Moving to a class R motorcycle licence

You must hold a class RE provisional or open motorcycle licence for at least 2 years if you gained your licence after 1st October, 2016, or 1 year if you gained it earlier before you are allowed to learn to ride a class R motorcycle.

A class R motorcycle is a 2 or 3 wheel motorcycle with unlimited engine size.

To upgrade to a class R licence, you must complete a Q-Ride course riding a non LAMS bike.

Once you have successfully completed this and gained your unrestricted R licence there are a range of rules that you need to be familiar with including pillion passengers, lane filtering, edge filtering and many other topics.
