Wheels to Work
Wheels to Work is a moped loan service allowing you to independently get to work, apprenticeships, training or job interviews.
The service is available for people with no access to suitable transport aged 16+ in Winchester and East Hampshire, and 16-25 in the New Forest and Test Valley.
9 out of 10 hirers on average have found employment thanks to the W2W scheme. A little help to start your journey goes a long way.
“It was good for me. It helped me get to my job which meant I could gain more qualifications and I will now be in a much better position to progress my career.”
‘Thank you wheels to work for accepting my son on to the scheme, my son was able to accept an apprenticeship in a rural location, learn a trade, work towards a qualification and save up for his own moped, all at the same time.”
We’ll helpfully provide:
- Your transport: A fully taxed, insured and maintained 50 cc or 110cc petrol, or a Horwin EK3 electric moped.
- Free training: You will get mandatory Compulsory Basic Training (CBT), free of charge from approved providers, and which will be valid for two years.
- All safety equipment: A free helmet and lock, plus gloves and jacket for a small fee.
- A loan for up to year: The typical loan period will be 3-6 months with a possible extension to a maximum of 12 months enabling you to save for your own transport in the meantime.
- Servicing: All of our mopeds are serviced and maintained as required.
‘I was amazed that within a week of being interviewed for the scheme I had taken my CBT and was riding around on my own moped, the scheme helped me grow in confidence and I was able to work and save for my own moped.’
