This page tells you the process to get your motorcycle restricted licence, and what you need to know about holding a restricted licence.
You must be at least 16½ years old to get your restricted licence.
You must also have held your learner licence for at least 6 months.
To get your restricted licence, you must apply at a driver licensing agent.
You will need to:
fill out an application form (DL1) [PDF, 229 KB]
present evidence of your identity
prove your eyesight meets the required standard
let the agent take your photo and a signature
pay the restricted licence application fee.
You can then either:
You can book the test online before you go into the agent. If you book online, you'll still need to go to a driver licensing agent before your test to make your application.
If you have completed a CBTA 6R course instead, you don't have to sit a test or pay a test fee.
The restricted licence practical test is a 60 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 held your restricted licence for long enough, you can apply for your full licence.
