Thats right, provisional car or bike, you can ride any trike, if it has 2 seats your suposed to carry someone with a full licence, but 1 seat you can just ride on Ls.

I'm reasonably certain on this anyway

Might be cheaper and easier to put her through her test, about 500 for direct access.... loads easier from an insurance perspective too.

Just a thought, that way she can ride whatever she wants (hide your keys!)

i wouldnt build a 125 trike personally. i just dont think it would have enough poke to be fun to ride although it would probably look ace

either get a car license or a bike license and your sorted though

The hassle and cost of building a trike would far outweigh those of shoving her thru her test i reckon.

yup, a lot of work for not a lot of result... although it would probably be unusual enough to win a few "best trike" prizes.

PS I've sometimes thought (when I forget I'm not an engineer) that an ATV quad front end on a scooter rear end wouldn't be that hard to whip up... you don't see "Bubble-car" format trikes anymore
