Your provisional licence
The first cost that any new potential motorbike licence holder must face is sending off and paying for their provisional licence. This will set you back £34 if you apply online (or £43 by post) but this is by far the most worthwhile investment of your life when it comes to transport.
As your provisional licence will cover you for every type of normal vehicle such as mopeds, 125cc motorcycles/scooters and cars but these will only be valid when you turn 17.
When you are 16 the only vehicle your provisional licence will cover you for will be 50cc mopeds.
Your practical test
There are a number of motorbike licences available and, as such, a number of different motorbike tests, too.
They are all two-part practical tests and there are different eligibility criteria for each one dependent on age, experience and how recently you have passed your CBT and theory test. They range from a Moped licence, all the way up to an Unrestricted A licence.
You can either pay for each part separately or for both, however the first part will always be an off road test, followed by the road test. The price for the off-road test is £15.50 while the road test costs £75 on week days and £88.50 on weekends or bank holidays.
