Learner approved motorcycles (LAM Scheme)

As an RE licence holder (learner, provisional, and open), you can ride a learner approved motorcycle.

The learner approved motorcycle scheme (LAM Scheme) gives you access to a range of motorcycles and scooters that are appropriate to your  level of experience.

Get more information about motorcycle licence and engine size rules.

0–250mL category

All models, up to 250mL, including mopeds, are eligible for use on an RE licence and are included in the LAM Scheme. Individual makes and models are not listed.

However, the following 250mL motorcycles are excluded from the LAM Scheme:

  • Suzuki RGV250
  • Kawasaki KR250 (KR-1 and KR1s models)
  • Honda NSR250
  • Yamaha TZR250
  • Aprilia RS250

Conditionally registered motorcycles which have not been approved under Australian Design Rules certification are also excluded.

251mL–660mL category

The models listed in this table are eligible for use on an RE licence and are included in the LAM scheme.

Motorcycles produced before 1960 and do not exceed 660mL will be included within the scheme but do not appear in the following table.

Individually built (custom made) motorcycles will not be considered for inclusion in the LAM Scheme.

As an RE provisional or open licence holder you can learn to ride an R motorcycle if you have held an RE provisional or open licence for at least 2 years. You must ride under the direction of a person who currently holds and has held an R open licence for at least 1 year.

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