put kettle on, fire up PC, download the free MSVA manual from the VOSA site

work your way through, its not scarey, its not hard, trying to bypass it isnt clever

only print out the bits you need, go through and highlight the key parts with a highlighter pen, soon you realise that theres not really much to it

write to your local DVLA VRO and explain what you built and that it will be needing MSVA test, to do this you need a VIN number, they will send you a VIN number for your build, stamp this into the frame, somewhere easily visible.

book test, get it weighed, pass test, get MAC and head for VRO with form V55/5, insurance document , about 55 from memory and the payment for a tax disc

once done you get Q plate, no MOT for 3 years and your trike is properly registered and will have value, unlike the reliant regged ones on ebay that do have a value, but mainly scrap

see simples,


done it yet??

Wot Tony said.

If you need advice with MSVA I can help as that used to be my job.

Hi tony

I understand that if it is built specifically to suit a disabled rider then it is exempt from MSVA?

How does the process differ in this case?

yup if its built for someone registered disabled, with adaptions etc, then its exempt, just a case of MOT, inspection by DVLA, similar process as someone doing a swingarm " SPIT SPIT" conversion
