What license for a bike with a sidecar?
« on: June 19, 2020, 07:39:33 pm »
I was renewing my licence today and noticed on the form there are no category for a bike with a sidecar, only for bikes without a sidecar. I asked the medam behind the counter and she looked at me like a cow is looking at a new gate...no clue what I was talking about. Just wondering who will operate all those Juju bikes in WC with the covid sidecar....

You ride it with a normal bike licence. The bike however gets registered on ENatis as bike WITH sidecar :thumleft:

Bikes, trikes, quads and sidecars all are one license.
Code A is any size motorcycle.
A1 is a motorcycle up to 125cc

And that is really strange because dont think that because you are able to ride a bike you are also able to ride a sidecar

Build a sidecar they said. It will be fun they said. Ja-nee !

so you have to re register the bike after you put the sidecar on?
