Owning a Pocketbike - Legal

What is the recommended age for pocket bikes?

Pocket bikes have no age restriction.

We have riders from as young as 4 all the way to adults in their late 50s. This is the beauty of pocket bikes; all ages male and female can enjoy them.

What is the weight restriction for pocket bikes?

There are no weight restrictions for pocket bikes. They have no shock absorbers so it evenly distributes the rider’s weight through the frame. However, the heavier riders will achieve less performance.

Mini quad bikes and mini dirt bikes have a recommended weight limit of 70kg. They have front and rear shock absorbers so heavy riders will apply an additional strain on wearing parts.

What kind of protective gear do I need? 

You should invest in an approved helmet, shoulder and knee pads, a full body race suit and proper race shoes.

Without proper protection an incident at 50 km/h will leave you with nasty injuries. NEVER ride without a helmet and protective clothing. Be wise and be SAFE!

Do I need a license for a pocket bike?

No.

Can I ride my pocket bike on public roads?

No.
