  • KWTK......your licence...

    This is prolly a really stupid question, but I've always wanted to know. We all know you need an R class to ride unrestricted on a bike. However, by looking at the back of your licence, next to C class it says you can drive ANY motor vehicle up to and including 4.5T equipped to carry up to and including 12 people. I'm prolly wrong, but the way I see it a motor cycle is a motor vehicle, and the word ANY to me implies just that. Could you argue that your licence states you can drive/ride any vehicle, is there a loop hole?

      If vehicle is latin for "rides within" and cycle is "rides upon" then no.

      Good eye you got there though.

          Mine has 2 sections.

          C Motor vehicle =< 4.5t gvm, equipped for =< 12 persons
          R Motor cycle

          And nowhere does it say ANY.

            ROAD TRAFFIC ACT 1974 - SECT 5 Definitions - here is the road traffic act, under section 5, definitions, there is no specific exclusion of motor cycles, however I would doubt very much that this would fly. worth a test though, so please, by all means, go ride a 1000cc bike around a cop shop til they pull you over... and let us know

                “vehicle” includes —
                (a) every conveyance, not being a train, vessel or aircraft, and every object capable of being propelled or drawn, on wheels or tracks, by any means; and
                (b) where the context permits, an animal being driven or ridden;

                  mine doesnt say any. maybe they have updated it recently?

                  Also Taylor, your latin is shit. Vehiculum = vehicle/conveyance, and there is no equivalent of 'cycle'.

                          I'm holding 3 of my consecutive license cards here, they all say "any motor vehicle". :s

                          It does say that detail as an explanation of the class though.

                              As a general rule, the better it felt when you said it, the more trouble it's going to get you into.

                              'Soul' - Italian word for unreliability.
