Reliant Robin driving licence?

#1 Postby matty6660 » Fri Apr 30, 2010 5:04 pm

I have heard that you can drive a Reliant Robin on just a provisional with noone else in the car. Is this right? Have researched it on internet but seem to get contradictions. What requirements are there to drive the three wheeler?

Thanks :stupid:

Three wheeled vehicles can fall within category B or B1.

If the vehicle has 3 or 4 wheels and weighs more than 550kgs unladen it will fall within category B.
Vehicles which weigh less than 550kgs will fall within category B1.

I should point out that a provisional category B licence also gives provisional entitlement for category B1. Provisional licence holders are of course subject to the provisional licence conditions, e.g. displaying L plates and being supervised.

There is an exemption from the need to be supervised by a qualified driver when driving a vehicle included in category B1 which is constructed to carry only one person and not adapted to carry more than one person

it used to be,, you could drive a 3 wheeled car on a bike licence providing the reverse gear was blanked off,,,
in effect bringing it in line as a bike & sidecar
It's not about,, IF or HOW,

Given the choice, why would you want to drive one of these?
