What is a Quadricycle?

Under EEC Directive 92/61/EC (superseded to 2002/24/EC) a new vehicle category was created. Quadricycles are defined as having a maximum unladen mass of 400 Kg and with a maximum power of 15KW. Quadzilla® machines are specifically designed and manufactured to meet the above legislation.  

Can I convert my off road ATV for the road?

In Brief no, to adhere to the European Whole Vehicle Legislation the vehicle must be homologated at manufacturer or importer level.  Other registrations routes are possible such as “Light Agricultural Vehicle” or “Limited use” but these methods have restrictions and are intended for legitimate use in Agricultural, Horticultural or Forestry applications.

What licence is needed to drive a road legal Quadricycle or Buggy?

A full UK car license, or a full Motorcycle License if granted before Feb 2001. The actual category required is B1.  Under no circumstances should people under 16 years of age operate a Quadzilla Road Legal vehicle.

Do I need to wear a helmet?

Classed as PLG (Private light goods) there is no legal requirement, but we strongly recommend that both driver and passenger always wear a suitable approved head and eye protection. It's critical your helmet fits you (this may seem obvious but you will be surprised…). In a crash your helmet could well be a lifesaver, so you should spend time sizing it up. Make sure that when the strap is done up, the helmet cannot move in any direction but it isn't so tight, you lose all the feelings in your ears. Ensure the lid is approved to United Nations Standard ECE 22.05, Quadzilla® Off road style helmets are also ACU Gold approved to allow you to use them in off road competitions sanctioned by the ACU. Never buy a second hand helmet, as you never know its history.

Do I need any other riding gear?

In addition to head and eye protection we strongly recommend suitable boots, clothing and gloves similar to those used by an experienced motorcyclist.

Can I ride a 50cc Quadricycle as a moped?

Unfortunately not, unlike the rest of Europe the UK do not recognise a four wheeled moped.
