I've just got a question about the proposed new licence plans they have coming early next year. I've currently got a restricted A licence, which would be lifted in 8 months. I've been reading about the new licence plans they have relating to the EU directive. If it was 2013 now and I was only just getting my licence, I'd be only eligible for a cat A2 licence as I'm 20, then after 2 years I'd have to take the cat A test.
I'm just rather worried about whether my restricted Cat A is going to morph overnight on the 19th January 2013 to a Cat A2, or whether when my restriction period continues and then turns into a full Cat A. It's just annoying as I want to be eligible to purchase a slighter larger bike than my 250 ninja.
It's putting off one of my friends from starting to learn at the moment as she doesn't see why she should continue paying for tests after she gets her initial test, as she's not going to be 21 until next March, so direct access is out the question.
So come help please folks!!!
