Driving a chassis cab on the road?

Recommended Posts

Quick question,

 

I will need to drive tubless 110 a short ish distance of about 20 miles. Its just chassis cab currently, or will be after the weekend.

 

Am i right in thinking that if i make up some mudguards to contain the rear wheels and stick a number plate board on the rear im ok as far as plod go?

 

Will be a stretch of A roads hence me asking :thumbup1:

I drove a chassis cab merc lorry from Nottingham to Harwich, crossed to NL on the ferry, then across the Netherlands to Germany.

 

Saw quite a few police, had customs check at both ends and all was fine.

 

Don't know if its technically legal though...

And spray suppression. I drive chassis cabs all time under test.

Lights, number plate, mudguards, and no sharp edges or obtrusions from body work.

Hope this helps

About the mud guards/ wings, If its going to have bodywork built on the chassis, in the c&u regs, there is an exception for - unfinished vehicles or trailers proceeding for completion.

 

I`ll try and find a link for you
