Default What do I need to ride a moped in spain

Can I drive a moped in spain with my provisional licence? I have just passed my CBT in the UK for riding up to a 125. I do not hold a UK full driving licence

No. UK provisional licences are not valid in Spain.

You will need a crash helmet.

you can ride up to a 125 on uk full car licence.The driving licence that you hold and the codes on the back of it will determine the kind of vehicles you are permitted to drive by law.The vast majority of drivers on the roads will hold a category B driving licence, which qualifies them for category AM and entitles them to ride a moped or scooter of up to 50cc as long as the vehicle cannot exceed 45 kph.Once a driver has held a category B driving licence for more than 3 years, they are legally allowed to ride motorcycles, scooters or mopeds in the A1 category of up to 125cc with a maximum power of 15hp. From the age of 18, you are permitted to ride a motorcycle over 125cc, but your licence must include Category A. For this you will need to take some lessons and will need to take a motorcycle test.

For motorcycles over 500cc, you will need to be at least 20 years of age and hold a category A licence.

The OP states they do not hold a full car licence only a provisional motorbike licence!

Not to the OP. He hasn’t got a valid licence so he can’t drive a moped. Simples.
