Hi all,

I have a full driving licence and cat. p is included on the list. This entitles me to drive a mopeds, does that include motorbikes?
and what would be the correct definition or distinction between motorbikes and mopeds?

Many Thanks in advance

Nice, thanks guys,

Just to make things more clear as I do not want have a brush with the law (you know how it is @new years)
I got a full driving licence (car) back in '99 i have cat; B, B1, f,k,p and 01? on the back of my licence.

Does that still mean I'm allow to ride upto 125cc bikes? with or without L plates? I try searching on DVLA and no luck.

from DSA website

Motorcycles
Description Category Minimum age
Mopeds with an engine capacity not exceeding 50cc and a maximum design speed not exceeding 50km/h P 16
Light motorcycles with a cubic capacity not exceeding 125cc and a power output not exceeding 11kW (14.6bhp) A1 17
Motorcycles up to 25kW(33bhp) and a power to weight ratio not exceeding 0.16kW/kg. Motorcycle combination with a power to weight ratio not exceeding 0.16kW/kg A 17
Any size motorcycle with or without a sidecar A 21*

* Age 21 if the rider passed the test for large motorcycles as part of the Direct Access scheme, or two years from the date of test pass if the rider passed the test on a standard A motorcycle (power output up to 25 kW (33 bhp) or a power to weight ratio not exceeding 0.16kW/kg.)

it hasnt copied over very well. but the 1st part regarding cat P is for you. up to 50cc only. CBT will get you up to 125cc.

hope this helps

CBT (Compulsory Basic Training) was introduced in 1990 to help reduce the high accident rate for motorcycles. Anyone who wants to ride a motorbike on the road must first complete a CBT course. The only exception to this is if you had passed your car practical test before 1st February 2001, then you are allowed to ride a moped only without completing a CBT course. The CBT course must be carried out by a DSA approved instructor and will last from 4 - 6 hours depending on how you progress through the course, once the course is completed your CBT certificate will be valid for 2 years, in which time you must pass your practical test or retake another CBT course after that time.

It's worth doing a cbt if you are going to ride on the road anyways. It's a good day:thumbsup:

I cant believe some of the misinformation on here - which could land you in some serious ****

In a nutshell you can drive a 50cc moped (and nothing more)(without L Plates) if you have a P category and you passed your test before February 2001 without doing a CBT. If you want to drive anything more than a 50cc then you will need to do a CBT.

Thanks everyone,
Just done some huge research took me all day, nearly MOTD woohoo.
Anyway, found out 50cc, with speed limited (i think). Couldnt understand the 125cc bit, but i think that P category do not cover it. up to 125cc would be classed as A1?

as for CBT, its like a provisional thing? only last for 2 years, and not really a licence, therefore;
CBT will need L plates for bikes upto 125cc, and A1 will be the actual licence I would need for 125cc.

Not a huge fan of bikes, but I live near a stadium therefore on match days when i need to wiz out, it be the bike.

Please correct me if I'm wrong, just sent an email to DVLA and hope to get an answer in new years.
one quick question is the Aprilia RS50 classified as moped?

Yes as all 50cc's are classed as mopeds whatever shape or size to my knowledge
