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. We had a cup of tea and a chat with Robert, who's renting a moped on the scheme at the moment. He uses it to get to his job at Premier Inn. He told us a bit more about how it works and how it's helped him out. You must have at least a provisional licence for motorbikes, which you can obtain by applying via GOV. If you haven't already passed your CBT we can arrange this for you and even cover the cost of this. Their Wheels to Work co-ordinator can explain more about the scheme and provide you with an application form:. 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. Ask our Wheels to Work Co-ordinator for more information on who would be suitable if you are not sure.

Charity Number: 3 1. The Kickstart Moped Scheme Kickstart was established to assist people residing within the Norfolk, Suffolk and Cambridgeshire areas to secure, start or sustain employment, training or education. We also help individuals who are long term unemployed to address their complex barriers to employment. To achieve this, we offer our service user an affordable means of transport to provide them with the flexibility and independence they desire. Kickstart's standard model of operation provides the service user with either a Honda Vision 50cc moped or cc scooter. As a charity, Kickstart are always researching and applying for funding to ensure we can provide the cheapest financial option to the service user. However, should funding not be available, the rider must pay for these set up costs prior to a moped or scooter being issued to them.
