While some riders of three-wheeled vehicles are having problems getting their vehicles registered in Ohio (help is on the way), riders in South Carolina are about to need additional licensing. There seems to be some sort of waiver available for riders who already rode a trike before this new law went into effect, but any new riders will need a specific endorsement on their licenses. There will be separate endorsements for vehicles with two wheels as well as vehicles sporting a third, which will likely include bikes with sidecars, trikes and reverse trikes, like the Piaggio MP3 and Can-Am Spyder.

Interestingly, this law is said to exclude "a tractor or automotive three-wheel vehicle." That sounds more than a little ambiguous to us, and we wonder how it will be interpreted as this law goes into effect. What about the Aptera? We're thinking that perhaps a steering wheel or a non-saddle seat may be required to pass as an "automotive three-wheel vehicle," but it would be best to check with the proper authorities in South Carolina to be sure.
