At the moment it's electronic gear change and K lever linked braking system on handlebars but, they are going to put the brakes on the floor & the clutch on the right with the buttons for the gears.
This should free up the left grip for just the indicators, lights etc..
It's a 57 plate with 16K - one owner who was in a wheelchair, he's really looked after it though.

Well that dream was short lived, rang the first insurance company for a quote & they won't insure the trike if kept in a garage away from my house, might go to the company who insured the Triumph as they didn't have a problem with that.

Getting f**ked off with this now, can't even get a trike without having to take a TRIKE test now, new rules from 2013 even if your disabled & you have a full automatic driving licence.
My licence states Cat B, BE, D1, D1E

Really pi$$ed off :frown2:

Oh well back to mini's then :grin2:

Chuffs I think you're wrong, Read Here.
- The NABD
Second paragraph "Grandad rights". >:)
And this from same site
On April 10th 2014, a new piece of UK legislation came into effect which allows any person over the age of 21 who holds a full Category B (car) licence (irrespective of disabilities or what year they passed the full Category B test) to ride any size of trike within UK territory.

NB. It should be stressed that this legislation is only valid within UK territories. Elsewhere in Europe the 3rd Directive rules apply as originally implemented on 19/01/2013.

I was going to say have a word with nabd, they will even help disabled riders with the cost of conversions, let alone insurance.
They helped an old friend of mine (sadly deceased now due to cancer) no end with his trike.

Timmie has said it but Grandad rules apply on licences granted before date of legislation.
Category changes and allowances depend on your original issue.
It is important to check if got one of those new fangled photo things that they don't slip in a change when you renew.
Tried to do a guy I know for towing a caravan without relevant bit on his licence.
Charge died when it was accepted as a DVLA error.

Only thing I think you may need is the CBT training although whether this applies to trikes ??
Does on bikes, although I hold a provisional by virtue of passing car driving test, would still need to take the CBT AFAIK.

AFAIK It doesn't apply. One could drive (Reliant) or ride a Trike using either Licence. NABD are quite specific re B / B1 licence.
