In a word

No, you'd need to take another test before you could ride most 600's as they put out more than 93bhp

Question: Why would you want to take a restricted test when you're old enough to go the Direct Access route. (my guess would be financial?). Thus avoid having to take another test to gain an unrestricted licence?

False Economy

Whilst it may be slightly cheaper to do the A2 licence to begin with the fact is you'll have to do another set of tests to gain a cat A licence, in effect Doubling the amount you end up spending! Might as well pay slightly more to do direct access first time & the money you save from not having to do another set of tests could be put toward some advanced training/confidence building.

Just a thought, Happy Riding whatever you choose to do chap:smile

Do the

full test but just be sensible what bike you buy. You don't have to have a restricted licence to have a restrictor fitted if you wanted to go down that route and just because you have a full licence doesn't mean you have to buy a 600cc. Personally, I'd do the full test and look at a 400cc.

Interactive diagram

Hi Hawker,

I'm not sure if you are still looking for information on this, but we have just created an interactive diagram to help people understand the recent laws. You can find it by googling 'TDL motorcycle licence' or clicking HERE

Hope it helps,

Oliver
