Specialist Insurers for three-wheeled scooters
It is fair to say three-wheel scooters such as the Yamaha Tricity are becoming a more common sight on UK roads. Three-wheel scooters generally offer great comfort, high spec, and potential safer riding along with the bonus that most can be ridden on a full car licence*. It is these benefits amongst many others that are seeing more and more commuters ditching public transport and other transport methods in favour of the freedom of a three-wheel scooter.
Due to our specialist insurance rates for three-wheelers, we are the preferred insurance provider for many in the UK.

Yamaha Tricity 125cc and 300cc
Yamaha has two Tricity models currently available, the 125cc version and the all-new 300cc version. Now it is important to note the 125cc version (currently) is classed as a scooter and can’t be ridden on a car licence. To ride the Tricity 125 you’d need to have an active CBT (Compulsory Basic Training) certificate. The new Tricity 300 though, is classed as a trike and can be ridden on a full B car licence*.

Ride on a car licence
Three-wheel scooters and motorcycles are fast becoming a popular commuting alternative not just confined to large cities. With great looks, 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 Yamaha Tricity 300 and other three-wheel scooters 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. While legally the Tricity 300 and some other three-wheelers can be ridden on a car licence, though 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.
