Trike Insurance FAQS
Can I ride a three-wheel scooter or motorcycle on a car licence in the UK?
Most three-wheelers can be ridden on a full car licence in the UK, however, this does not apply to all three-wheelers. For confirmation on the model you are looking at it is worth checking with your motorcycle dealer or manufacturer literature for licence requirements.
Do I need to wear a helmet when riding a three-wheeler?
Three-wheelers declared as a trike that can be ridden on a car licence, do not legally require a helmet to be worn when riding. However, it is strongly recommended by almost all in the motorcycle industry that you should wear a motorcycle helmet when riding a three-wheel scooter or motorcycle.
Are three-wheelers ULEZ exempt?
ULEZ exemption is based upon meeting emissions standards, this will be model specific. The best and easiest way to check is to use the Transport for London vehicle checker.

Three-Wheel Scooter Insurance
Tilting three-wheeled scooters have been popular since Piaggio first launched the MP3 in 2006. Though MP3s and other three-wheel scooters, such as the Yamaha Tricity and Peugeot Metropolis, are becoming common on the streets of the UK, getting insurance can still be tricky.
As a specialist scooter and motorcycle insurance broker, we work with our panel of insurers to offer insurance quotes on three-wheel scooters such as the Piaggio MP3s.
Ride on a Car licence
Three-wheel scooters and motorcycles are fast becoming a popular commuting alternative, not just confined to large cities, with nippy handling, luxury comfort and excellent fuel economy, they have big appeal.
Most three-wheel scooters, though sharing most characteristics with maxi-scooters, are actually classed as a trike and therefore allowed to be ridden on a car licence. It is this which makes the MP3 and other three-wheelers appeal so much to commuters and those wanting to taste the freedom of a scooter yet with the extra benefits and safety of a three-wheeler.
As Piaggio MP3s and some other three-wheelers can be ridden on a car licence as they are declared as a trike and not a scooter or motorcycle (make sure to check licence requirements on the model in question), getting insurance to cover this can sometimes be tricky. Here at Lexham we are able to provide insurance quotations for those riding on a car licence.
