Thread: AGRICULTURAL-PLG

  1. #1

    Default AGRICULTURAL-PLG

    ok then here goes, ive been riding off road for years but "on road" never really interested me as i have usually have 1000cc race reps for the summer so im not quite up on it. ive been offered a raptor 660 thats registered as agricultural and ive heard about some weird restrictions on these but never seen any in black and white. could any one tell me about any of these before i buy? and how difficult/expensive would it be to change from AGRI to PLG? thanks in advance for any info lads

    ask the DVLA to change classification for you to PLG Class 4 as you have been going further than your 3 mile (or whatever it is) limited use. Or even better get the owner to do it before you buy it because it's already registered to him.
    Might be an admin fee plus £120 road tax for 1 year (WHAT ! how much?)

    yep I agree. my mate is on his way now to collect a quad that has been changed from agri to plg. so, he won't have the hassle even if there is any.

    Nobody is correct so far, like I said, got to your local DVLA office and ask them, they will give you the correct answer...
    yip your right, go to dvla like i did get hold of some one that knows what they are on about and if you do not need to go on a motorway then agri is best, no mot, no fee for tax
