It means you have a provisional licence for those categories ie there's a test to pass to convert it to a full licence

the secret with the CBT is in the C...Compulsory .
Most learner motorcycle and moped riders must take compulsory basic training (CBT). You then have to pass your full motorcycle test within 2 years or you’ll have to take CBT again.
After you’ve completed your CBT, you can ride a moped or a motorbike up to 125cc and with a power output of up to 11kW on the road. You must use L plates (L or D plates in Wales) until you pass your full motorcycle test

CBT expires after 2 years unless you do full bike test.

If I remember correctly you have the right to ride mopeds for life assuming you pass your driving test within the CBT period. not really helpful for a bike test though as you still need a 'valid' cbt to do that

What do you want to ride? How old are you?

A Ride anything :)

A1 Ride anything restricted to 33 bhp :wanker:
No that's A2, and its 46 bhp now, I was half way through doing the 33 then it changed, now you have to do 2 tests instead of 1.

Basically if you look at my 1st post my license tell me that I can ride/drive any bike provisionally. Its saying category A not A1. look at the link you will see that A1 is restricted to 125cc.

Im phoning DVLA tomorrow to clarify this, because the GOV website is either lying or wrong.

Oh yeah, very confusing. Always photocopy your license and any certificates before you send them to dvla. Lots of people have had to redo their test because their license has come back with categories missing.

Just for clarification. I am 46 years old and been driving here in the UK with my international driving license for a year. Now I got my provisional license. It says here that, with Category A I can drive a motorcycle unrestricted, and Category B a car with not more than 3,500 unladen weight. My question is, do I still need to take a CBT to ride a motorcycle (of any kind) unaccompanied and unrestricted? Or drive a car alone with L plates displayed? Since other websites stated that the DVLA ONLY ISSUE such license categories AFTER YOU HAVE SATISFACTORILY COMPLETED the required tests. But it's here on my provisional license already and I haven't done any tests yet due to lockdown. Can anyone share their thorough knowledge on this?

easiest answer is what year did you pass your test ? there were a lot of changes regarding what you could and couldn't drive etc after 1996
