'A2' Motorcycle Licence

'A2' is suitable for those:

  • Who are aged 19+
  • Who have either held an 'A1' licence for 2 years or
  • Who have completed CBT and do both a theory and a practical test


  • You can ride any 'AM', 'A1' or 'A2' category motorbike or scooter without L plates, with power up to 35KW (46.6 bhp) which will typically mean up to 500cc engine size, or a restricted version of a bigger more powerful model
  • You'll also be able to carry a passenger

After holding an 'A2' motorcycle licence for 2 years, you can take another practical test and get an unrestricted 'A' motorcycle licence, where you'd be allowed to ride any motorcycle or scooter.
