Messerschmitts v Spitfires

Just been watching an Episode of Chasing Classic Cars where Wayne Carini was at an auction where they were selling one of these:

"at the back there is a bench which will hold a small wife and child, or a larger wife and a shopping basket."
Meanwhile, the interesting bit for me was that I would be allowed to use the reverse gears but if I only had a motorbike licence (they were more popular in the '50s) I would only be allowed to go forward.
However, I'd rather have a Spitfire myself:
