MSVA 3 wheeler info needed

Ok, I'm well up on IVA for 4 wheelers, but considering a 3 wheeler (reverse trike) project, to save me reading the entire MSVA manual (much of which must be similar to IVA?), a few quick Q's

Does it have to meet a minimum weight requirement

Is there any requirement for reverse gear?

Same Q for handbrake - I'm assuming it is, I assume has to be mechanical?

What are the differences between bodied & unbodied treatment at MSVA test - I'm assuming if you attend with an unbodied vehicle you don't have the same daft radius requirements that IVA has? & also assume a body could be added at a later date once registered?

If bodied does the test have min radius requirements?

Seat belts? I'm thinking along the lines of a Morgan style vehicle - & if a requirement do they have similar min height requirement for mounting

Similar collapsible column requirement to IVA?

If bodied & with a screen does it have requirement for wiper & demist?

Can a reverse trike have a single headlight or are 2 a must?

Do wheel arches (mudguards) have to meet a minimum coverage? (no. of degrees of wheel covered)

All info much welcomed!





Furore Formula Car - the only two seater modern Formula Car lookalike. I no longer run Furore Products or Furore Cars Ltd, but would still highly recommend them for Acewell dashes, projector headlights, dominator headlights, indicators, mirrors etc, best prices in the UK! Take a look at http://www.furoreproducts.co.uk/ or find more parts on Ebay, user names furoreltd & furoreproducts, discounts available for LCB users.
Don't forget Stainless Steel Braided brake hoses, made to your exact requirements in any of around 16 colours. http://shop.ebay.co.uk/furoreproducts/m.html?_dmd=1&_ipg=50&_sop=12&_rdc=1

No, just a maximum weight of 1000kg.

Yes, unless it's wider than 1700mm, then it needs 2 headlights. It can have 1 position lamp if narrower than 1300mm, wider needs 2.
