    Update - Hastings Direct will insure my scooter for free on the condition that is is not used on the public highway - this covers loss and third party indemnity - this is better than the £70 + that a seperate policy would have cost me !!!
    My home policy only cost £130 !!

    Pavements etc. are part of the public highway, as distinct from being part of the public road. If an insurance company told me that any form of powered transport could not be used on the public highway I would seek urgent clarification from them on this point.
