So when I eventually get my car driving license...what should be my next step(s) if I want to get a motorbike...?
At 17 you can do the restricted test and be subjected to 33bhp limit (yes the police check certificates lol), and you need to show L Plates too I think??
At 21 you can do the DAS and jump on any bike you like.
Both licenses enable you to ride on motorways and carry pillion passengers.
If you pass your restricted test and then turn 21 before the 2 years are up, you can do a top up course for about £100-200 which will give you the DAS license. Its more expensive and not really worth it in my opinion though, especially with the good range of 33bhp bikes out there nowadays
wow this thread has really come to life
