As far as I know

the Feb 2001 rule is that it gives you full moped entitlement on a car licence without doing CBT (ie 50cc and limited to 30mph), but for a 125cc CBT is still required.

Thats my understanding anyway.

I think (unless things have changed) that with the date you got your licence, if you have "Motorcycle entitlement" on it, you can ride up to a 125cc WITH "L" PLATES on.

But I'd ring a training company to find out for sure.

Directgov answers all

If you have a car driving licence

If you passed your car driving test on or after 1 February 2001, you must complete a CBT course to confirm your full moped rights.

If you passed your car driving test before 1 February 2001 you don't need to complete a CBT course to ride a moped. However, the Driving Standards Agency (DSA) recommends that you do.

If you want to ride a motorcycle you must apply for a provisional motorcycle licence and then complete a CBT course.

Shiny side up :biggrin:
