Wheels to Work Scheme
Accessing your employment potentialA moped loan scheme for people aged 16 or over living in the districts of East Hampshire, Test Valley, Winchester and New Forest
|Who the scheme is for|
The Council can loan you a moped for three months to a year, which will help you get to and from your job, training or job interviews.
|Obtaining a licence|
You must have at least a provisional licence for motorbikes, which you can obtain by applying via GOV.UK. You will need to have passed your Compulsory Basic Training (CBT). If you haven’t already passed your CBT we can arrange this for you and even cover the cost of this.

|The scheme is operated by Community First New Forest|
Their Wheels to Work co-ordinator can explain more about the scheme and provide you with an application form:
New Forest & Test Valley districts
Winchester & East Hampshire districts
Alternatively you can also contact us at Hampshire County Council
Ideally you would need to make sure that there is someone who knows you professionally, (anyone supporting you in work, your job search or training) who can provide a reference to your application.
This could be your manager or someone from the Youth Service or Job Centre. Please ask our Wheels to Work Co-ordinator for more information on who would be suitable if you are not sure.
