Motorcycle Licence Course

Step 3 – Go For Your Motorcycle Licence

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 licence you must first have obtained a motorcycle Learners Permit and have completed a Check Ride. If you haven't obtained a Learners Permit or completed a Check Ride yet, you'll need to do this first and you can find out more about how to obtain your Learners Permit and complete a Check Ride here. After that you can undertake a motorcycle licence course during which you need to complete both an off-road and on-road assessment. The off-road training range assessment will assess your ability to ride through curves, change paths, brake and ride slowly. The on-road assessment will be used to assess your observation skills, speed management, road positioning, application of road rules, and motorcycle control.

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.
