    Yes. It's your age that changes it.

    On a CBT at 16 you can ride a 50cc, at 17 a 125cc.

    no, you can't
    How helpful.

    Seriously though, if your 17 and have an in-date CBT certificate you can ride a geared 125cc bike.

    Dont forget you need to retake it when your 18! Dont let it expire and forget.

    Yes i would assume so as the direct.gov doesnt say you have to redo it. Just dont let it run out. And you will still need the L-plates

    Your CBT is valid for two years and covers any category of bike.

    Well...legally...the bike has to wear them. Only problem if you dont wear them is your screwed if you get pulled over.

    The pros of not wearing L plates = cars dont ride up your arse all the time.

    Thats why i never bothered with a moped, just went for a bike, far easier to get rid of them and annoy them..

    I remember once riding waiting at a junction and saw a moped go past with a Suburu literally 2 feet behind him with some middle aged man looking angry. Felt bad for the lad on the moped.

    L Plates cause learner riders greater risk than without them.

    16 - restricted to 50cc ONLY.

    17 - 125cc but I think you need to take a test for that again

    Also when you're 17 you can buy ANY Motorbike and restrict it to 33bhp that way it's legal i.e. if you buy a Yamaha R6 at 17, you can restrict it to 33bhp making it legal to ride.

    mopeds generally i think are dangerous, as you are far smaller engine than anything else so unable to accelerate out of the way of danger, and overtaking. this isnt helps by the idiots on mopeds who cut people out, swerve over the road, dont follow road laws.

    Often cars sit behind i think as they want to be at the speed limit, which many mopeds struggle with

    Plus them going on the A12 and just about doing 30mph.. sitting right in the edge of the lane, meaning lorries have to overtake. they swerve in the wind, and cause enormous queues. That would be what really annoys me, like the lads who come round my bike at lights and cut infront of me so i cant get past them and do the speed limit

    But i doubt you'll get it insured

    And you need to do the test both theory and practical to ride it
