Getting a motorbike licence
You must have held a provisional, P1, P2 or open car (class C) licence for at least 1 year in the last 5 years before you can apply for a motorbike licence. This means motorbike riders have at least 2 years on-road driving experience before riding solo.
Your first motorbike licence will be for a class RE. You can apply for your class RE provisional or open licence through Q-Ride or by passing the Q-SAFE practical riding test.
