Hi, my name is MysterE! I have a question regarding Green Power scooters

Has anyone experienced the use of a Green Power scooter running at the designed speed of 15 mph which is the legal speed limit outside the UK.  I want to use my scooter on private land that is not subject to the normal road regulations, and I have contacted the manufacturer to find out the procedure for switching the 3 gear on, and they insist that I sign away my rights regarding the warranty on the scooter, saying it is a modification.  Take the machine across the channel to France and there are no questions asked but here in the UK I have to give up my rights to a warranty.

    Hello @MysterE and welcome to the community!! 

    Just wanted to pop up and say Hi, although I am no scooter expert... my suggestion would to contact the DVLA to see if they could help you with your legal rights? Or contact the warranty/those who made the bike?

    I would add that the Green Power scooter is an amazing piece of kit and is great value at £1690 for the basic model and with the optional extras I had was a little under £2k.

    Hi @MysterE - Welcome to the community. I'm sorry I'm unable to answer your query, but hope Laura has been helpful with her advice. It does sound like a very good scooter, which other members may be interested in knowing about. :)
