There are a huge variety of second hand scooters on the market
today. A second hand scooter is perfect for zipping

You’ll need to think about what you’re going to be using the
scooter for. This will help you to choose what kind of scooter to buy as well as whether or not the weather
conditions will be an issue. If you plan to use your scooter to zip around town then you’ll need a different kind
of scooter than you would for riding on major roads. You also won’t need to factor in any adverse weather

after 1 February 2001
must also complete a CBT course before
riding a moped on the road.
It’s important to wear
the correct protective gear. High visibility
jackets are always a good idea to keep the rider visible on a murky winter’s night. You should also ensure your vehicle is regularly serviced and
