Want to get a bike (19)

Hi I've been driving for nearly 3 years, but I'm looking to getting a bike. I'm 20 in april and I was looking on the direct gov website about the new rules. On the back of my drivers licence it says FKP and code 122.


I did my CBT about 2 years ago so I'm assuming its expired and will have to do it again now. 

What I'd like to know:
Do I need to apply for a motorbike licence?
Under the new rules in 2013, do I still have to learn on a 125 or can I just the A2 test on a little bit bigger bike.
And if I still have to do it on a 125, where do you recommend I get one from. I've been looking online around my area and there are no used 125's only new chinese ones.

Thanks for you help, Zak.

hi thanks for your reply. My friend said you don't need your own bike for lessons. What is the average price for a lesson with their bike. I've emailed a few places as im at work.

Also could anybody tell me what mod1 and mod2 are for ?

I passed my CBT last Sunday (yay).


Going to ride around for a month or so on my CBR125 and then take my Mod 1 and 2 tests, just to get them out of the way before the new rules come in.

I did my CBT on Sunday but I tried to book my bike theroy but it won't let me. Do I have to apply for a provisional bike license aswell? Am I even allowed to have done my CBT if I only have a full car license?

Car license

Unless its changed in the last 3 years I did my CBT then bike theory under my full car license before progressing to my DAS the following week.  I don't ever remember having to apply for provisional motorcycle license but then I am 30 so things might have changed since I did my car test 13 years ago.


Best thing you can do is do an internet search for DAS instructors and call up the one with the best reviews, they'll be able to point you in the right direction.
