I recently moved to Blagnac from the UK, May 2020, I've been considering buying a 125cc scooter for fun and trips to work. I dont have a 1A category UK licence, how can I add this category so I can drive the said scooter & if I managed to update my licence can I legally ride a 125cc bike and for how long before I have to site my bike test.

If you are permanently resident in France, you will need to exchange the UK license for a French one.

How do I exchange my driving licence, I've only lived in Blagnac since May 2020, I keep being told I can't change my licence because of Brexit

You can go to your sous-préfecture in Blagnac and enquire or look at service publique.fr. Do you know if you are permanently resident in France you will need a carte de séjour? Lots of useful info on RIFT, Remain in France Together - FB. (you´ll be required to answer some questions to join the group)
