Code of Practice-Student information




If you are starting from scratch, it will take you a minimum of 3 months from the time you complete and obtain your learner permit to the time you can complete the Re licence assessment day. You will then need to hold your RE licence for 2 years before being able to upgrade to a R unrestricted licence.


The course curriculum provides a balanced program, presented in a logical and progressive manner, with the sequence, structure and timing of modules designed to support knowledge and skill acquisition. The curriculum relies on the system of specifying the value, purpose and direction of training, emphasizing and repeating critical elements, the use of key learning phrases, and ‘over learning’ to enhance knowledge retention and reinforce skills. The course is competency based, with each competency element assessed as competent or not yet competent; participants will only successfully complete the course if they demonstrate all competencies.
The course adopts a blended approach to learning including theory based teaching, demonstrations, coaching and practice through doing. Individualized feedback is provided throughout the course allowing participants to learn through experience. This interaction also facilitates self-reflection and the use of higher order thinking, which has been shown to positively influence on-road behaviour and attitudes to road safety.
Topics included are:

   Pre start checks                        Slow Manoeuvring             Road craft

   Attitude effects                       Braking                              Hill starts

   Motorcycle controls               Cornering                           Overtaking

   Safety and Hazards                Steering                              System of vehicle control

   Defensive riding                     Vision techniques              Hazard observation






We all learn at different rates and the nature of competency based training and assessment accommodates this well. The time it takes a student to complete the various tasks competently will vary based on the learner rider’s knowledge, skill and experience. If a student does not achieve ALL of the required competency standards in a reasonable time it doesn’t mean they have failed. All it means is that further training will be required to get the student to the appropriate level of competency for the elements that they are struggling with. he student will need to re-visit and attend the course again in order to complete the required modules

You could be assessed in many different ways.  


If you are not successful the first time you are assessed, you can:

Once you reach a prescribed level of competency for the above criteria you are issued with a competency declaration certificate (valid for 12 months) which can be presented to any QLD Transport Customer service centre where you will be issued with either a Pre Learner certificate of competency a  R or RE licence.competency

Remember: Your competency certificate is not a licence. Licences are only issued by Queensland Transport.



Achieving competency is not only the decision by the trainer assessor. It is your decision too. If you are deemed by your assessor to be competent but you feel as if you haven’t mastered a skill it, or feel uncomfortable performing a task or don’t quite understand the technique, it is up to you to talk to your trainer assessor about this at the time of assessment. Your trainer assessor WILL address your concern and give you further instruction and more time to reinforce the skill .The entire purpose of the training and assessment program is for you to be able to ride a motorcycle on the road with other road users in a safe and appropriate manner and have a clear understanding of the specific skills required to ride a motorcycle and how to execute them.



Whilst you are riding the motorcycle you are required to wear an Australian Standards AS 1698-1988 ECE 2205 approved motorcycle helmet and protective clothing including long pants, enclosed shoes, jacket, gloves and eye protection. A compliant L Plate must be fitted to the rear of the motorcycle or an L Plate vest is to be worn (supplied).


It is an offense to ride on the road as a learner without being in the company of an instructor or other rider who has held an open motorcycle licence for the class of motorcycle you are riding, for at least 1 year. If for any reason you become separated (out of sight) from the trainer you must pull over to the kerb, dismount and wait for the trainer to come back for you. If the lead rider takes a wrong turn or deviates from the designated route all students are to follow that rider providing it is safe and lawful to do so. Your trainer will discuss and confirm  the separation policy with you before you head out onto the road.



Students are required to act responsibly and safely and to obey the basic rules of courtesy and fairness to trainers, other students and all road users. You are reminded that you are in a potentially dangerous environment and you must obey all traffic rules and not intentionally put yourself or others in danger. Your rider trainer will never ask you or expect you to do anything illegal. You will be held responsible for your own actions.


Students are asked to approach the trainer before the course commences to discuss any Language, Literacy or Numeracy issues you may have. If any special needs cannot be accommodated on the day the learner will be encouraged to postpone the course to allow the trainer to obtain further assistance or training aids. Students suffering from any illness, injury, medication or ailment that may inhibit their ability to control a motorcycle safely on the road should discuss this with their trainer assessor so that a control measure can be put in place. 

Some conditions or health issues may require you to provide a medical certificate, in this instance a Queensland Transport Medical Certificate for Motor Vehicle Driver form (F3712) must be completed by your doctor or specialist


The student should forward any complaints in writing to the service provider. The service provider will, where necessary, discuss the details with the trainer involved and if necessary arrange a meeting with all parties to resolve the issue. Every effort will be made to resolve any grievances without the need for a formal appeal.
