Hi. I have a dragstar xvs650 trike with a BMW back axle with independent suspension. I have a full car licence dating back to the stone age. Ive had my trike over a year n have insurance but reading your forum im confused. Am i legal??. When my partner rides and i pillion i have trouble staying on round corners due to a dodgy leg following an accident. Im trying to source arm rests to keep me on that will fit my sissy bar. Any suggestions please x

Hello and welcome to the forum...

The rules governing licences has changed in the last few years so be careful who you listen to. To help others help you, is your car licence for a manual or automatic car? And is your trike manual or automatic??

I used to ride my manual trike with my automatic car licence which turned out to be a big no no. I took my B1 test to resolve this little matter and all was well with the world again.

Hope you get a decent answer, any doubts, call the office.

No pain, no shame

The Trike Shop are pretty good on trike law, their website currently says

The basics are if you have a full Motorcycle licence (Cat A) or a full car licence that preceeds 19/01/2013, (Cat B1 on your licence) then basically you can ride a Trike.* If you do not have either of these then you need to complete a UK motorcycle C.B.T, theory test and full motorcycle test. Unless you are a disabled rider. They are the only people who are allowed to take a Trike C.B.T and Tricycle test.

More here...

They are also very good if you email them with a query about anything that's changed, or anything you don't understand, and they will chase up the info if they haven't got it.

Old age ain't no place for cissies!
