Before undertaking the Motorcycle Licence Assessment it is compulsory to undertake a 3.5 hour on road riding assessment known as a Check Ride

The check ride consists of 1.5 hours of off road skills assessment and review of learner course.

Riders are then taken out on the road where their riding ability is assessed and considered viable to proceed to the Licence Assessment which will be conducted on a separate day. Riders are encouraged to use their own bikes for the Check Ride.

A Check ride can be undertaken before you have held your learners permit for three months.  We recommend that you do 2 months of riding before coming in for your Check Ride.

* Please note a rider will not be taken out for the on road component if their skills are considered inadequate for road riding.


A rider needs to have held their learner permit for a minimum of 3 months and completed a check ride at least 1 month earlier.
The Licence Assessment consists of 20 minute off road skills assessment and a 40 minute on road assessment. 
Riders are encouraged to use their own bikes for Licence assessment.

* Please note the rider will not be taken out on the road if they fail the off road skills assessment.

Overseas Licence Conversion

If you have a Victorian car licence but are riding a motorcycle using an overseas motorbike licence, you must convert the overseas bike licence immediately. You cannot drive and ride with licences from 2 different countries.

You can drive using your overseas licence when you first arrive in Victoria BUT if you plan on staying for more than 6 months, you will need to convert your overseas licence to a Victorian licence within this time.

If you hold an overseas motorbike license that is full and unrestricted, you may be able to convert this over to a full motorbike licence. To do this, you need to get your licence verified by Vic Roads and then you need to successfully complete the two-day learner permit course and the on-road licence assessment.

If you don't have a Victorian Car Licence you will also need to undertake a Road Knowledge Test and a Hazard Perception Test at Vic Roads.

Please note: If you're currently living in Victoria and driving with an overseas or interstate licence, you'll have six months from 29 October 2019, to convert to a Victorian licence regardless of your Visa or if you have an international driving permit.
