Can you ride a moped if you have a full driving licence?

My son holds a full driving licence from 2005. Can he ride a 50cc moped without L-plates and without doing a CBT? Many thanks.

I'm afraid not. You can only ride a moped (up to 50cc) without L plates (and without taking a CBT course) if you passed your driving test before 1 February 2001.

Would you recommend a scooter or a Honda CB125 and, if the latter, which variant would you suggest? I'd use the bike for a daily 60-mile commute which includes both motorway and central London.
I'm thinking of getting a moped for my 16-year-old son, putting the insurance in his name so he gets a year's no claims towards his car insurance at 17. Would this work?
