On March 19, 2016 Stage 2 of the new VicRoads Motorcycle Graduated Licensing System (M-GLS) commenced. The M-GLS was introduced in order to provide new riders with an appropriate level of training for on-road riding.
Under the M-GLS, in order to obtain a motorcycle learners permit you must complete a standardised and compulsory 2 Day Learner Permit course.
The new learner permit course has been designed to extend the current emphasis on basic skills in motorcycle handling and also include higher-order riding skills such as rider awareness, judgment and decision making. Practical training will now include off-road training range exercises as well as on-road training.
On-road training and assessment will confirm that you have the necessary riding skills to control and manoeuvre a motorcycle safely in real traffic and on typical road conditions.
You can find more detailed information about the M-GLS and how Stage 2 will affect new riders here.
Upon successful completion of all learners permit assessments, the VicRoads Assessment fee of $19.80 will be payable to Armstrongs on behalf of VicRoads. The VicRoads Learners Permit fee of $26.00 will then only be payable for applicants who have previously held a Victorian Motorcycle Learners Permit that may have expired or been cancelled. Any applicant who obtains the Motorcycle Learners Permit for the first time is not required to pay this VicRoads issue fee. Armstrongs will then issue a paper Learners Permit receipt which is to be used as evidence of holding a valid Victorian Motorcycle Learners Permit. VicRoads will mail out a plastic Learners Permit which may take up to 8 weeks.
† A weekend course is considered any course where one or both days of the course are conducted on a weekend.
All training is conducted prior to any testing, maximising the training benefits to aid in the successful completion of the learner's permit course.
