So – you have your learners and your about to do Q-Ride. What type of licence do you get and what are the rules?

This will depend on what car licence you currently have. If you have a P1 licence then you will have a P1 RE bike Licence, if you have P2 car then you will have P2 RE bike licence or you will have an open car licence meaning you will then have an RE open bike licence.

P plates

If you have an RE P1 provisional licence, you must display a red P plate on the rear of the motorcycle you are riding.

If you have an RE P2 provisional licence, you must display a green P plate on the rear of the motorcycle you are riding.

Or you can wear a vest that clearly displays a capital ‘P’ of the relevant colour on the back.

Drugs and alcohol

You must comply with the no alcohol limit (0.00 BAC) for the first 12 months of holding a RE provisional or open licence.

The no alcohol limit also applies if you are learning to ride an R motorcycle on your class RE licence.

If you are found drink or drug driving, you will be fined and/or may have your licence cancelled.
