    I am over 24 , I have a provisional licence with categories B, A and AM. I have a few questions. The first is: although I know to gain a full car licence you need to pass a test, what about these "Quadricycle Cars" or "Micro cars", can I do a CBT and drive without supervision as these are either AM or B1 classified. Secondly aare the sub categories included in the full one? Eg: Do I have provision for categories B1, A2 and A1? Thirdly and lastly, does a full car licence entitle you drive these "Microcars". If not do I need an AM or B1?

    For a vehicle that is classed as AM, you would need a CBT to be able to drive it. You then must display L plates, and can't use motorways. You can also only drive for 2 years before you must either take the full test or retake the cbt.

    B1 licences don't exist now.

    A full car licence would entitle you to drive a car, but it doesn't come with any A entitlements. So you cannot drive an AM vehicle without a CBT.

    in that case as I only need a small car to get around town, does the new A rules replace the old B1? This is because the European manufacturers who make them in the UK say B1. its all confusing. I got a response on how they categorize these cars, its weight not power lol. I don't want to spend loads of money on something I don't need.
