Licence Requirements for 50cc and 125cc Mopeds, Scooters and Motorbikes
Anyone who has a full car driving licence passed before 1st February 2001 can ride a 50cc 'moped' class (max 30mph, not exceeding 50cc) without 'L' Plates for as long as their car licence is valid and can carry a passenger. This is all you can ride with ONLY a car licence. All of our new 50cc road bikes (and most of our used 50cc bikes) are 'moped' class as standard.
Anyone without the above must have a minimum of a provisional driving licence and complete a CBT (compulsory basic training) session before they can ride legally on public roads. A CBT is a simple training session run by motorcycle training schools to offer basic instructions to new riders and will cost approx £90 lasting between 2-6 hrs depending on the school. After a CBT has been completed any bike up to 125cc (max 14hp) can be ridden provided 'L' plates are displayed and no passenger is carried. 16yr old riders are further restricted to 50cc 'moped' class bikes (max 30mph) until they are 17. The CBT will last for 2yrs and must then be re-taken unless the rider chooses to go on to take a full class bike test (not discussed here). If however the rider subsequently passes his car driving test (s)he will be able to continue to ride a 50cc 'moped' class bike until the car licence expires and without 'L' plates.
