What Licence Do You Have?
To undertake any training course you will need to have a valid UK driving
licence with the correct motorcycle entitlement.
Provisional Licence (cars and motorcycles)
You must complete CBT before you ride either mopeds or motorcycles. CBT validates your licence and allows you to ride for two years during which time you must display L-plates. Note: you are not allowed to carry passengers on any machine if you are also required to display L-plates.
Full car licence issued before 1st February 2001
You will have full moped (up to 49cc) and provisional motorcycle entitlement. You do not need a CBTcertifcate or L-Plates to ride a moped and can carry passengers on 49cc bikes (but we would recommend it) A CBT is required to ride motorcycles over 49cc.
Full car licence issued after 1st February 2001
You must complete CBT before using your full moped entitlement. Once completed you may ride up to 49cc mopeds without L-plates and carry passengers until your car licence expires. You may ride motorcycles up to 125cc on the same certificate, but for two years only with L-plates.
