • ‘class 3 invalid carriages’ - these can be used on the road, and have a maximum speed of 4mph off the road, and 8mph on the road

You don’t need to register a class 2 invalid carriage.

You must register class 3 invalid carriages.

It's not clear what type of mobility scooter this one is - but we're pretty certain is shouldn't be on the A3!
