Your motorcycle must meet certain rules to be used for your motorcycle test.
The Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency has been given proof that the subcategory A2 and category A motorcycles listed meet the rules.
Changes to category A from 2018
From the end of 2018:
- the power output will change to at least 50 kW
- a minimum kerb weight of 180 kg will apply
Motorcycles affected by this change are shown on the list as A*. You won’t be able to use these for the test from the end of 2018. This change is still subject to EU approval.
AM mopeds and A1 motorcycles
Subcategory AM mopeds and A1 motorcycles aren’t listed.
You can use any AM or A1 ‘learner legal’ mopeds or motorcycles, unless there’s clear evidence it doesn’t meet the rules.
