Does category B automatically cover cat W?

    Is category W included under B? I ask as the RSA did not give me W on my new photocard licence.

    All I has is classes B and AM. Test passed in 1997.

    It is covered, but if it wasn't on your old licence, that might the reason.

    If it was on old one, then I would give them a ring

    W was there until 2007 and then disappeared as it was subsumed into B along with M according to the white piece of paper.

    It is no big deal as I very unlikely ever to need it.

    What white piece of paper? I passed my test in 2008 and have W on my licence?:confused:

    M is not given with a B license by default, and hasn't been for some time. It is a completely separate theory test, and driving test.

    I think it is down to some grandfathering clauses.

    The pink licence I was issued in 2007 had no place for W on it. The white insert stated that W was included in B.

    M was issued to B holders until 2001 afaik.

    Oct 2006 was when M was removed from B.

    Anyone before then would continue to hold it?

    Yes, but check with the RSA to be sure as I think I read something about loosing entitlements if they aren't on your licence for a certain amount of time.
