Can mobility scooters be driven on the road?

The following information is kindly provided by members of the Guardia Civil based in Torrevieja, Costa Blanca, N332 – “Can mobility scooters be driven on the road?”
Although the first mobility scooters were created to be used in pedestrian areas, they have since evolved and they now have similar technical characteristics to other vehicles.

Having reached this point, it is important to distinguish between two types of scooters among the dozens of models available in the market; those with or without lights, etc.

Click on the following link and you will see more about the new regulation from Trafico about these vehicles involving licences, insurance and their position on the road.

We want to thank MABEQ (a Mobility Scooter Shop located in Orihuela Costa) for letting us to use its facilities to make this report.
