HiThank you for your question and welcome to Just Answer. I will try to help with this. Please RATE my answer OK SERVICE or above.My colleague asked me to look at this and didn't see it so I'm sorry for the delay.I presume you mean that he will ride on a CBT licence? So a full car licence and a CBT?
Yes , if he needs to - he will be back here for 3 weeks first and could take a CBT but won't have time to take the rest to get afull motorbike licence.We know he cannot carry a passenger in the UK
No, you cannot carry a pillion in the UK at all without having the full licence. But I ride a 650 Susuki and I rode a 125 CC for years on a CBT and you would not want to even attempt carrying a pillion. They are weak enough even with one person. In a nutshell, his UK entitlements allow him to ride in any member state of the EU in accordance with those entitlements.So if he only uses his car licence then he will have to ride a restricted 50cc moped. If he does his CBT in the UK then he can ride a 125 cc without a pillion anywhere in the EU.If he wants to carry a pillion on a 125 then he will have to do his full licence.Obviously he can take the Italian or French test to obtain different entitlements but I imagine that is not an attractive option for him.For what its worth, the direct licence will take about 4-5 days if he does a crash course and he only has to do that once for life.Please rate my answer with OK SERVICE or more and then I will continue for free.
