Oxfordshire People Plan | Wheels to Work

Wheels to Work logo

A new initiative funded through Job Centre Plus enables people seeking work to get access to a 50cc or 125cc moped to enable them to get to work. Wheels to Work provides a fully serviced, insured moped with a maintenance plan, roadside assistance, secure lock, delivery and tracker, on a lease arrangement. Oxfordshire job seekers looking to work in social care can benefit through this.

As a basic starting point, all applicants will need a Provisional Driving Licence (£34 online or £43 postal service)

For costing purposes (see also the Wheels to Work Quick Guide), the following applies:

  • 125 cc hire fee | £52 per week
  • 50 cc hire fee | £46 per week
  • Provisional licence | £34 online or £43 by post
  • An online provisional licence currently takes one week to process
