Our farm quad is road legal and agricultural registered. Insurance is around £150 with the NFU and covers any driver with permission, but expect that to be considerably higher if you register the quad as PLG (can go any distance at any time) instead of agricultural (can't go more than three miles from the farm and can't go out at night).

For what it's worth, they're quite shocking on the road. Sports quads are better than agricultural quads on the tarmac, but they still don't handle all that well. I think you'll soon get bored unless you have access to farm land to use it on...

Saw an episode of Fith gear where one of the presenters tested a Quad on the road and concluded it was rubbish on the road. He had lean an awful lot to get it to turn corners, especially roundabouts.

Link to video here. I have the exact same quad as he was testing in the video. Whilst he's vastly exaggerating the amount you have to lean to get it round corners, he's right in the sense that they do feel very vague on road and are hard to turn (especially when on off-road tyres).

They're incredibly fun if you've got farmland to play around on, but they're pointless for road only use. Plus, every time I venture out on the road to fill ours with petrol, you feel like an utter cretin. I've taken to using jerry cans instead!

Whhyyyy would you? Its all the disadvantages of a car (traffic jams) with the disadvantages of a bike (open to the weather, low load carrying capacity) and the advantages of neither.

Do job properly and get either a bike or a car. Quads are great for rounding up cattle or sheep, when a car would be too big and cumbersome and a bike would be very difficult on the terrain, but they are useless on the road.
