Bike License?

What countries out there can I ride a bike in using just my car liciense? Or where is it best to get a license that is globaly recognised?

By gettting a license I mean a simple test that proves you can actually ride, not a huge buch of theoretical pages to sit through, and then be able to ride any size bike when you want..... not just piddle around on a scooter for a year before you can ride a 125cc.

Anyone any ideas?

Cheers

DB

Anyone else know of anymore places?

If you dont have time to sit the test like ...

Ah faking documents brings back warm fuzzy memories of wet printer ink and the ozone smell of the Laminating machine.

He he. I drove from California to Panama and back during 6 month, at that point I only had a driving licence for a car. You can do I licence in California quiet easy, or buy one in Hoduras for 10 dollar. While you are there, throw another 10er for lorry cartificate. Good luck with youre projects
