As a class RE licence holder (provisional, probationary or open), you can also learn to ride a class R motorcycle if you have held a class RE licence (provisional, probationary or open) for at least 1 year. You must ride under the direction of a person who currently holds and has held a class R open type driver licence for at least 1 year.

Does your motorcycle qualify as an approved motorcycle?

Take your motorcycle registration number to your nearest transport and motoring customer service centre to find out if your registered motorcycle will qualify as a LAM Scheme approved motorcycle.

This vehicle check can only be done on motorcycles registered in Queensland.
