He's actually right. It appears that you've not done a bike test (have you?), so are limited to a moped (50cc, AM)- but you still need to do a CBT for that IIRC. Alternatively, you can ride a trike (the 79 code) as you have an older car license. You cannot ride a bike - unless you do a CBT and ride a 125 on L plates.

To ride a bigger bike you need to do a CBT, pass the bike theory, then take a DAS (Direct Access) test.

'Restricted to tricycles' seems fairly obvious to me.

You can drive a trike.

Because you got a car license before 2001, you can ride a moped up to 50cc and about 30mph without L plates

If you want to ride an actual motorcycle, you'll need to do at least a CBT, then pass tests to ride anything bigger than a 125.
