Quadricycles can now be registered as private vehicle

Quadricycles can now be registered as private vehicle

- Quadricycle can be registered as a private vehicle

- Has to comply with crash test norms

- Reports claim that individuals aged 16 years and more will be allowed to drive 


The Ministry of Road Transport and Highways (MoRTH) has now added Quadricycle in the non-transport category, which means that it can be registered as a private vehicle. Earlier, the Quadricycle was allowed only for transport usage under the Motor Vehicle Act 1988. The vehicle with a four-wheel setup was initially developed as a safer alternative to the three-wheeler rickshaw in the country. 


The upcoming Bajaj Qute will be introduced in the entry level A-Segment as it measures 3.6-metres in length, powered by engine size lesser than 800cc and will not weigh more than 475kgs. Private registration of the Quadricycle will further help in easing the deteriorating traffic conditions in the city and makes it a good choice for intra-city trips. 


To ensure the safety of occupants, the Quadricycle has to comply with crash test safety norms. Moreover, the vehicle has to comply with the BS-VI emission norms and BNVSAP safety norms. Interestingly, reports claim that similar to automatic scooters, the Quadricycle can be driven by individuals aged 16 years and above.
