Please note: Many UK scooters come with Datatag as standard from new or may have had the system fitted by a previous keeper. Please check that your scooter does not already have a system fitted before buying a new one. To check if your bike is fitted with a Datatag system, please call our contact center on 0345 070 0440.
During the last few years scooter sales have increased massively as more and more people have grown tired of sitting in their cars in traffic jams, or got fed up waiting for expensive and unreliable public transport.
Unfortunately this boom in scooter sales has been accompanied by a dramatic increase in the theft of scooters. Physical security devices can help protect your scooter to an extent, but professional thieves are not always deterred by locks and alarms. Given that scooters are relatively light they can be lifted into the back of a van and taken away in seconds - and we mean seconds!
The best way to prevent your scooter being stolen in the first place is to have Datatag fitted when you buy the machine. Datatag has a fantastic success rate, and criminals are well aware that the CPS has never lost a court case in which Datatag has been used in evidence. As soon as thieves see the Datatag warning decals on your scooter they will usually leave it well alone and go looking for an easier target.
There are no annual fees when fitting Datatag and when you come to sell your scooter you’ll find that the Datatag registration can be transferred to the new owner.
