What is the best way for a UK national to get qualified to use a vespa in Italy? I wanted to share my plan here, before spending too much time and money.
Me: 51 years old. I completed a CBT course about 10 years ago but never took things further so have never owned a vespa. I'm currently UK resident, but planning to apply for Italian residency. I don't speak Italian so thought it might be a lot easier to get qualified in the UK first.
I was thinking about getting a Category A licence in the UK, then using it in Italy.
So that would be another CBT, the theory test, then the Category A motorcycle (24 or over) test. At least that way I can ride a motorcycle of any size, although the plan is to get a Vespa 300 something.
I think that if I do this, then once I've moved there I have to convert the licence to an Italian one within a year? I'm not sure of the process for doing this, so not sure if it requires further testing or just submitting some paperwork?
Just wanted to sound this all out in case anyone has had a similar experience and has advice.
