1. Have the correct licence;
To participate in Q-Ride training and assessment, as a minimum you must hold a current class RE motorbike learner licence.
If you wish to obtain a class R motorbike (unrestricted) licence, you must have held a class RE provisional or open licence for at least one year.
Getting Your Learner’s Licence
It’s easy to get your motorcycle learner licence:
Choose a Q-Ride registered service provider to provide your Q-Ride training and assessment. AMA-Q-Ride is a registered service provider and can assist with all your needs.
Contact AMA-Q-Ride to enrol. We will ask you to provide some information about your licence history to determine which class of motorbike you are eligible to learn to ride. For example, if you want to learn to ride a class R motorbike, you may need to know the date on which your class RE provisional or open licence was first issued.
You can obtain this information by completing a Driver’s Record Information Request form (F2121) and presenting it at any Queensland Transport customer service centre. You must pay a fee when you lodge the request.
4. Learn to ride
Q-Ride training and assessment consists of a number of competency standards that your trainer will take you through.
When learning to ride a motorbike you must display an L-plate and carry your class RE learner, provisional or open licence. Your licence must be shown to a police officer or any other authorised person if you are asked to do so.
When you have demonstrated you are competent in all of the Q-Ride competencies, the Q-Ride registered service provider will issue you with a competency declaration (Q-Ride Certificate).
6. Getting your licence
Before you can ride unaccompanied on your motorbike, you must take your current licence and Q-Ride Certificate to a Queensland Transport customer service centre to apply for your motorbike licence. Although you will not be required to do a practical driving test, you must be eligible for the licence you are applying for.
