Which driving licence do you need for driving a quad?

Quads come in many shapes and sizes. You may need different driving licences for the different variants. Which licence do you need for which quad?

It is compulsory to take out quad insurance. A condition for the insurance cover is that the driver is authorised to drive the quad. This sometimes requires some extra research, because some quads can be driven with a moped driving licence, but for other quads you need a B driving licence or sometimes even a C driving licence. Find out before you drive the quad. Otherwise you run the risk of a fine, but in the event of an accident you have an even bigger problem. The quad insurance will not pay out if the driver was not an authorised driver during the accident.

A three-wheeled quad bike. Which driving licence do you need?

According to the website of the government, you must be at least 18 years old and have a B driving licence to use this quad. The vehicle must have a registration number, but that also applies to the other quads.

Your quad is approved as a car

If the vehicle is considered to be a passenger car, the requirements that are usual for a car also apply. You must therefore have a B driving licence and wear a safety belt when driving. The minimum age for this quad is 18 years.

A quad bike can also be used as a company car

The same requirements apply to this quad as to the vehicle approved as a passenger car. But there may be an additional requirement that you must be in possession of driving licence C.

What if the quad is not approved for public roads?

There are also quads that you are only allowed to use on your own property, for example for working in the fields. These probably do not have a licence plate and are therefore not allowed on public roads. Do not do this either, because in the event of an accident, there is no insurer who will bear the costs.

Not all insurers provide quad insurance, but there are several parties that fortunately offer such insurance. By entering the license plate number and answering a few questions, you can compare multiple quad insurance policies at Alpina.nl.
