Safety on motorbikes and scooters

Training courses and events to promote motorbike and scooter safety. 

Training courses

Too many riders are crashing and being injured on the roads. Statistics show the majority are not due to other vehicles or the conditions, but to rider error, handling or observation. These crashes are avoidable.

Book a Rider Training Course and receive up to a $50 subsidy from the cost of this course. To find out more and to register for a course visit the Ride to Live website(external link).

Competency-based training and assessment

From 1 March 2014, if you want to get your motorcycle licence, you'll be able to choose between the current driver testing regime and the new competency-based assessment scheme, or a combination of the two.
