Heavy bikes owners with the engine capacity above 660cc will soon be able to roll their two-wheelers on motorways following Islamabad High Court order today.

The IHC has ordered the concerned authorities to ensure the implementation of its earlier issued order till 15th December 2019. Justice Mohsin Akhtar Kiyani also threatened to initiate contempt of court proceedings against Inspector General motorways in case the order is not implemented till next Sunday.

Following the court’s proceedings, the lawyer of the Biker Club mentioned that the whole matter dates back to last year. He added that former IG motorway banned the entry of heavy bikes on motorways in 2013 after they were allowed in 2011.

He went on to add that the IHC restored the entry of heavy bikes on motorways earlier this year and directed the motorways police to submit the rules and regulations set for bikes in the court. But Babar Sattar alleged that the concerned authority is showing laziness to implement the orders.


The motorway police have set the following conditions for the entry of bikes on motorways:

  • Only a person having Biker Card issued by the National Highways and Motorway Police will be allowed.
  • A valid motorbike license along with the Biker Card.
  • A person below the age of 30 isn’t allowed to apply for Biker Card.
  • The Biker Card should be renewed every year.
  • Motorbikes on motorways shouldn’t exceed 110 km/h.
  • Violations of rules will result in the cancelation of both the rider’s license and the biker card.
  • Motorbikes with engine capacity below 660cc will not be allowed on the motorway.

As per a local media outlet, “only the motorbikes tax returns filers will be allowed to enter the motorway.”
