This page tells you the process to get your motorcycle full licence, and what you need to know about holding a full licence.
If you have completed an competency-based training and assessment (CBTA) 6F course , you can get your full licence once you turn 17½.
If you haven't completed a CBTA course, then you must be 18 before you can get your full licence.
If you have completed a CBTA 6F course, then you must have held your restricted licence for at least 12 months before you can get your full licence.
If you have not completed a course, then you must have held your restricted licence for at least 18 months.
To get your full licence, you must apply at a driver licensing agent.
You will need to:
fill out an application form (DL1) [PDF, 228 KB]
present evidence of your identity
prove your eyesight meets the required standard
let the agent take your photo and a signature
pay the full licence application fee.
You can then either:
present your competency-based training and assessment (CBTA) 6F certificate, or
book and pass the full practical driving test and pay the test fee.
You can book the test online or over the phone before you go into the agent. If you do it this way, you will need to go to a driver licensing agent before your test to lodge your application.
If you have completed a CBTA 6F course instead, you don't have to sit a test or pay a test fee.
The full licence practical test is a 30-minute test with a testing officer, who will assess whether your riding is good enough to progress to the next level of driver licence.
Once you have passed the full licence practical test, you can ride any time you like, ride any motorcycle you like and you can carry passengers.
