  14. Google Police Snap ... See how many uk forces have launched this ability and focus on dash cam footage ... and the prosecutions run quite high . So this is everywhere . So make it part of your decision making .. If i do that how will it be perceived ? Yes it may be over the speed limit but that takes a bit more for them to prove but are my actions falling into a chargeable catergory ...

  18. Yep i did but someone comes on asking a simple question and the thread ends up being full of needless drivel . So just in case the poster missed the answer to their question within it i thought i would clarify it .
  19. Nope. Only if you passed your car test before before 1 February 2001 without l plates you can ride a moped (50cc /limited to 28mph) The term moped (assigned category AM on a UK driving licence) describes any low-powered motor driven cycle with an engine capacity not greater than 50 cc (3.1 cu in) and a maximum design speed of no more than 45 km/h (28 mph). You do not need to take compulsory basic training (CBT) to ride a moped if you passed your car driving test before 1 February 2001. You’ll still need to complete CBT to ride a motorbike, however. Depending on your licence issue the catergories may be different https://www.gov.uk/old-driving-licence-categories You can check licence entitlement online
