“Had a great experience. Instructor was an excellent teacher whilst the group was friendly. Great time. I’ve now done both the Ls and Ps test with SU and I’m keen to do some more lessons on the track someday too.”


Jack, Licensing Course

“Building on basic skills, the course massively increased my ability and my confidence. Decades of road riding helped but this course fills all the gaps I was missing in off road Riding- amazing experience.”


Kate, Adventure Bike Course

“The instructor was excellent – very knowledgeable and down to earth, made you feel very comfortable and had some great advice and I felt confident on the bike. I went away feeling I can ride safely on the road.”


Matthew, Pre Learners Course

How to get my motorcycle licence

The process of obtaining your much-anticipated motorcycle licence varies from state to state. Depending on your experience level, the first introductory course will help you pass the practical component and receive your Learner’s Permit. The second step is to pass your pre-provisional Red P plate practical exam, and optional courses cover more advanced skills such as defensive riding. If you already have an overseas motorcycle licence, you will only need to sit the practical session of the Learner’s course. To learn more about what steps you need to take, select your state below.

FAQs

How long does it take to learn to drive a motorcycle?

The length of time it takes to learn to drive a motorcycle differs depending on various factors, such as your learning journey and which Australian state you are undertaking your training in. You don’t need any previous knowledge or skills to enrol in our beginner’s motorcycle training course; you don’t even need to own a bike already! By the end of our Learner Permit training, you’ll know all the essentials to keep practising on your own until you feel ready to go on the road. Browse our different locations to find the course that best suits your needs, and let us help you stay upright.

How can I pass my motorcycle test easily?

The Learner Permit courses are designed for beginners with no previous experience. While knowing how to ride a bicycle might help your sense of balance and understanding how clutch and gears work is beneficial to operating a manual motorbike, neither is a prerequisite. If our experienced trainers determine you need more practice before passing the practical component of your L-plates test, they will ask you to come back for complimentary one-on-one sessions. Alternatively, you can book a private motorcycle training lesson or a Learn To Ride, Head Start Course to get ahead. Our one-on-one lessons can also help you perfect your skills before sitting your P-plates test.
