What kind of motorcycle licence can I get?
Motorcycle licences come with different engine size and age restrictions, so the type of licence you can obtain is largely dependent on your age and if you’ve already got a motorcycle licence, how long you’ve been riding for. The chart below shows which ages and engine sizes pertain to each licence type.

|A1||17 to 19+||125cc||Compulsory Basic Training (CBT), theory test, practical test||125cc|
|A2||19 to 24+||500cc||Theory and practical test (CBT must have already been obtained to completed these tests ) or 2 years’ experience on A1 motorbike and a practical test||35Kw (approx. 550 – 600cc)|
|A (full motorcycle licence)||24 + (or after holding an A2 licence for a minimum of 2 years)||600 cc||CBT, theory and practical test at 24 years of age or older, or hold an A2 licence for minimum of 2 years and pass a practical test at age 21 or older||Any sized bike|
