Lawn mower

If I have a petrol powered lawn mower and take it along the road to a neighbours house do I need to be in possession of a current driving licence or is this just an urban myth ?

Re: Lawn mower

Hay if he cheats he should fall on his sward. If he rides on the vehicle along a road it needs to be registered, there are some exceptions if the powered vehicle only crosses the road between two buildings owned by the same person/company.

Edit: He wouldn't have to pay the London LEZ (Low Emission Zone) charge as a mower; indeed even Combine Harvesters are exempt from the LEZ charge in London.

Re: Lawn mower

Buy a nice flash mower.
If you can't afford it you could always get a loam.
