Obtaining a Licence

Driving a 3-Wheel Vehicle

To be authorized to drive a 3-wheel T-Rex- or Slingshot-type vehicle, you must hold a valid Class 5 licence. You do not need to hold a motorcycle licence to drive this type of vehicle.

A 3-wheel T-Rex- or Slingshot-type vehicle must be registered as a regular 2 or 3-wheel motorcycle with an engine capacity of 401 cc or more.

Wearing a helmet that meets safety standards, with a visor or protective goggles, is mandatory.

This type of vehicle must be equipped with:

  • seat belts
  • windshield wipers, if the vehicle has a windshield
  • headrests
  • rearview mirrors

The T-Rex and the Slingshot are both 3-wheel, motorcycle-like vehicles equipped with seats that the occupants sit in instead of straddling. They also have a structure that partially or completely encloses the occupants (what encloses the occupants is more than simply the part of the vehicle in front of the driver and the seat backrest).
