To obtain the Victorian Motorcycle Learner Permit you will need to successfully complete a two-day course.
This course is designed to prepare riders for riding on the road. To help you prepare for your test we recommend you read the Victorian Rider handbook.
Your two-day learner course will include:
- Eyesight test
- Learner permit knowledge test
- On-road and off-road assessment
The motorcycle knowledge test is a paper-based test consisting of 32 questions. You will need to answer 25 questions correctly to pass (78% pass mark).
You will receive coaching in safe riding techniques and be progressively trained and assessed. The training is held at an off-road training centre. There will be two assessments involving on and off road at the end of Day 2.
The learner permit is valid for 15-months and you may obtain a licence before your Learner Permit expires. Otherwise, you will have to complete another set of written and practical tests in order to obtain your licence. The statutory authority to issue licences in Victoria is VicRoads or the Victoria Road Corporation.
