Re: Motorbike

If you have full UK m/bike license you can ride any size m/bike.
You also need full license for anything over 90 c/c in tr.
Hope this helps pete

Re: Motorbike

Did you pass test in UK to ride more than a 125cc ?. As if not I think the law stil applies in Turkey that you can't ride more than a 125cc?. Not sure as l passed full test back in 81. A lot diff rules now and from Jan 2015 even new rules come out .

Re: Motorbike

I have full uk bike license and had a CBR 600, I was told by the Fethiye traffic police when I went to get my 125 scooter in Turkey that I could legally ride any cc in Turkey, so I asked about the other half and if it was ok for him to ride the scooter too, no uk license, not even the CBT and the traffic police said yes ok, but he was not allowed to ride anything bigger.

Now we all know that almost every area's traffic police, customs, tourist police ALL have a different interpretation of what the law actually is, but the other half ended up being on the scooter more than I did and never had a problem when stopped........but it's probably different where you are today, and maybe will different again tomorrow lol

Re: Motorbike

Sounds about right. What would worry me would be what happens if you have a half way decent accident on a bigger bike. My current bike is 1400 cc ,so bad enough if having a accident but if totally on a full bike lic I would feel happier.

Re: Motorbike

i ride a 150 with 'eyes' on buying something bigger.....my uk Full licence is sufficient to satisfy the law here....İ took it to a 'driving test course and the boss said it was ok...and he didnt suggest i even exchange it for a Turkish licence!.....i often get stopped for minor infringements and have never been ticketed or told to get a Turkish licence!...as soon as the see the 'EU' logo they are content!

Re: Motorbike

As has been said many times before, the interpretation by Traffic Police is interesting mainly because of the amusement caused by their polarised interpretations; more important will be the interpretation by an insurance company that wants to avoid paying out on a big claim.

Thumbs up Motorbike

We are based in Bodrum had a client that was thinking of taking a test for the same reason, ın order to sit the test you must change the licence to a Turkish one, which we did then found out that he did not need to sit the exam cause the licence covers motorbikes. In Turkey if you have a motorbike licence you can drive any size, there are no limitations as to what you can drive.
