Default Trike sidelights

Hi guys
Older members may remember me from some years back!
Still building a GL1000 trike, want to know, is parking light an mot issue?
I mean leaving the park lights on when parked at night

I am also behind on hazards, I take it they are now a requirement? I have indicators so it should be possible to go from there...

All replies welcome, thanks
Barry

Hi sorry for the delayed answer. If you're buiding the trike do you need MSVA?

Simple stuff first, you need hazards for MoT and MSVA. They have to work with the ignition on and off.

Parking lights, what exactly do you mean ?

You have to have position lights ie front & rear side lights operatd by one switch and have a tell tale visible to the driver. This can be the speedo illumination. However they dont need to work with the key removed so don't in law qualify as "parking lights". Which are not compulsory. Parking lights only turn up in Construction and use regs where you have to have them on if you park on an unlit road at night.

Hope that helps

Hi again Harry, nice to see u again. You have answered both questions thanks.
As for needing MSVA, in a phone call to DVLA a nice man told me that as I was modifying a bike to accommodate a disabled rider the MVSA test wasn't required.
I have anyway built the trike to MSVA rules, interpreted with your frequent help. So if that nice man was wrong things should still get sorted out. Trike now almost ready to run the motor, dead for 16 years. You should hear it start anywhere in the UK. I would post a pic but somehow I can't make that work from an iPad. Am I alone, or just a lonely twit?
