 Warning – Do not operate your scooter for
the first time without completely reading and
understanding this owner’s handbook
1.
Do not operate scooter on public streets
and roadways. Be aware that it may be
difficult for traffic to see you when you are
seated on the scooter. Obey all local
pedestrian traffic rules. Wait until your path
is clear of traffic, and then proceed with
extreme caution.
2.
To prevent injury to yourself or others,
always ensure that the power is switched off
when getting on or off of the scooter.
3.
Always check that the drive wheels are
engaged (drive mode) before driving. Do not
switch off the power when the scooter is
still moving forward. This will bring the chair
to an extremely abrupt stop.
4.
5.
Do not use this product or any available
optional equipment without first completely
reading
and
understanding
these
instructions. If you are unable to understand
the warnings, cautions or instructions,
contact your dealer before attempting to
use this equipment, otherwise, injury or
damage may occur.
There are certain situations, including some
medical conditions, where the scooter user
will need to practice operating the scooter
in the presence of a trained attendant. A
trained attendant can be defined as a family
member or care professional especially
trained in assisting a scooter user in various
daily living activities. Consult with your
physician if you are taking any medication
that may affect your ability to operate your
scooter safely.
6.
Do not attempt to lift or move a scooter by
any of its removable parts including the
armrests, seats or shrouds. Personal injury
and damage to the scooter may result.
7.
Never try to use your scooter beyond its
limitations as described in this manual.
Royale By Drive Owner’s Handbook (Royale_IFU 06/12)
8.
Please do not sit on your scooter while it is
in a moving vehicle such as a car, bus or
train.
9.
Keep your hands away from the wheels
(tyres) while driving scooters. Be aware that
loose fitting clothing can become caught in
the drive wheels.
10. Consult your physician if you are taking
prescribed medication or if you have any
certain
physical
limitations.
Some
medications and limitations may impair your
ability to operate scooters in a safe manner.
11.
Do not drive or sit on the scooter when in
freewheel mode.
12.
Do not remove the anti-tipper (if fitted)
13.
Always switch off the scooter and charger,

work or using any tools on the scooter.
14.
Do not attempt to lift or move your scooter
by any of its removable parts, such as the
armrests, seats, or shroud.
15.
Do not climb a gradient at an angle. Always
drive straight up a gradient, as this greatly
reduces the risk of tipping or a fall. Do not
climb a gradient steeper than the scooter’s
limitation.
16.
Do not drive backwards down any step, kerb
or other obstacle. This may cause the
scooter to tip or fall.
17.
Always reduce your speed and maintain a
stable centre of gravity when cornering
sharply. Do not corner sharply when driving
scooters at higher speeds.
18.
Operating in rain, snow, salt, mist and on icy
or slippery surfaces may have an adverse
affect on the electrical system.
19.
Never sit on your scooter when it is being
used in connection with any type of lift or
elevation product. Your scooter is not
designed with such use in mind and any
damage or injury incurred from such use is
not the responsibility of Drive.
Page 2
 Modifications
Drive Medical Product has designed your scooter
to be as practical as possible. However, under no
circumstances should you modify, add, remove,
or disable any part or function of your scooter.
Personal injury and damage to the scooter may
result.
1.
Do not modify your power scooter in any way
not authorized by Drive. Do not use
accessories if they have not been tested or
approved for Drive products.
2. Get to know the feel of your power scooter
and its capabilities. Drive recommends that
you perform a safety check before each use
to make sure your scooter operates safely.
 Inspections prior to using your power
scooter:
1. If equipped with pneumatic tyres, please
check for the tyres are inflated to the correct
pressure.
2. Please check all electrical connections and
make sure they are tight and not corroded.
3. Please check all harness connections and
make sure they are secured properly.
4. Please check the brakes.
 Weight limitation.
1. Do not exceed the weight capacity stated in
the Specification section. Exceeding the
weight capacity voids your warranty. Drive
will not be held responsible for injuries or
property damage resulting from failure to
observe weight limitations.
2. Do not carry passengers on scooters.
Carrying passengers on scooter may affect
the centre of gravity, resulting in a tip or a fall.
 Tyre inflation
1. If your scooter is equipped with pneumatic
tyres, check the tyre pressure every week.
2. The correct tyre pressure will prolong the
Royale By Drive Owner’s Handbook (Royale_IFU 06/12)
3.
life of your tyres and ensure a smooth ride.
Do not under-inflate or over-inflate your
tyres. It is critically important that tyre
pressure is maintained between 25 – 30 psi
(2.0 – 2.4 bar).
 Temperature
1. Some of the parts of the power scooter are
susceptible to change in temperature. The
controller can only operate in temperature
that ranges between -25ºC ~ 50ºC.
2. At extreme low temperatures, the batteries
may freeze, and your scooter may not be
able to operate. In extreme high
temperatures, it may operate at slower
speeds due to a safety feature of the
controller that prevents damage to the
motors and other electrical components.
ELECTROMAGNETIC INTERFERENCE
The rapid development of electronics, especially
in the area of communications, has saturated
our environment with electromagnetic (EM)
radio waves that are emitted by television, radio
and communication signals. These EM wave are
invisible and their strength increases as one
approaches the source. All electrical conductors
act as antennas to the EM signals and, to
varying degrees, all power wheelchairs and
scooters are susceptible to electromagnetic
interference (EMI). The interference could result
in abnormal, unintentional movement and/or
erratic control of the vehicle. Power scooters
may be susceptible to electromagnetic
interference (EMI), which is interfering
electromagnetic energy emitted from sources
such as radio stations, TV stations, amateur
radio (HAM) transmitters, two-way radios,
cellular phones and alarm systems. The
interference (from radio wave sources) can
cause the power scooter to release its brakes,
Page 3
move by itself or move in unintended directions.
It can also permanently damage the powered
scooter’s control system. The intensity of the EM
energy can be measured in volts per meter
(V/m).Each powered scooter can resist EMI up
to a certain intensity. This is called “immunity
level”. The higher the immunity level the greater
the protection. At this time, current technology is
capable of providing at least 20 V/m of
immunity level, which would provide useful
protection against common sources of radiated
EMI.
Following the warnings listed below should
reduce the chance of unintended brake release
or powered scooter movement that could result
in serious injury:
1.
Do not turn on hand-held personal
communication devices such as citizens
band (CB) radios and cellular phones while
the powered scooter is turned on.
2.
Be aware of nearby transmitters such as
radio or TV stations and try to avoid
coming close to them.
3.
If unintended movement or brake release
occurs, turn the powered scooter off as
soon as it is safe.
4.
Be aware that adding accessories or
components, or modifying the powered
scooter, may make it more susceptible to
interference from radio wave sources
(Note: It is difficult to evaluate the effect on
the overall immunity of the powered
scooter).
5.
Report all incidents of unintended
movement or brake release to the powered
scooter manufacturer, and note whether
there is a radio wave source nearby.
Royale By Drive Owner’s Handbook (Royale_IFU 06/12)
TURN OFF YOUR POWERED SCOOTER AS
SOON AS POSSIBLE IF YOU EXPERIENCE
THE FOLLOWING:
 Unintentional scooter movements
 Unintended or uncontrollable
direction.
 Unexpected brake release
The higher the immunity level the greater the
protection. Your powered scooter has an
immunity level of 20 V/m which should protect
against common sources of EMI. Warning: The
scooter itself can disturb the performance of the
electromagnetic fields such as emitted by an
alarm system

