Regulations on mobility scooters need to be addressed, according to Executive General Manager of Community and Membership for the RACT Stacey Pennicott.

This comes off the back of the Nationals push for a speed limit of 6km/hr for a mobility scooters.

The attention has raised a number of questions around scooters, particularly about training, regulations and accreditation.

Ms Pennicott speaks with Brian Carlton about the need to look at the lack of research, statistics and regulation around mobility scooters.

They also discuss the idea of a driving test for international visitors.
