6. If you have a car driving licence

You can ride a moped (up to 50cc) without L plates and without taking the moped test in some situations.

You passed your driving test on or after 1 February 2001

You’ll get a full moped licence if you either:

  • pass your car driving test and then complete a compulsory basic training (CBT) course
  • complete a CBT course and then pass your car driving test within two years

You can then ride a moped (up to 50cc) without L plates. You don’t need to take the full moped test.

You can ride mopeds for as long as your car driving licence lasts.

You passed your driving test before 1 February 2001

You can ride a moped (up to 50cc) without L plates. You don’t need to take a CBT course or take the full moped test.

You must take CBT if you want to ride anything larger than a 50cc moped.
