Good morning north Cyprus drivers

The bottom field on the front of my driving licence contains information as to the classes of vehicle(s) I am legally permitted to drive.

Is there information available online, or readily available elsewhere, where one can view the various vehicle classes to ensure one is legally entitled to drive a particular class of vehicle please?

This is important because should you be driving a vehicle of a class not permitted on your licence you are not therefore legally driving that vehicle. This will be checked should you be unfortunate enough to be involved in a RTA.

Failure to have the correct class of vehicle on your licence will most likely render you uninsured and very likely liable as the "guilty" party in a RTA scenario.

NB: Pertaining to KKTC driving licence.

I do know that you need a Tractor Licence to drive a quad bike here as they are classed as tractors, their original design purpose. Many people seem to have them but are not aware that they are breaking the law.
