To get your full licence you need to pass the full licence practical test or successfully complete a CBTA full licence course.

  • successfully complete a CBTA full licence course with an approved CBTA assessor
  • visit a driver licensing agent and:
    • present evidence of your identity
    • present your motorcycle competency certificate (the CBTA assessor will give you this certificate) pay the full licence application fee
    • meet the eyesight requirements
    • present a medical certificate if required
    • provide a signature have your photograph taken.

To obtain your full licence via the practical test option you must either:

or

  • book your full licence practical test over the phone or internet.

    If you choose this option you must complete the application process at a driver licensing agent before your new licence can be issued. You should allow approximately 30 minutes to do this. Check the agent opening hours, as they may not be open 30 minutes before your test appointment. In that case you can complete the application process before the day of the test or after the test.
