You can ride a moped without L plates and without taking the full motorcycle test if either:
- you have a car driving licence and a compulsory basic training (CBT) certificate
- you passed your driving test before 1 February 2001
You must complete a CBT course to confirm your full moped licence if you passed your car driving test on or after 1 February 2001.
Your CBT certificate for riding mopeds is then valid for as long as your car driving licence.
Mopeds have a maximum engine size of 50cc and a maximum speed of approximately 31mph.
