Hi I have a UK provisional licence which I have held since 1988 on it it says I have 4 categories. Am from 2017 A from 1996 B from 1988 And fghjkl from 88 My question relates to the A. Everywhere I have read category A means you can ride any bike but the dvla Cs handler said I can only provisionally rude any bike and can only ride a 125. I tried explaining even if I took the theory and practical test tomorrow I would still only have a provisional license as I haven't got a car license. I passed my second last scooter test on a 125cc vespa in 1988 and I know licenses and the categories have changed a few times since then. There is no restrictions listed under section 12 on my licence Check code for my license is this. hZ kY NG Lr This is where in confused as it says I can ride a motorcycle over 35kw or one under 35kw Any help clarifying this would be appreciated thanks.
