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, 197 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 before you go into the agent. If you book online, you’ll still need to go to the driver licensing agent before your test to make your application.
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.
