Today, the Quingo team wants to give you a few points to bear in mind when driving your scooter, which will help you have the best possible experience, whilst retaining maximum levels of security and comfort.
What you need to know before driving your Quingo
Before purchasing your Quingo, an advisor will have talked you through everything you need to know to ensure you have the safest and most enjoyable experience.
Here’s an outline of some of the key points to consider:
- Before driving your Quingo, make sure you get comfortable. Remember – you should always place your feet on the footplates.
- At this point, you can switch your Quingo on and check to see if the battery level indicator is in the green area. If not, you should charge your Quingo. We’ve written a useful guide to charging your Quingo’s batteries on this blog.
- Pull in your right hand accelerator lever slowly for your vehicle to move off. The more you pull the lever, the faster your Quingo will go. As you get more accustomed to the lever’s functionality, you can increase the speed.
- To brake, release the lever. If you become unsure or if you feel unsafe then release the lever.
- When turning, slow down and look in the direction you wish to travel. If you come up to a blind corner you should sound your horn.
- If you’re taking any new medication it’s very important that you check with your doctor or physician that your ability to drive your Quingo won’t be affected.
- To get off your Quingo, make sure that you’ve stopped safely on a flat area. Remember to turn off the ignition and remove the key before getting off.
