CBT and Moped/Motorbike laws...Help!!

Hi guys

The info on the net is very conflicting so I am hoping you guys can help!

I have a Full UK Car Licence issued in Jan 2002, and I am 36 years old.

1 -  If I take my CBT is it correct that if I continue to ride a 50cc or less my CBT lasts for the life of my Car Licence, but if I ride a 125cc it only lasts 2 years?

2 - Do I need learner plates and can I carry a passenger if I continue to use a 50cc?  Will I require plates for a 125cc?

3 - My Car Licence shows category P (122), which I assume is a provisional moped category?  Will this become full after passing my CBT?

4 - my LX50 is a 49cc but is it still considered a 50cc??

Apologies for all the questions but there are so many conflicting bits of info on the net which has confused me, I hope you can answer the above questions.

 Thanks

Even though your questions sound a little like a wind up (apologies if it isn't) are readily explained here...
https://www.gov.uk/rules-motorcyclists-83-to-88/motorcycle-licence-requirements

Here's the answers to your questions

1: No; Compulsory.Basic.TRAINING. (it's NOT a test) lasts two years.

2: Yes you need "L" plates on Anything up to 125cc and you can't ride anything bigger than that until you pass the DSA tests. No you can't carry a pillion until you pass the DSA tests

3: Provisional yes and remains so until you pass the DSA tests

4: It's a maximum cc, i.e. Up to 50 & not exceeding, not a specific.

Thanks for your response, I can assure you its not a wind up.  However, I spoke to the DVLA and they said the following to my questions: -

1 - Yes that is correct


2 - No you do not need L plates. Once you have a DL196 (Cert of CBT completion, your P category becomes full entitlement. You need L plates on a 125cc.


3 - P becomes full entitlement with CBT cert, which you need to keep with your licence. Other option is to send your licence back with the cert to have the 122 code removed.

4. Rules are 50cc or under.

My mistake

Pre 2001 you didn't need any training/test for a moped licence, it was given free-gratis with a full car licence!:shock:

Post 2001 you have to complete a C.B.T. to get the moped licence though you may wish to reconsider taking a pillion on one, bloody slow & scary!

Wasn't fully awake when I answered!  DOH!:huh:
