Help scooter töff question

Hi everyone
Hope someone can help

My Swiss boyfriend is doing his 125 cc scooter license in a few weeks. In the meanwhile he's driving around with an L on his scooter töff honda sh125

He wants to take me for a ride around as it's a two seater ..i have a helmet and a UK driving license.but I don't have a scooter license.

CAN I RIDE BEHIND HIM ON HIS SCOOTER?

Thanks .. That's ridiculous because it's not like I'm driving it. Weekend plans busted.

Ok so when he gets his license I can sit behind him even if I don't have a scooter license?

Of course (unless the scooter doesn´t allow for 2 persons). There are limitations when you have an L plate.

Re: Help scooter töff question

Fairly standard practice at least across Europe that a learner rider cannot take a pillion. Whether toy have a licence or not had no bearing whatsoever on the learner's ability to control the machine south all the extra weight behind him.

It makes sense that the pillion with a full license is allowed to ride behind a learner to teach him. I’ve seen instructors here ride behind learners.

When I did my license in the UK the instructor was on his own bike when we got out onto the open road with one way radio communication. (We had to tap our helmet for repeat instructions)

The examiner followed me around in a car, again with one way radio communication.
