Pay a fee for your next stage rider licence

After you pass the rider training course or riding test you will be eligible for either a:

  • restricted rider licence
  • or provisional rider licence.

Restricted rider

If you already hold a full licence of another class, your next rider licence stage will be the restricted rider licence for 12 months.

Your restricted rider licence has riding conditions which include not carrying a pillion passenger and only riding a learner approved motorcycle.

You will have to pay the restricted rider licence fee before you will be issued with your licence.

Provisional rider

If you do not hold a licence of another class, your next rider licence stage will be a provisional licence.

Under 25 - you will receive a two year provisional rider licence.

25 and over - you will receive a one year provisional rider licence.

You will have to pay the provisional rider licence fee before you will be issued with your licence.

Your provisional rider licence has riding conditions which include all of the following:

  • zero blood alcohol concentration
  • you must not exceed 100km/h
  • you must display your P plate at the rear of the motorcycle you are riding
  • you must not carry pillion passengers
  • you can only rider a learner approved motorcycle.

Once you have completed the required time on your provisional licence, you can then receive a full Northern Territory rider licence.
