Just checked on Gov site 79(3) means restricted to tricycle. If as you say he passed his test well before Jan 2013 , has his license been reissued. The only way i can see is to take his full bike test.

The 79(3) is in the cat A which is full bike but restricted to tricycle means just that, you can,t ride a two wheeled motorcycle only a three wheeler. The reason i asked about a re issue is i spoke to a bloke just the other day who for whatever reason had had his license revoked and when they re issued it there was no 79(3) on it as it had been re issued after jan 2013.Apart from that i can only suggest you try a conversation with DVLA, best of luck.

mal if he has a B1 on his licence from before Jan 2013 he should retain that as that is tricycle if memory serves me right my photo licence was updated in march 2013 and it still has the B1 on it
Billy when he sends off for his licence to update tell him to photocopy his old licence OR just don't send it in and just say he mislaid it as as they sometimes don't always put your full entitlements on and then if any cockups he has proof
