Licences and theory tests

Hi, Hoping someone can answer this as I can't find a proper answer.

I'm finally getting round to getting a car licence (needed for career) but don't know if I need to do the theory test, I have a full bike licence (for 20 years) and have full entitlement cat B1 (trikes/4 wheeled vehicles/small cars upto 550kg) I just tried booking a car theory test online only to be told I already have it/I don't have the entitlement, I do have the entitlement (cat B provisional)

I've looked at a few websites (inc directgov) which say you don't need to if changing up a catagory (for example automatic car to manual) but does changing up from cat B1 to B count? Any help much apprieciated.

Have a look at

this link, from the DSA.

Look at paragraph 3.4, looks like you are OK and don't have to do a theory test.
