can anyone explain the procedures/requirements to get a license over there? I have a speech coming up in class on why us dumb americans should adopt a similar program to educate and improve rider's abilities, and eliminate 16 year olds buying litre bikes...cheers.

Its quite a complex system,

If you are over 21 you can go for direct access and ride any bike provided you pass a theory then practical exam. The practical isnt that easy to make sure your at a good standard before being let loose on anything you like.

If your under 21 you are restricted to bikes with a maximum of 33 bhp for your first 2 years riding.

more info available here http://www.dsa.gov.uk/Bikes.asp
