The Queensland pre-learner motorcycle course is a training and assessment program designed to help learner licence applicants gain basic riding knowledge and motorcycle handling skills in a safe environment before riding on the road.

The objectives of the course are to ensure learner riders have the knowledge and skills to manage, under supervision, the routine riding situations they will encounter while learning to ride, to instill appropriate riding attitudes and a safety mindset, and to minimise the likelihood of harm due to inadequate riding knowledge or skills.

The course forms part of an integrated training and assessment program, encompassing a theory assessment and further training at the restricted (RE) and unrestricted (R) licence stages. The course is designed for people who have no on-road riding experience. Having said that , riders who have previous riding experience will learn much from the course and the sequential /layered method of delivery of the modules growing and reinforcing existing skills.

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 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.
