It's a little more complicated that that Pat. If you are under 21 then it is CBT, theory test and practical test for a full Cat A. You are then restricted to 46.6 bhp (35kW) for two years.

If you are going to be 21 before the end of the qualifying period then you can use the accelerated access scheme to take a further test and have immediate access to all motorcycles.

Because I am over 21 (only just ) I can follow the direct access route which is CBT, theory and practical to get full Cat A with no restrictions.

There is also Cat A1 for light motorcycles which is just CBT and practical if you want to ride a 125 without L plates.

Why do today what you can put off until tomorrow...

Wanna see what I drive? No pics of the latest Passat, but you can see the Scenic II here and the CB1000R here!

Previous Passat here and Bandit here.
Currently in martin999's garage:
2011 (11) VW Passat 2.0 TDi SE + options in Island Grey, 2011 (11) Honda CB1000R in Pearl Cool White... oh and a 2004 (54) Secnic II 1.5dCi Dynamique in Ottoman Blue !
