  • be at least 120cc and no more than 125cc
  • not have more than 11kw power (14.6bhp)
  • be capable of at least 55mph (90km/h)

Category A2

This is a motorcycle without a side car that:

  • is at least 395cc
  • has a power output between 20 kW and 35 kW (26bhp and 46.6 bhp)

There's no upper engine size limit, but:

  • the power to weight ratio must not exceed 0.2kW/kg
  • it must not be derived from a motorcycle of more than double its power

DVSA will accept evidence from manufacturers or official importers that a specific model of motorcycle meets these rules. DVSA will publish this information where it applies to a number of machines of a specific type.

Category A

This is a motorcycle without a side car that must:

  • be at least 595cc
  • have a power output of at least 40kw (53.6bhp)

DVSA will accept evidence from manufacturers or official importers that a specific model of motorcycle meets these rules. DVSA will publish this information where it applies to a number of machines of a specific type.

Changes to category A from 2018

From the end of 2018:

  • the power output will change to at least 50 kW
  • a minimum kerb weight of 180 kg will apply

Machines affected by this change in minimum power are shown as A*. These machines will not be able to be used for test from the end of 2018.

This change is still subject to EU approval.

Machines not on the list and machines restricted to meet the rules

You can use machines not on this list or machines that have been restricted to meet the rules to be used if you give certified proof of compliance or restriction to the examiner.

This must be a certificate or on headed paper from an official source such as a main dealer, official importer or recognised specialist in restricting vehicles.

Dyno certificates alone are not acceptable.
