DO THE THE RIGHT MOTORCYCLE TRAINING COURSE THE FIRST TIME!
The Graduated Licensing Scheme for Motorcycles (M-GLS)
The M-GLS final roll-out was completed in Victoria on 2nd April 2016.
This scheme was developed over a two year period by Vicroads in conjunction with the University of New South Wales, and other Traffic Safety authorities.
The scheme was developed to provide a comprehensive and uniform training course content for motorcyclists, in an attempt to ensure that safety skills and attitudes are in place from the very first time that a rider ventures out into “real world” riding situations.
One of the most noticeable changes with the new system is that the whole training process places a greater emphasis on riders being able to make responsible, informed decisions about their riding behavior in traffic, affording them greater safety as riders.
The M-GLS consists of training and testing stages which are now mandatory for new riders, view all courses here or select from the following:
OUR MOTORCYCLE TRAINING COURSES
Optional Discretionary Courses. Training for riders who hold a current Learner Permit, or Licence but have not ridden for an extended period.
One-on-One Roadcraft Training Designed to help current learner permit and/or licence holders to further develop their defensive skills in traffic.
MOTORCYCLE LICENCE ASSESSMENT
Motorcycle Licence Assessment (MLA) (Licence Issued Upon Completion) This is the final mandatory stage of rider development required under the new M-GLS.

Check Ride (CR) The Check Ride stage, is also mandatory, can be undertaken at any time following the issue of your learner permit.

YOUR PATHWAY TO A MOTORCYCLE LICENCE WITH RIDE-TEK MTA PTY LTD
Recently the Victorian Government legislated some major changes to Motorcycle Licencing in Victoria.
It is now mandatory that everyone wishing to ride a motorcycle in Victoria must undergo a 2 day Learner Permit Course (MPA), regardless of any previous riding experience. This course consists of a full 15 hours of training and testing conducted on our training range and “on-road”. Successful completion of this course and testing would result in you being issued with your motorcycle learner permit.
Ride-Tek MTA provide the motorcycle and all safety equipment required for this course. The MPA course covers all aspects of safe, responsible riding including all practical handling skills and roadcraft, including sound decision-making skills as a rider. Whether you are a complete novice or have had some previous experience, this course is designed to prepare you safely as a road rider.
Your motorcycle learner permit is valid for 15 months, allowing the time for you to purchase your first motorcycle and to further develop your skills.
The next step towards your motorcycle Licence would be to take part in a 3.5 hour Check Ride Course (CR). This course is conducted partly on our trainingrange (50 minutes) and “on-road” and focuses on your hazard avoidance and roadcraft skills. This course is excellent preparation for your final step in obtaining your full motorcycle Licence.
The CR course will provide you with supervised experience in riding varying suburban roads, including multi-lane roads, two way traffic, curves and bends and controlled intersections. This course provides greater understanding of the major collision types which affect motorcyclists and how to identify and respond to those hazards.
It is preferred that you would provide your own roadworthy LAMS approved motorcycle for the Check Ride, however we have motorcycles available for your use if you do not have a road-registered, roadworthy motorcycle.
The final step is your Motorcycle Licence Assessment (MLA). This step is available to you one month (minimum) after you have completed your Check Ride Course.
The MLA consists of 1hr 15mins of riding assessment, mainly carried out “on-road”, following a brief diagnostic ride on our training range. The assessment focuses on your roadcraft and road safety skills in traffic, and is purely an assessment (no coaching provided), however if you require further training or coaching prior to undertaking your MLA assessment, we have some options for you, so please do not hesitate to contact us to discuss your requirements, we are always available to help you with your riding.
