What you need to know about Trikes 

Prefer three wheels to two? Well a trike can offer you the extra safety and stability you need as a rider without opting for four wheels. Trikes are classed as a three-wheeler with open chassis and handlebars, unlike the popular Reliant Robin which is deemed as a three-wheeler car due to the closed chassis and steering wheel.

If you’re one for standing out in the crowd, then you’ll certainly have all eyes on you and your trike. It’s not compulsory by law to wear a helmet when riding your trike but it’s highly recommended that you do for your own personal safety. The view is similar for the installation and use of seat belts too.

Car or bike licence?

So what licence do you need to ride a trike? Well, it all depends when you got your licence.

  • Full car licence or full motorbike licence between October 2000 – January 2013, you can ride or drive any three-wheeler with any engine size.
  • Before October 2000? You only need a full car licence.
  • After January 2013? You will need a full category A motorcycle licence to operate any three-wheel vehicle.
