8 miles per hour mobility scooters are a fantastic option for a scooter, as they will help you keep your independence and get out and about with ease and speed.
8mph mobility scooters have a powerful battery, as this determines the scooter's speed. You can get it replaced if you notice a dip in the scooters’ performance over time.
The average walking pace is 2-3mph. With an 8mph scooter, you can get from a to b at up to 4 times quicker without having to strain yourself.
8mph mobility scooters are considered class 3 mobility scooters. Class 3 scooters allow you to go up to 4mph with them on sidewalks and up to 8mph on roads. Unlike class 2 scooters, you can use 8mp scooters on all roads besides motorways and dual carriageways.
So, if you will be using your scooter on the road or if you want to go longer distances like shopping or family and friends' houses or on a journey around the park, then an 8mph scooter is the choice for you. It is much quicker, more efficient and more durable than other scooters, suitable for longer journeys. Additionally, comfort is vital when designing an 8mph scooter as users tend to use them for longer trips.
Also, class 3 mobility scooters are no wider than 85cm, which ensures you can get around quickly. All the class 3 scooters that we sell have brilliant safety features to keep you safe when you are using them. Some features include sturdy brakes, lighting, indicators, hazard warning lights and mirrors.
Furthermore, we ensure that our range of mobility scooters are very comfortable for you. We also have a selection of mobility scooter accessories if you want to enhance comfort further. Our site offers cushions, which will keep you comfortable and non-aching when using a scooter.
You do not need a driving licence or pay road tax with our 8mph mobility scooters, but you do need to register ownership of it with the DVLA.
