Customer Question

Is it legal to ride an electric scooter on a pavement if you do not exceed speed of 6mph? I want to carry some cosmetic products on it to deliver them to customers door to door as I find it too tiring to always walk and carry a trolley. The scooter I am looking to ride can carry heavy loads including catalogues without any damaged being caused to the scooter is strong and durable and would save my legs.

Thank you for your question.
Only a Class 2 or 3 mobility scooter travelling at less than 6km/h, ie, 4mph is permitted to drive on the pavement. All other non mobility scooters which are electric are classed as vehicles and cannot use the pavement.
Please leave a positive response so that I am credited for my time.
