Getting an R motorcycle licence

A class R motorcycle is a 2 or 3 wheel motorcycle with unlimited engine size.

To learn to ride an R motorcycle or to upgrade from an RE provisional or open licence to an R licence you must:

If your Q-Ride training provider notifies your Q-Ride competency declaration to the Department of Transport and Main Roads electronically you may be eligible to upgrade your licence online.

If you are issued a paper Q-Ride competency declaration or you are not eligible to upgrade your licence online, you must apply for your class R licence at a driver licence issuing transport and motoring customer service centre.

Note: If you got your RE provisional or open licence before 1 October 2016 you can learn to ride an R motorcycle or upgrade to an R licence after you have held your RE provisional or open licence for at least 1 year.
