    Licence requirements for Trikes. (Sorry, no trike section)

    A quick question.
    A friend has hip problems, and although not wanting to go down the disabled route, is keen to possibly ride a trike.
    What are the licencing requirements? Can a car licence be used for certain trike set-ups?
    Any info will be gratefully received.

    Timpo.

    "The basics are if you have a full Motorcycle licence (Cat A) or a full car licence that proceeds 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. "

    That's the relevant bit for licencing.
