I thought these were banned in Europe?? They were all over the island last week and although some tourists drive them with respect the majority with no hats and all over the show.
The general position (certainly in the UK) is that virtually no manufacturer has "type approval" which permits quads to be used as road vehicles. The main exception to this is the Canadian manufacturer Bombadier, which has obtained such approval.
Thus, here in the UK quads can only be registered for road use as agricultural or horticultural vehicles, unless an owner applies for Single Vehicle Approval (SVA)
It would be interesting to see how the Greeks have applied this EU legislation - maybe they are harvesting tourists

Thanks for that, I was under the impression that as I have had a driving licence since 1984, I was allowed to drive a moped/scooter up to 50cc. Best I look at my driving licence, an old green paper one as I have never updated it to a posh plastic card one as I don't drive.
