Putting the Joyrider on the Road
If you want to put your Joyrider buggy on the road you will need to put the buggy through an IVA test, (this is a goverment run test that checks all kit Cars are road worthy). There are IVA centres all over the country where you can take your buggy. Once your buggy is built and running you will need to fill out the necessary paperwork and book your buggy in for the IVA test. The test fee is about £450. The test centre will look over the vehicle and make a list of any modifications required, which once rectified the vehicle can be returned for a re-test and then passed for road use.

To make this process eaiser we have made a road legal kit for the buggy to help with the IVA test. This kit includes the main items required for IVA including light kit, mirrors, mudguards etc. Blitzworld also offer an IVA testing service, where we will get your buggy through IVA on your behalf and do any modifications required by the test station.

Once the buggy has passed the IVA, it will go for a MOT, and then it can be registered, taxed & insured. It will be issued with a new plate if all components are new (you are allowed one second hand part - usually the engine) or on an age related plate is issued. It is a good idea to keep the registration documents to the donor engine used.

IVA test costs about £450, then NO MOT for 3 years
Fully Comprehensive Insurance (using Punto 1.2 engine) is about £160
Road Tax (12 months) cost about £120.00

Building the Joyrider Sport - What's required

Due to the popularity of the NEW Joyrider Sport and TV work we have updated the build kit to suit the different engines available.
To build the Joyrider you can now just simply supply Blitzworld with an engine and components i.e. (engine, gearbox, fuel pump, radiator, expansion bottle, and battery) and we will fit and mount them to the chassis and connect up the drive shafts. Alternativley if you dont fancy stripping a donor car, you can get the donor car dropped off at Blitzworld and we will strip the car for you (there is a charge for donor car dismantling).

Frequently asked Questions

Is the price shown at the top of the webpage the complete price of the buggy?

Can I buy the buggy already built and read for the road ?
Yes, Blitzworld are currently custom build Joyrider buggies to order with virtually any engine, bike or car.

Can you fit a bike engine ?
Yes, due to the configuration of the chassis it lends its self well to take any engine including a motor bike engine.

Is the Joyrider buggy road legal ?
Yes the Joyrider is road legal, but you have to hold a current car driving licence to drive it on the public highways including motorways.

Do I have to buy a donor car?
No, due to the NEW rolling chassis kit, the donor parts are included in this initial price.

Do you have to have a licence to drive the buggy off road?
No, for off road use you do not have to have a licence. If you want to drive on green lanes around the country you do have to have a licence and the buggy needs to be road legal.

How safe is the buggy on & off road ?
Due to the wide selection of engines available for the buggy we have made the Joyrider from CDS tube making the chassis roll cage very strong. The buggy design offers the driver and passenger a complete roll cage with a front and rear crumple zones. Also driver air bag options are available.

Does the buggy have to go through SVA / IVA ?
Yes, the buggy has to go through the government approved SVA (single vehicle approval) New test IVA, testing which affects most kit cars on the road today. The test costs about £450 and once passed the vehicle does not require a MOT for 3 years.

Can I build some of the buggy myself and Blitzworld to complete the build ?
Yes, you can take the build to any stage and we can complete the remainder of the buggy build to Off or road legal status if as required, helping to keep costs to a minimum.

Do you have to put the buggy on a trailer to take it to a track day?
No, due to the light weight of the buggy, we can supply a tow hitch that bolts under the front of the buggy lifting the front wheels off the ground, and then the buggy can be towed like a trailer. If you register your buggy as road legal you can then drive the buggy to and from the track day events.
