The A1 licence can be obtained from the age of 17 or over.
This will allow you to ride a motorcycle or scooter up to 125cc (with a maximum power of 11kw or 15bhp)
It will allow you to carry a pillion, ride on motorways, you won’t need to display learner plates front and rear, and of course, you won’t have to do your CBT every 2 years.
With the 125cc carrying more power and therefore more speed than a 50cc, this can be a safer option if you’re going to be riding on higher speed roads. The extra power will mean you’ll be able to keep with the flow of traffic where appropriate.
You will need to pass the theory test and two-part practical test.
