    I have my provisional license and I'm 17. To get a moped/motorcycle I would only need the CBT (about £120), whereas I would need to spend a lot more for driving lessons etc. on a car. Also buying the moped would be cheaper. All of the universities I have applied to are in big cities so I feel like a moped might be better. In addition I intend to live in a big city e.g. London so a moped might be better for that too. Any advice?

    A Car is a lot safer than a Bike. So it's more beneficial getting a Car.

    Road Tax is going to be higher with a car at this age i'd say get a moped, but then again it's less safe and easier to get stolen.
