Wheels 2 Work is a moped-loan scheme which aims to help people access employment, training or education that would otherwise be inaccessible due to poor public transport connections or out-of-hour work patterns.

The project has been funded by a number of Area Action Partnerships in partnership with Durham County Council, in response to a growing need to help local people get to work or college.  The idea behind the scheme is to provide a loan of a moped for 6 months to help people to establish themselves in work and/or training.

Mopeds of either 50cc or 125cc are available to people aged 16+ as long as they have a provisional or full driving licence.  The cost is £25 per week for a 50cc and £30 per week for a 125cc moped,

Riders are provided with brand new protective clothing (helmet, armoured jacket, gloves, waterproof over-trousers and high visibility vest) and a heavy-duty lock, and are also covered for bike insurance, road tax, breakdown cover, as well as regular servicing of the moped. There may be a chance to buy the moped from the scheme at the end of the loan period.

Ace Motorcycles in Pity Me, Durham provides the motorcycle training (also included as part of the scheme) which involves a full day’s Compulsory Basic Training, followed by a 2 hour CBT plus session on a separate day, when clients are provided with additional road time and are issued with their clothing and bike.
