Time to rev it up? We look at mobility scooters.

It's frustrating for many elderly or disabled people – relying on family and friends just to go to the local store or check the mail. Mobility scooters can greatly enhance the quality of people's lives by giving them back some independence.

We tell you what to look for when choosing a scooter, how often to get it serviced, legal requirements, and safety tips for driving.

Please note this is a guide only and doesn't contain test results or brand-specific recommendations.
