Change to guidance on mobility vehicles

04 March 2015

BHTA has been engaging with the Department for Transport regarding changing the rules on weight for mobility vehicles. 
New guidance has been issued this week by the Department for Transport, which includes a maximum unladen weight of 150kg for a Class 3 vehicle. The guidance also allows for “necessary user equipment” to be carried on mobility vehicles and gives a new upper weight limit of 200kg for vehicles laden with equipment necessary “to meet specific clinical, postural, hygienic, caring or nursing requirements of the user”.
The guidance says “We recommend always going to an approved supplier who should also assess your needs and help you to choose the right vehicle” and refers users to BHTA for more information about suppliers.
