Motorcycle Check Ride

If you obtained your learner permit prior to 1st April 2016 then you are not required to complete a check ride, although it is strongly encouraged, as the changes to the licence course place more emphasis on roadcraft skills and road rules.

If you obtained your learner permit on or after 2nd April 2016, you will be required to complete a check ride prior to undertaking your licence assessment.

You are only required to do a single check ride, but you can do as many check rides as you like as they provide a great opportunity for new learners to obtain additional rider training and riding advice. Check rides are used to review your riding skills and prepare you for your licence training and assessment. A check ride involves an on-road ride and a group debrief with your trainer afterwards. During your check ride your trainer will guide discussions which will include on-road tactics and strategies, and safe riding skills and behaviours.

There is no minimum waiting period after you have obtained your learner permit before you complete your check ride, but you will need to have successfully completed a check ride at least one month prior to the date of your motorcycle licence assessment.

Courses go ahead regardless of the weather


What You’ll Need

A current Victorian motorcycle learner permit or VicRoads learner permit receipt which you must bring with you on the day of your check ride.
