Getting an RE motorcycle licence

An RE licence holder can ride a learner approved motorcycle.

There are a few steps to complete to upgrade your RE learner licence to an RE provisional or open licence.

  1. You need to pass the motorcycle hazard perception test. From 1 July 2021 you must pass the motorcycle hazard perception test before you take the Q-Ride restricted (RE) course or Q-SAFE riding test.
  2. You need to hold your RE learner for at least 90 days (or at least 1 year if you got an exemption from the pre-learner course). Check my Q-Ride course eligibility to see when you are eligible.
  3. After you have held your RE learner for 90 days, you need to complete the Q-Ride restricted (RE) course or pass the Q-SAFE riding test.
  4. When you complete these requirements, you can apply for your class RE provisional or open licence.

If your Q-Ride training provider directly records your Q-Ride competency declaration online with the Department of Transport and Main Roads, 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 RE licence at a driver licence issuing transport and motoring customer service centre.
