Hi, we are English and have moved to Lazio, and I am wondering if anyone has any experience in buying a small motorcycle for example a 125cc, and can I carry a pillion, I have a full UK driving license and also have residency in Lazio, thanks in advance!

Well unless things have changed very recently you can ride up to 125cc on a full car licence. If possible I would go to a local ACI to ask about a pillion passenger. But seeing the number of small bikes and APE with passengers I suspect there is no problem. Anything above 125cc needs a bike licence.

What's a pillion?

The rules got changed a few years back. I think for a 125 which is considered a real motorcycle you need a bike license. The smaller 50s I think can still be ridden with a B car license.

Glancing at the ACI website I think you need at least an A1

I think the wording was up to 125cc and limited to 11kW. Your obviously too young Nick to not know the term "pillion passenger"
