A1 Motorcycle Licence

From age 17 and over.

A1 Motorcycle Licence

Aged 17 and over

At 17 you can ride a motorcycle (either scooter or motorcycle style) up to 125cc (maximum power 11KW) on your provisional licence after completing a CBT course. You must display L plates and cannot carry a passenger or use motorways.

Your CBT certificate is valid for 2 years.

After passing your CBT and a motorcycle Theory Test you can also choose to take the 2-stage practical test to gain an A1 licence. This category will allow you to ride a motorcycle or scooter up to 125cc (with maximum power of 11 KW) without L plates, and to carry a passenger. You might find that passing a full motorcycle test can also reduce your insurance costs.

Again, even if you opt to ride on L plates after completing your CBT instead of gaining your A1 Licence, we strongly advise you to get additional training for your own safety and confidence. KRTS offer an excellent Commuter Plus course that will help ensure you enjoy your motorcycle and stay safe.
