The Category A1 Restricted Licence is aimed mainly at those who want a full motorcycle licence, but do not intend riding a motorbike/scooter over 125cc. It is also the only licence that can be gained by those aged seventeen to nineteen inclusive.
The training and test throughout the course is very similar to the Direct access scheme. Students will complete the course and take their practical test on a motorcycle/scooter with an engine size of 125cc. A pass will entitle the license holder to ride motorcycles/scooters up to 125cc under a full license.
