Default Reverse Gear Required for SVA


We are building a road going special quad bike that will have to go through the SVA test. The quad does not have a reverse gear will this be a problem for the SVA test???

No, no reverse gear is required for the SVA test.

This will change when the new IVA (individual vehicle approval) test comes in to replace the SVA, possibly next year but more likely in 2010/11.

From then all four wheeled vehicles will need a reverse gear, but there might be a weight exemption, 500kgs is being mentioned, so your quad should be exempt.

Get it finished while the SVA is in force, you won't have a problem!
