- Complete a simple registration form with your contact details, emergency contact details, your weight and height – assistance is available to fill in the form if needed
- You’ll be matched to the most suitable vehicle for your needs and trained on how to use it correctly and responsibly
- For scooters and power chairs – you will need to complete an insurance assessment and form to check you can use the equipment appropriately
