Rider Training Scheme
If you live in a declared area, you need to complete the Motorcycle Rider Training Scheme in order to get your rider licence.
What is the Motorcycle Rider Training Scheme?
The Motorcycle Rider Training Scheme is a training and testing program specifically designed to help people gain basic riding skills, whilst learning to ride on the road.
There are two levels of training:
The training includes both on and off-road activities.
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 area 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 develop your 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.
