Essentially a Reliant 3-wheeler with a wedge of cheese body and inflated price tag.
VRT same as motorcycles (vintage 30+ year rate = €0). Motor tax as per motorcycle. Not periodically tested like motorcycles. Toll free M50 / East link like motorcycles. Driving licence category A (used to be covered under B, but not any more - watch out kids)
Tricycle: Where a person had an entitlement to the category B full licence prior to 19 January 2013 that also covered them to ride tricycles. They still retain that entitlement. All first full Licences issued for the category B from 19 January 2013 would not have this entitlement and therefore they must take out the appropriate Bike category to ride a trike. The appropriate bike category will depend on the CC of the Tricycle.
e.g. If you had full B entitlement prior 19/01/2013, a new licence should show this as "grandfather rights" under category A (79.03) = full A entitlement restricted to tricycles
Yes, I am a Reliant botherer.
