L plate (learner) requiremnet in the UK

I know this is an old thread, but I just thought I should correct this...
Learners (on L-plates) can only ride up to 125cc bikes. Pre-2013 rules state that upon passing your test for a full licence, you can ride any bike but it must be restricted to 33bhp for two years. After the two year restriction period from your pass date, you can then ride anything with no restrictions. If you were 21+ years old, you could do the DAS - Direct Access Scheme - and pay extra for some more training, do another test on a bigger cc bike and bypass the two year restriction period.
Post-January 2013, you can only ride the same category bike of that which you pass your test on, i.e. pass on a 125, can only ride up to 125cc, pass on a 600, can ride anything up to 600cc but it must be restricted to 47bhp and output no more than 94bhp from factory and not exceed a certain power to weight ratio. Then, after two years from passing, you have to do another test to be able to ride anything with no restrictions. If you're 24+ years old, you can do the DAS.
Pre-2013 test you could do at 17 years old, post-January 2013 test you can do after you're 19 years old.

It's shit, I know. So does everyone under 19 years old in the UK. haha that's why I rushed and did mine two months before the rules changed!
