If you are not charging at home, you can top up at a charging point. First of all, you need to get your hands on one of these:
Most charge points in Scotland will activate with a Charge Place Scotland card.
Drive up to an available charge point – find one on our map here.
The charge point will either have a socket to plug your cable into or cables to plug into your car. Park your car appropriately and plug your car in.
Hold your card up to the ‘scan’ icon (and press start if there is a button) to begin the power flow to charge your car.
There will be an indication that your car is charging.
To finish charging, hold your card up to the contactless point to end the power flow.
Unplug your car and always tidy cables away as you found them to prevent damage.
Visit the contact us page to report a problem with a charge point or if you need further guidance on charging.
