Motorcycle Practical Test Routes

Choices After Your CBT
The new motorcycle licensing laws mean your choices depend partly on your  age. Please Find Below The Information That Relates To You

Age 16 or Over-A1 Moped Age 17 or Over-A1 Motorcycle

You may ride a moped with L plates after completing CBT, or you could opt for  the new AM licence by taking your theory test and then a practical test. This  allows you to ride a moped up to 50cc with a top speed of 45 km/h (around 28mph)  without L plates, and to carry a passenger.

Even if you decide not to get your full moped licence, we recommend that you do further training after CBT to improve your riding skills and your road sense.

You can take a 2-stage practical test, after passing your CBT and theory  tests, to get an A1 licence. This allows you to ride a motorcycle or scooter up  to 125cc (with maximum power of 11 KW) without L plates, and to carry a  passenger. Passing a full motorcycle test can also reduce your insurance  costs.
After two years of holding an A1 motorcycle licence, you can take another  practical test and get an A2 Motorcycle Licence (see below).

Again, even if you opt to ride on L plates after completing CBT instead of  gaining your A1 Licence, we strongly advise you to get additional training for  your own safety and confidence.
Age 19 or Over-A2 Motorcycle Age 21 or Over
Unrestricted A Licence

You can get an A2 Motorcycle Licence, allowing you to ride a motorcycle or  scooter with power up to 35KW (46.6 bhp) which will typically mean up to 500cc  engine size, or a restricted version of a more powerful model.
There are two ways to qualify for an A2 licence:

If you have held an A1 Motorcycle Licence for 2 years, you can take another  practical test.
You can take the Direct Access route by completing CBT, Theory tests and a  practical test.
You are then allowed to ride any A2 category motorbike or scooter without L  plates and to carry a passenger.

After holding an A2 Motorcycle Licence for 2 years, you can take another  practical test and get an unrestricted A Motorcycle licence (see below).

You can get an A Motorcycle Licence, allowing you to ride any motorcycle or  scooter of any size or power. There are two ways to qualify for an A Motorcycle  Licence:

If you have held an A2 Motorcycle Licence for 2 years, you can take another  practical test.
If you are aged 24 or over, you can take the Direct Access route by  completing CBT, Theory tests and a practical test.
You are then allowed to ride any motorbike or scooter without L plates and to  carry a passenger.