SCOOTER MAINTENANCE
Your power scooter is designed for minimal
maintenance. However, like any motorized vehicle it
requires routine maintenance. To keep your scooter
for years of trouble-free operation, we recommend
you follow the following maintenance checks as
scheduled.
Warning! Failure to maintain the brushes could
void the power scooter warranty.
To inspect or replace the motor brushes:
1.
Unscrew the motor brush caps (by using
a screwdriver on the caps shown by the
white arrow).
2.
Remove the brushes.
3.
Inspect the brushes for wear (replace if
less than 9mm)
4.
Replace the brushes if necessary.
DAILY CHECKS
1.
Visual check on the conditions of tyres.
2.
Inspect the battery gauge on the display to
determine if batteries need to be charged.
WEEKLY CHECKS
Your scooter comes with standard pneumatic tyres.
Make sure to maintain the pressure of the tires
between 30-35 psi.
Less than 9mm
MONTHLY CHECKS
Visually inspect the controller harnesses. Make sure
that they are not frayed, cut or have any exposed
wires.
SEMI-ANNUAL CHECKS
Check the motor brushes. We recommended
that your authorized dealer inspect the brushes
every six months or sooner if your power scooter
is not operating smoothly. If inspection
determines excessive wear on the brushes, they
must be replaced or motor damage will result.
The brushes should be inspected for wear and
colour of the braiding inside the spring. If the
braiding is dark brown, red, silver, purple or gold
then the brush needs replacing.
Royale By Drive Owner’s Handbook (Royale_IFU 06/12)
Inspect the state of the battery terminals every
six months. Make sure that they are not
corroded and the connections are tight.
Periodically apply a thin film of petroleum jelly
on the surface of terminals to guard against
corrosion.
CHECKS:

Make sure you keep the controller clean
whilst protecting it from rain or water.
Never hose off your scooter or place it in
direct contact with water.
Page 11

Keep wheels free from lint, hair, sand and
carpet fibres.

Visually inspect the tyre tread. If less than
1mm (1/32”), please have your tyres
replaced by your local dealer.

All upholstery can be washed with warm
water and mild soap. Occasionally check
the seat and back for sagging, cuts and
tears. Replace if necessary. Do not store
your scooter in damp or humid conditions
as this will lead to mildew and rapid
deterioration of the upholstery parts.
Royale By Drive Owner’s Handbook (Royale_IFU 06/12)

All moving mechanisms will benefit from
simple lubrication and inspection. Lubricate
using petroleum jelly or light oil. Do not use
too much oil, otherwise small drips could
stain and damage carpets and furnishings
etc. Always perform a general inspection of
the tightness of all nuts and bolts.
ANNUAL SERVICE
We recommend the scooter is servicing by
annually by your dealer or competent
technician. Service schedules are available from
Drive Medical.
