How to get a motorbike licence
RE: PH2: new licencing laws explained... - PistonHeads

There is little doubt that over recent years, the requirements relating to motorcycle licences have become ever more complicated and sometimes extremely confusing.

Exactly how you go about obtaining a licence depends upon a number of factors, including things such as:

  • the type of existing licence you hold (if any);
  • the type of moped, scooter or motorcycle you wish to ride;
  • if you hold an existing car driving licence, when you obtained it, as your automatic entitlement to ride various forms of motorcycle may vary depending upon when it was issued.

Although the requirements are now fairly complicated, they are intended to try and reduce the number of accidents and fatalities incurred by two wheeled road users each year in the UK.

Unfortunately, space here doesn’t permit a full discussion of all the possible routes open to you but you will be able to find full details and explanations on the DVLA’s site.

There are though, a few basic points to highlight.

For most younger or recently qualified (in car terms) licence holders, what is called the CBT will be obligatory. This stands for compulsory basic training and is now a requirement for all people who wish to ride a motorised two-wheeled vehicle on the road.

In the past, it was possible to ride certain types of bike based upon a provisional licence only but this is now felt to be insufficient and potentially dangerous.

Following on from that, there are various stages of practical and theoretical test that eventually result in you having permission to ride motorbikes and carry pillion passengers.

Once you do have your full licence, you may be advised to consider taking enhanced and eventually advanced rider examinations. Passing those may have a number of benefits, not the least of which may be a reduction in your motorcycle insurance premiums.

Of course, once you own any sort of bike, it will need to be taxed and insured even if you are not qualified to ride it and it sits in your garage. The one exception to this would be in circumstances where you had completed a statutory off road notification (SORN) through the DVLA.

When you are looking for insurance, remember to keep an eye open for categories that may be particularly suited to your requirements.

Some insurance providers might offer things such as younger rider cover or female bike insurance. UK insurance providers will typically work hard to try and identify suitable cover for you, whatever your status is at a given time in license terms.

Help you. I didn't realize you had purchased this car from a private party. I do not believe the lemon law will apply to your car. This summarizes the law:
The applicable part for you is:
"All new vehicles sold or leased with warranty provisions are covered under the law, except for commercial and off-road vehicles, mopeds, motorcycles and the non-chassis portion of recreational vehicles. Also included are demonstrators or lease-purchase vehicles as long as a manufacturer's warranty was issued as a condition of the sale
