Provisional licence for CBT and bike size

Hi


I'm planning on getting a direct access A2 licence (I'm 22), how different is it to ride a bigger bike? I.e. would I be best off getting a 125 I can ride to and from work and taking the test on a bigger bike or just getting a bigger bike straight away and only using it for lessons?


Also my full car licence says fkp 01,122 on the back, which I understand means moped provisional, do I have to do anything to be able to take a CBT for a "proper" bike?

Your car licence is enough to take your CBT on, but you cant ride until you have passed your CBT.


an A2 would give you the freedom to carry a pillion and go on the motorway so if you want to ride for pleasure then its the better choice (not saying 125s arent fun, just harder to cover any sort of distance) buit obviously a cbt is 100 quid and you can pick up a bike cheap, and A2 will cost you 600+ pounds.


Dont buy a bike until youve got your licence, just use the riding schools bikes. You cant ride to the school and insurance is a 'mare. Plus if you drop it while you're learning...well its not yours then is it.

I really hate to burst your bubble, and this is the second time I have had to say this to someone, but you now have to be 24 to do DAS.

I had to tell someone at work who is 21 and had his test already booked, 600cc bought and was really excited. I hope you haven't got as far as booking your test yet.


at 21 you can legally ride "Medium motorbikes up to 35 kW (and a power-to-weight ratio not more than 0.2 kW per kg), bike mustn't be derived from vehicle more than twice its power"


Welcome to the forum though! :)
