Mole Valley

Reigate & Banstead


How far can I travel?

You can travel freely from your home to place of employment, training or eduction (but let us know if this exceeds a 40-mile round trip daily).

What is the loan period of the moped?

Loans are usually for up to one year but may be extended in exceptional circumstances.

How much does it cost?

Per week Per month Per Annum
£28.00 £121.33 £1,456.00

The costs include VAT and are payable by a monthly standing order.

Who taxes and insures the moped?

The mopeds are owned, taxed and insured by the East Surrey Rural Transport Partnership. In the event of an insurance claim, the policy excess will be payable by the rider.

What about servicing?

The mopeds are serviced at our nearest motorcycle dealership. Riders are expected to take their mopeds to be serviced where they can choose to either wait at the dealership whilst the service is completed, or book a courtesy moped through the co-ordinator (subject to availability).

Do I need a licence to ride a moped?

Yes. You must have either a provisional or full licence to ride a moped. Licence application forms are available from your local post office or may be orderted online from

Do I need special training?

Yes. The rules are constantly updated, however, all new riders on a provisional licence and all new car drivers with a full licence will need to hold a certificate of "Compulsory Basic Training" (CBT) before being allowed to take to the road on a moped. The scheme includes a one day CBT course which includes classroom tuition, off road and on road tuition and is held at a local approved training centre. It also includes a Safety Seminar which each rider will be required to attend after successfully completing CBT.

Do I need special safety clothing?

Yes, but the scheme will loan you all you need free of charge! You will get a motorcycle helmet, padded reflective jacket and padded gloves which are yours to keep at the end of a 6-month loan. Drivers leaving the scheme any earlier will be required to hand back the jacket and gloves but may keep the helmet.

Do I need parental permission to join the scheme if I am 16 or 17 years old?

Yes. All riders are asked to sign our "Moped Loan Terms and Conditions" and as a legal document, all those riders under the age of 18 will need their parent(s) of guardian(s) to act as a guarantor.
