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’ will help you use it safely.
This guide has information about who can use a motorised mobility device, their responsibilities as a user, how to choose the right motorised mobility device and how to avoid crashes with pedestrians and other road users. The handbook can be ordered by visiting 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 explains which mobility aids are suitable, and not suitable, for in-vehicle transport while the user remains seated on the mobility aid.
