Cannot see that. Bike learners has an added section on motorcycle controls that a normal EB learners does not have

I think learners license is car..........or bike specific.
Within the learners test, they have bike specific or car specific controls questions

Stupid traffic cop might not know/notice the difference when presented to them.

Can only apply for bike learners when 16 years old , valid  for 2 years to ride a 125 cc bike  only, no passengers , at 18 can apply for over 125 cc licence . if full 125 licence recieved you need to do it all over again to get big bike licence , For car driver can apply at 17 years and 6 month old to get learners . but not for bike !
Ps could never ride a bike on a car licence .

Sterling advice that!  :thumleft:
If you throw a tantrum and call them misleading liars, hopefully in a full shop, they'll think twice about doing such again - at least if they want to be trading next month also that is....

used to get this question a lot at the bike shop.


in some countries in Europe, if you have a car licence, it covers a scooter,  But jammer, here in RSA,  car licence is for car and bike is for bike and bigger than 125 scooter needs big bike licence.

In the UK a car license allows you to ride a MOPED - 50cc ......in SA you have a fat chance.....  :imaposer:

Legally nope, but I was pulled over many years ago and presented my car licence a traffic cop while driving the bike - he let me drive on no questions asked #justsaying
