Until you pass your main test, I believe it's just known as a Provisional motorbike category license.

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.

Hi all, if I did a DAS would I get a pink driving license as I currently only hold a provisional green license

If you do your DAS and pass. You will either get a new photocard license. Or.. If you are already a car driver, your current photocard will be updated.
If there's one positive we can take from the Tory leadership campaign, it's that they can always find ways to make things worse.

....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.....)
Oh my God, what's happened? I don't know man...I just got here myself!

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.

I also still have my green license.. for the exact same reasons as Speedy23. It has to be handled really carefully as it’s as ancient and fragile as the deep sea scrolls!!

It’s caused some consternation when needing to prove I.D. when it is photo ID they are really looking for but a valid driving license is on the list of acceptable means.
