Driving Standards Agency Approved
If you are aged between 19 and 24 this will be your 2nd option, the 1st would be the A1 if you just want to ride a 125 and carry passengers.
If you have not already passed the A1 test then you must first take and complete a CBT course and the motorcycle theory test.
The test and training must be taken on a machine of a minimum engine size of 395cc that produces a maximum of 35 Kwh (47 Bhp). A minimum of 25 kW (33Bhp) also applies.
Upon passing you can ride any size/cc of motorbike but the power is capped at 35 kW (47 Bhp)
The other restrictions on this category are, the machine cannot be restricted down to 35 Kwh if it produces more than 70 kW or 94 Bhp in standard trim (from the manufacture) and the maximum power to weight ratio must be no more than 0.2kW per kg.
When you have held an A1 test for a minimum of two years you may upgrade to an A2 Standard licence by just retaking Modules 1 & 2. You will not need to take the CBT and theory test again if you chose this route
It is possible to obtain your Full A Licence at 21 providing at least two years have elapsed since passing the A2 test.
