As far as I know
the Feb 2001 rule is that it gives you full moped entitlement on a car licence without doing CBT (ie 50cc and limited to 30mph), but for a 125cc CBT is still required.
Thats my understanding anyway.
hi cheers mate for the info on the cbt that is my understanding of the law aswell dont know where the insurance company got there understanding from i will run it by the dvla next week then phone the insurance back it was swinton bike insurance that gave me the duff info
I think (unless things have changed) that with the date you got your licence, if you have "Motorcycle entitlement" on it, you can ride up to a 125cc WITH "L" PLATES on.
But I'd ring a training company to find out for sure.

If you have a car driving licence
If you passed your car driving test on or after 1 February 2001, you must complete a CBT course to confirm your full moped rights.
If you passed your car driving test before 1 February 2001 you don't need to complete a CBT course to ride a moped. However, the Driving Standards Agency (DSA) recommends that you do.
If you want to ride a motorcycle you must apply for a provisional motorcycle licence and then complete a CBT course.
