Obtaining a Motorcycle License in Victoria

The motorcycle licensing process is  structured to ensure that riders are skilled and safe on the roads. RideTek Trains to you to be safe and competent.

While training and assessments provide basic knowledge, real-world experience is invaluable for safety.

You can apply for a licence if you are at least 18 years old and have held a current Victorian or interstate motorcycle learner permit for a continuous period of three months immediately before the motorcycle licence is granted.

To obtain a motorcycle licence in Victoria, you must be at least 18 years old and have held a motorcycle learner permit continuously for three months before applying. Here is an overview of the process:

  1. Book Your Motorcycle Licence Assessment: Schedule your assessment through The RideTek Online Booking Link.

  2. Provide Evidence of Identity: Bring the required documents to your assessment. You will receive an email from RideTek explaining all your requirements

  3. Complete the Assessment: Pass the assessment and pay for your licence.

  4. Receive Your Motorcycle Licence: Once you’ve completed the assessment and paid the fee, you’ll receive your a receipt confirming you have succeeded in your assessment which will suffice until  licence is forwarded to you from VicRoads.

In more Detail

  • Are you 18 years or older
  • a Victorian resident
  • have an Australian motorcycle learner permit for a continuous period of at least three months immediately before you apply or have held a motorcycle licence or hold, or have previously held an overseas motorcycle licence
  • Have you completed a Check Ride (see below for more information)
  • You must not be  subject to a Fines Victoria licence suspension. Check with Fines Victoria.
  • Are you medically fit to ride. If you’ve got a medical condition or take prescribed medication which may affect your fitness to ride, you’ll need to provide the relevant medical reports to VicRoads before you book your assessment.

If you’re 18 or older and have held a current Victorian or interstate motorcycle learner permit for three consecutive months, you can apply for a motorcycle licence. You can also apply if you’ve held an interstate or overseas motorcycle licence in the past five years (as long as you’re at least 18 and your licence isn’t suspended). Overseas motorcycle learner permits are not recognized.

You may also need to pass a Hazard Perception Test if you don’t already have a driver’s licence.

Since learner permits cannot be renewed, make sure to book your licence assessment at least four weeks before your permit expires.

What is the Check Ride?

After you have successfully completed your learners permit you’ll need to complete an on-road practical skills check (also known as a Check Ride) before you can book in for your motorcycle license assessment.

RideTek recommends booking your Check Ride after you have a decent amount of experience of road riding, around the six month time frame. This should give you the opportunity to have sufficient training.
