Motorised mobility devices

Motorised mobility devices include electric wheelchairs and mobility scooters and buggies that are used by people who are unable to walk or have difficulty walking.

If you use an electric wheelchair or any other motorised mobility device, then the Guide for choosing and using motorised mobility devices [PDF 6.4Mb] will help you use it safely.

This guide has information about who can use a motorised mobility device, their responsibilities as a user, and how to choose the right motorised mobility device. The handbook can be downloaded here or if you prefer a hard copy it can be ordered via our online bookshop, calling (03) 8391 3255 or by visiting a VicRoads Customer Service Centre

The Victorian Taxi Services Commission also has information about carrying mobility aids in wheelchair accessible taxis in Victoria. The Taxi Services Commission's website (External link) explains which mobility aids are suitable, and not suitable, for in-vehicle transport while the user remains seated on the mobility aid.  Carrying mobility aids in wheelchair accessible taxis Victoria  (External link) (PDF)

If you use a motorised mobility device, you must obey the same road rules as pedestrians.
