Default Road registering a motorbike

Hi,

I keep seeing quads bikes and buggies and things with unusual looking red and white number plates and I wonder if they are a result of road registering a vehicle that wasn't necessarily intended for the road.

The reason I ask is that I have a motor cross bike that has never been registered but I wonder now if it would be possible to do so. If it is possible how much would it cost, would I need to fit lights and a horn etc, what documentation would I need to provide? This would be done for my own use and not as a profit making exercise.

The reason for different plates is due to class of vehicle. Some will be classed the same as mopeds some as motorbikes.

I think the red on white plates are for agricultural vehicles.

There are a few quads around here in the campo with these plates.

Also I think some motorised machinery such as dumpers and JCBs have similar plates.

A Harley is certainly agrigultural and could easily be mistaken for a dumper truck.

You would have to have an engineers report ,equivilant of an SVA test etc etc , not worth it sadly . Red plates are for plant and agricultral vehicles. quads on a red plate are restricted to 45 kmh and cant go on motorways etc.

Oh well, I suppose that was wishful thinking.
