Pay a fee and get your learner rider licence

When you have passed both the riders knowledge test and pre-learner practical test, you must pay the learner licence fee at a MVR office or police station in a remote area.

You can pay by any of the following:

  • Visa card or MasterCard
  • EFTPOS
  • cash
  • cheque.

You will have your photo taken at the MVR office or police station, unless you already hold a licence for another class such as a car licence.

Your learner rider licence will be processed at the MVR. 

You can start riding once you have received your learner rider licence.

Your R class learner rider licence has conditions which include all of the following:

  • zero blood alcohol concentration
  • must not exceed 80km/h
  • display an L plate at the rear of the motorcycle you're riding
  • do not carry pillion passengers
  • only ride motorcycles approved for novice riders.

For more information about and to get the list of approved motorcycles for novice riders go to the New South Wales Government's roads and maritime website.

Read more about R class and other licence classes and conditions.

Once you have your learner licence, you will need to hold it for a minimum of six consecutive months before you can sit your riding test to get your next stage of licence.
