My brothers got a new Peugeot 50cc and yes you need to take your CBT if your driving license was issued after a certain date (can't remember the date but it definatly excludes me, so probably you aswell may have been 2001).
As your are 17 you could get a 125, and as far as im aware you wouldn't need L plates, although you would need to take the cbt, maybe bike test for 125cc.
Insurance is quite steep on the moped as well, i ve got a decent mountain bike so Im going to use that!
EDIT: adjusted the compression on that photo to get it below the 200kb and a decent size and it looks crap!
