Need some information on some cars please

I am tryimg to persuade my father in law to change his vehicle. Problem is, he only has a motorcycle license, and although he hasnt ridden in years, he chugs (very appropriate word, chugs) around in a reliant robin. He keeps saying he's too old to take his car test, but isnt there some small micro type 4 wheelers that you can drive on a bike license? I'm sure I heard someone mention them, but I cant think of any. Does anyone know of any? Preferably with a link. Better yet some personal knowledge of any? Preferably with more than 2 seats, but anything can be considered.

You only need a bike license to drive these.

One problem with the micro type vehicles is that they don't offer the same level of protection to occupants in the event of an accident.

Just something to remember...:-)

Has he considered trying to pass his car test in an automatic?

If he already has the road experience it shouldn't be too much work to learn to drive an automatic. I would imagine they are very similar to the bike engine cars to drive, just with much more power.

Stuartli-Ever see a reliant thats had more than a glancing blow?

[email protected] would be an ideal solution. However, for him at least there is a percieved matter of pride, especially if he were to fail. Ditto going to a driving school. Or, to look at it another way, he's being a stubborn sod. So we are looking at alternatives.

I'm used to stepping into it... a trait from school I've always had... to old to change!
