What is progression?
1. You can use progression to move from one licence category to another.
2. Progression requires you to do additional IBT training, IBT module 5 and does not require an additional government test.
3. It can also be used to go from A1 to A2 but is not commonly done. Better to do one test on an A2 and use progression to A.

Must a bike be restricted for 2 years after I pass my test?

Do I need to move through each category?
