Twist & Go


New motorcyclists who want to ride a moped may take their test on a 125cc moped, this will entitle them to a restricted license only. Upon completing your CBT you are entitled to ride “a moped of 125cc or less”, providing you display L plates, both on the front and rear of the moped at all times.

We strongly advise all new riders to complete a test and not to simply complete a CBT and then ride on public roads.
