Rider Training Scheme
If you live in an area where rider training is available (a declared area), you must attend and successfully complete rider training before you can be issued with a rider licence. It's specifically designed to help you gain basic riding skills before you ride on the road.
To find out whether you live in a declared area, check the list of approved training centres for one near you, or call Roads and Maritime on 13 22 13.
Even if you live in an are where there are no training centres (undeclared areas), we encourage you to attend a rider training course if possible, as the course will help you build good riding skills.

You need to complete the pre-learner course to get your learner rider licence, if you live in an area where training is available. The course is designed for people with no previous motorcycle riding experience.
You need to complete the pre-provisional course to move up to your P1 rider licence, if you live in an area where training is available. The course includes a practical riding test which you need to pass before you can apply for your P1.
