The 125cc Motorcycle Test (A1) is taken on a motorcycle or scooter of between 121 and 125 cc, which should be capable of a speed of at least 90kph.

If you pass the A1 motorcycle test you will have a full licence to ride motorcycles of no more than 125cc and 11 Kw (14.6bhp).


Requirements before riding.

  • A current provisional licence, showing category 'A', or full car licence.
  • A current DL 196 (CBT) certificate.
  • A current Theory Test for Motorcycles certificate
  • Be at least 17 years of age.

Is my 125cc learner legal?

  • Not all 125's are learner legal, although most are. No bike is learner legal if it has greater power output than 11kw (14.6bhp).

Can I take my test on my automatic scooter? 

  • Yes you can, but your full licence will be restricted to automatics only. 

Can I take my test on my 100cc bike?

  • No, only motorcycles between 121cc and 125cc are allowed for test.

Can I ride any bike once I pass my test?

  • No, you will be restricted to riding a bike of no more than 125cc with a maximum power output of 15kw (14.6bhp) for 2 years after passing your test. After 2 years, or once you reach 19, you can do the A2 tests to upgrade to mid range size bikes
  • If you are 24 or more, you can take the Direct Access course to by-pass this restriction.

Routes to Your Licence

The laws about getting a full bike licence recently changed, and can be confusing. What courses you can do, and what bikes you can subsequently ride depend on your age. See the official DSA 'Routes to Your licence' flowchart HERE
