Licence - Advice Please !!!

Right. I passed my test in 1969, albeit on a motor scooter which, at the time, gave me full licence privileges.

I just want to check if I am still able to ride any size machine with this licence?

Full licence

As long as the scooter wasn't an automatic then yes you can ride any size of bike without "L" plates.

Look at your licence.  It lists all of the categories of vehicle that you are entitled to drive/ride.  If the entitlement that you had for a motorcycle is no longer listed you will have to re-take your test.

But may be worth having some refresher training. Bikes are a bit quicker now.
