Motorbike SE Asia trip no full license & insurance
Due to several reasons i cannot take my full motorbike test before i travel out to Vietnam on 8th January. I have a standard car driving license and international driving license and can take a CBT test if need be. I had planned to travel by motorbike down Vietnam from Hanoi, across to the rest of SE Asia. My main query is about safety but also on border crossings and whether a lack of full motorbike license will be a problem and without these, what a typical fine would be if stopped by the police?
I've traveled and hired some motorbikes in SE Asia before but never with insurance or a license and only had one crash which was my fault but i just want to put the question out there on how many others have done the same thing and what you recommend? I am a very safe and cautious driver, intend to wear some good clothing and a UK helmet if i do this trip in full, or just rent and do partial trips in each country but i really want to do some motorbike journeys and so would appreciate any advice, tips, stories and help.
