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.

The VicRoads Learners Permit fee of $24.20 is not included in the course fee. Upon successful completion of the 2 Day Learners Permit course students will need to pay the issue fee to Armstrongs on behalf of VicRoads. 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 6 weeks.
As at 1 July 2019, the VicRoads Learners Permit Fee will increase to $25.10 and an additional VicRoads Assessment Fee of $17.60 will also be payable to Armstrongs on behalf of VicRoads upon the successful completion of a learner permit assessment. Upon payment of the VicRoads Assessment Fee and VicRoads Learners Permit Fee, Armstrongs will issue a VicRoads paper learner permit receipt which is to be used as evidence of holding a valid Victorian Learner Permit. VicRoads will mail out a plastic Learner Permit which may take up to 6 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.
