What licence
do I need?

If you’re already licensed to ride a moped your driving licence will show as category P.

The new rules will not affect you, but any new licences issued to you will show categories AM and Q, as well as category P. This means you will also be allowed to ride 2 or 3-wheeled mopeds with a top speed of 50 km/h.

Below is a summary. Riders should follow the government website https://www.gov.uk/ride-motorcycle-moped for more detail.
