At 17 or above, a CBT will normally allow the rider up to 125cc with 'L' plates.
If you are 17 or older you can take a (15bhp) module one and two tests on a 125cc bike and on passing have a full bike licence, but restricted to a 125cc only.
If you are 19 or older you can take a (46bhp) module one and two tests on a 500cc bike and on passing have a full bike licence, but restricted in power to 46bhp approximately 500cc.
