b/ Wheels must be symmetrical to each other by the vehicle's horizontal median plane.

c/ The vehicle's largest dimensions must not exceed 2.5 m in length, 1.2 m in width and 1.4 m in height.

d/ The proportion of weight distributed on the guide shaft to the vehicle's unloaded weight and full loaded weight must not be less than 18%.

e/ The vehicle's maximum climbing ability must not be less than 7o (equivalent to 12%).

f/ The vehicle's angle of lateral static stability in the unloaded state must not be less than 25o.

g/ Fuel or lubricating oil does not leak at joints of components and systems fitted on the vehicle such as engine, clutch, gear box, transmission system, fuel tank, carburetor and fuel pipes.

h/ Parts which may come into contact with the driver and other passengers must not be pointed. The vehicle's protruding parts must satisfy requirements specified in Vietnam standard 6999: 2002.

i/ Screw joints, after being assembled, must be securely tightened. The tightening force of screw joints of important details must comply with technical documents issued by the manufacturer for each specific type of vehicle.

j/ The vehicle must show a symbol indicating that it is intended for use by the disabled at a noticeable position.

2. Controlling structure

a/ The vehicle's controlling structure must be suitable to the movement system of the disabled person who operates that vehicle; other controlling structures must satisfy the requirements specified in Vietnam standard TCVN 5929: 2005 or relevant national technical regulations like ordinary motorcycles or mopeds.

b/ The vehicle's controlling structures must be firmly fitted and easily operated.

3. Engines and transmission systems

a/ The vehicle's engine and transmission system must satisfy requirements specified in Vietnam standard TCVN 5929: 2005 or relevant technical regulations like ordinary motorcycles or mopeds.

b/ Exhaust pipe:

- The discharge hole must be designed so that the exhaust gas jet does not directly affect other traffic participants.

- The exhaust pipe must be arranged so that the vehicle and luggage cannot catch fire from the exhaust pipe and exhaust gas; and does not affect the braking function of the brake structure and electric and fuel systems.

4. Wheels and tires

a/ Wheel rims must satisfy the requirements specified in Vietnam standard TCVN 7234: 2003, Vietnam standard TCVN 6443: 1998 or relevant national technical regulations.

c/ Brake effect upon on-road testing

- Brake-testing conditions: An unloaded vehicle fitted with equipment and devices necessary for brake testing; the driver's weight of 75 kg; the road used for testing having a flat and dry concrete or asphalt surface.

- Brake effect: For vehicles of an engine capacity of less than 50 cm3 or a maximum speed of less than 50 km/h, the braking distance for the speed of 20 km/h must not be longer than 4 m. For vehicles of an engine capacity of 50 cm3 or more or a maximum speed of 50 km/h or more, the braking distance for the speed of 30 km/h must not be longer than 7.5 m.
