....I've still got my green license....I refuse on general principals to get a new one because they need replacing every 10 years, and 1. I'm a tight bugger and 2. my green one is immortal (until I hit 70 or move house but that's another story.....)
That's all very well but if you check with the DVLA then you'll find you are restricted to driving steam powered vehicles or riding a horse.
Just...totally...wrong. And, BTW, I can drive a steam engine......and ride a horse! And fly an aeroplane.....and steer a narrow boat.......and a fire engine.....and ride a push bike.... :thumb:
Oh my God, what's happened? I don't know man...I just got here myself!

Hello and welcome :D

It depends you have said you are driving for 3 years. Do you have car license category B? If yes you put that you have full car license.

If not then you have provisional license and you put that you have provisional license.

Just look at your license does it look like this:

CBT has nothing to do with licenses, CBT is a training certificate that gives you a right to ride 125cc on public roads.
check out code 103 on a driving licence
cbt is not just for 125 it is for 50cc as well

with regards to insurance it will relate to the vehicle you are trying to insure
so if its a motorcycle you only have a provisional licence for that vehicle .

regardless of having a full car licence .
