Choosing the right bike for the right test

1 of 1

If you are looking for a bike to pass your test on, make sure that you purchase the right bike for the category of test you want to pass, or you could find yourself restricted to a 125 with only an A1 pass to your name, and a test to take again.

The Drivers Standards Agency has a list of bikes and the tests you can pass on them here.

But it’s not definitive as it doesn’t include older bikes like Yamaha’s TZR125 and the accompanying notes advise examiners to “if…examiners are in any doubt as to which category of pass to issue they should issue the lower category of pass certificate.”

So make sure you do your research before you buy your bike.
