  • At 16 years of age you can ride up to 50cc with CBT. (AM Licence)
  • At 17 years of age you can ride up to 125cc with CBT. (A1 Licence)

You will then have to pass your full motorcycle test within 2 years or you’ll have to take your CBT again.

You don’t need to pass CBT to ride a 50 cc moped if you passed your car driving test before 1st February 2001.

Your CBT involves:

  • introduction and an eyesight check
  • practical on-site training

When you complete compulsory basic training (CBT) to at least the minimum standard, you’ll get a certificate of completion. – also called a DL196.Your certificate of completion lets you ride a moped or a motorbike (depending on your age) up to 125cc on the road with L plates for 2 years.

A2 Licence

At a minimum of 19 years old, an A2 licence permits you to ride a medium powered motorcycle up to 35kw or 47bhp

There are 2 routes to an A2 licence, Direct Access, which involves a mixture of theory and practical learning and  tests, or Staged Access which consists of 2 years experience on an A1 rated bike before taking a practical test.

A Licence

The A Licence permits you to ride any motorcycle of unlimited power. If you are aged 21 or over and have held an A2 Licence for a minimum of 2 years, then the Staged Access route allows you to take a practical test to gain this licence.
