Hi.  We just finished the course at the motoecole in mandelieu.  My boyfriend does not speak french but the instructers were wonderful.  He had to do a 7 hour course to obtain the 125 license.  6 hours practical and 1 hour watching a video.  He passed.  The course was around 300 euros.  Hope this helps

It used to be that you could ride up to a 125cc bike if you had a full driving licence and had not passed any specific bike test. Above 125cc you needed to pass a bike course/test.  If you do not have a full driving licence you can ride up to a 50cc bike by passing a basic course/test at a local bike learning centre of which there are plenty about.  You might find something about it in the Info pages here in AngloInfo.

I was looking into doing a bike test in France but not to sure on how to go about it.
Do you know how to go about getting a French bike licence or if you need one all together?

Kind Regards
