I recently bought a 50cc motorbike to use when I'm 16 and was just wondering if a test needs to be done in order to receive the licence, or if you only need to send for it and pay the £50.00.


I'm not expecting much from the pit, but maybe someone will answer.

No if you want your provisional just ask for the forms at the post office fill it in and send it off with the money and you should have your license.

You still have to take the CBT to be legally able to ride it mind.


Do I need to do this before or after getting the licence?

I was also wondering if it applies in Northern Ireland, as my friend is under the impression that it doesn't.

I think it was only about £35 when I got mine.

It's one of those things they bump the price up on by ridiculous amounts each year, I suppose.

And yes, you need to do the CBT if you want to ride a bike, even if it is just a hairdryer. I think that's about £100 (?)

As has been said above, to validate your license you need to complete your cbt. You therefore need your license before you do the CBT. This is compulsory across the whole U.K..

Okay, heres how it goes:
- send off for your provisional (can do this up to 3 months before your birthday)
- take lessons on how to ride/drive a bike/car (must have L plates)
- take theory test (not sure if this counts for bikes)
- take driving/CBT test for car/bike
- if you pass you get a shiny new pink license.

And you'll need to be insured on your bike if you plan on riding your bike with L plates in town.

Fix'd

Although to ride a hairdryer, as the OP wants, you just need to do your CBT and have a provisional.

-Wait two years or until 21 to do full bike test

And you'll need to be insured on your bike if you plan on riding your bike with L plates in town.

If you do a bike test at 17 then it is a 600cc. It might be 250cc with a full car licence and CBT but no bike test, but can then do the immediate access for a full bike licence.
