  3. @mr160: We all have a licence! The EC says that a B driver's licence can also be valid for motorcycles up to 125cc. Europe, where are you going? In Belgium, only national B licences are accepted. Luxembourg, only national are accepted. France cannot state an official message on this topic. In the Switzerland (where EU licences are issued) eight driving lessions without exam are necessary for a full A1 licence, when the candidate obtained his B licence before. Slovakia only accepts national licences. Austria only accepts national licences, because a special code inside the licence indicates that the candidate has completed six driving lessons. After some lessons, Hungary issues a full A1 licence without exam (for holders of a B licence). I did not get an answer from Poland, polish citizen are allowed to ride 125cc since august 2014. The Unites Kingom only accepts national licences (but I am not sure). Switzerland and Hungary did a good job for their citizens, because the A1 licence is valid in Europe. Italy, Latvia, Portugal, Spain and the Czech Republic also did their job, because they accept licences from the EU. Austria
  4. It depends on national law, what can be ridden in a country. The Federal Ministry for Transport, Innovation and Technology of Austria requested from all EU members, if the austrian B driver's licence will be accepted for driving a scooter with 125cc in the respective country. The answers can be seen here (bottom of this page): http://www.oeamtc.at/portal/leichtmotorrad-bis-125-ccm+2500+1052432 The austrian ministry for transport got a commitment from Italy, Latvia, Portugal, Spain and the Czech Republic that the austrian B driver's license is accepted to drive a motorcycle up to 125cc, but with some national restrictions. So I think that all EU driver's licences are accepted in these countries (with national restrictions). In my opinion, riding 125cc in France is also allowed by french law, but the french government did not response to the inquery from Austria. Of course, the national restrictions in France must be fulfilled. In France, the driver must attest his practice with 125cc within five years before 01/01/2011 by insurance documents - this is exactly what the french law says. Greetings from Austria

  6. Good News! Do you mean the Vespaclub France http://www.vespaclubfrance.fr/ and its new President Delphine (see organigram)? Greetings from Austria
  7. Hi! The Federal Ministry for Transport, Innovation and Technology of Austria requested from the French government, if the austrian B driver's licence obtained before 19/01/2013 will be accepted for driving a scooter with 125cc in France in the case, the driver can attest his practice with 125cc within five years before 01/01/2011 by insurance documents - this is exactly what the french law says. - I have no answer yet but I think, the answer could also help Belgians. Another way would be to start an inquery via the European Commission: http://europa.eu/youreurope/advice/index_en.htm Greetings from Austria

  10. First I thought, that belgian drivers were allowed to go to France because this is their only realistic way to go outside Belgium and they have already asked for it. (there is no chance with Germany or the Netherlands). I thought that I could use this as argument for me to go to France. Now it is vice versa Apart from that, it is a good approach to "internationalize" the B drivers license for 125cc (within the EU). Greetings from Austria
  11. There are the RACB http://www.racb.com/ and the FMB-BMB http://www.fmb-bmb.be/ which may have good contacts to the belgian government - so you can also ask these organisations. Second, I hope that I can bring good news from the french government and that it will be easier for you to ask the belgian government and that it is easier for the belgian government to ask the french government, too. But somebody must do the initial impetus. YOU! Greetings form Austria
  12. News: The austrian ministry for transport requests information from the french government, under which conditions an austrian citizen is allowed to drive in France with his B driver's license. As I said before, the austrian ministry for transport got a commitment from Italy, Latvia, Portugal, Spain and the Czech Republic that the austrian B driver's license is accepted to drive a motorcycle up to 125cc, but with some national restrictions. I hope that the french government will give an explanation about driving 125cc in France as a foreigner and I will put the answer here. Greetings from Austria
