Learning about the Law

South Yorkshire Safer Roads Partnership and Parkgate Mobility are working in collaboration to deliver a series of free of charge mobility scooter safety sessions for residents of South Yorkshire.

The aim of the course is to explain the lawful requirements, responsibilities, awareness and manoeuvrability skills to mobility scooter users in South Yorkshire.

The course is run for around two hours and is free of charge – providing places are booked in advance.

Tracy Simmons of Parkgate Mobility said “Working with South Yorkshire Police to develop these sessions has provided a great opportunity to raise awareness of the importance of mobility scooter safety.”

We run these courses at outreach sessions including care homes and community groups, if your group is interested in taking part, please get in touch with us.
