Removable steering wheel for IVA? What am I missing?

Hi gents,

I have read that you cant IVA a car with a removable steering wheel? Is this correct? If yes how do ariel/caterham and the likes get away with fitting them on road legal cars?

Also say for arguments sake I was to leave the removable boss fitted but disable it by cross pinning would that pass?

Where are you getting info that you can't have removable wheel from?

I've certainly SVA'd a car with removable wheel & I'm sure a no. of peeps on here will have done so at IVA unless anything has changed in recent years that I've missed???

As above, i dont know of any reason you cant have one. Providing its of sound construction etc..
Are you confusing the part that says a removable wheel is not a suitable immobiliser?

As above, mine passed fine with a removable wheel, only thing i did do make a pad to go on the cerntre of the steering wheel just to make sure i wouldn't get pulled for any 'sharp' edges.

Nothing in the manual that says you cant use a removable wheel setup. Only issue you might run into is if you use a cheap/low quality boss that has play in it they could fail the car because of the play.

My car passed iva with a removable wheel, I even showed the inspector how to remove it to make it easier for him to get in and out.
