    4. Completing a Check Ride

    5. Not being subject to a Fines Victoria licence sanction

  2. Book and complete your assessments

Booking and Completing Your Assessments

To get a motorcycle licence in Victoria you'll need to:

  • Pass an eyesight test

  • Pass a hazard perception test (not required if you already have a driver licence)

  • Supply proof of identity

  • Complete a Check Ride and this has to be done at least 1 month before your assessment

  • Complete your motorcycle licence assessment

Make sure you also bring protective clothing to your assessment including; a long sleeved shirt and pants, closed in footwear (boots or runners), protective eyewear e.g sunglasses, wet weather riding gear, an approved high visibility vest and approved motorcycle helmet. You can also bring your own motorcycle to the assessment but it must be fully registered, roadworthy and a learner approved vehicle

The assessment is delivered in the same way across all training centres across Victoria. To book your assessment, get in touch with an accredited training and testing provider.
