Test Category

Any vehicle you present for use in a motorcycle or moped riding test must by law meet minimum test vehicle standards. Vehicles that don't meet the minimum test requirements are not suitable for the purpose of taking a test, and your test may be cancelled.

Minimum test vehicle requirements for mopeds

The moped you use for your practical test must:

  • have an engine capacity not exceeding 50 cylinder capacity (cc), and a maximum speed of 50 kilometres per hour (km/h) which is approximately equivalent to 32 miles per hour (mph)
  • be equipped with pedals to be able to drive the moped forward, if the moped was used before 1 August 1977

Minimum test vehicle requirements for motorcycles

If your motorcycle is less than 75 cc it is not acceptable for the practical motorcycle test. There are three different categories of machine you can use for your motorcycle test:

  • category A1 (light motorcycle) - a solo motorcycle between 75 and 125 cc, with a power output not exceeding 11 kilowatts - passing your test on a machine in this category will enable you to ride machines up to 125 cc as a full licence holder.
  • category A2 (standard motorcycle) - a solo motorcycle between 121 and 125 cc, capable of exceeding 100 kph (62.5 mph) - passing your test on a machine in this category will enable you to ride machines with a power output not exceeding 25 kilowatts (33 brake horse power) as a full licence holder for a period of two years; after the two year period the restriction will be automatically lifted and you may ride larger machines
  • category A (big bike) – a solo motorcycle with a power output of at least 35 kilowatts (46.6 brake horse power) - passing your test on a machine in this category under the Direct Access Scheme or Progressive Access Scheme will enable you to ride a motorcycle of any engine size and power output.

You must use the same category of machine for both parts of the practical motorcycle test. Machines similar to the BMW C1 motorcycle are not suitable for the practical test.

Motorcycle with a sidecar

Only candidates with certain disabilities can use a motorcycle and sidecar combination for the test. The requirements for a motorcycle with a sidecar are the same as for a solo motorcycle, but:

  • categories 'A' and 'A1' must not exceed a power to weight ratio of 0.16 kilowatts per kilogram
  • passengers are not allowed to ride in the sidecar during the test

The licence you receive from this test will only allow you to use this combination of vehicle.
