Rider training centres
If you live in an area where motorcycle rider training is available, you must complete all the required courses. Find a training provider near you.
What is rider training
If you live in an area where motorcycle rider training courses are available (a declared area), you must complete training with an approved provider to get your rider licence.
There are 2 levels of training you need to complete:
- Pre-learner – this course is designed for people who have no motorcycle riding experience. The course is conducted in a controlled off-road area. It takes 7 hours and is delivered over 2 days.
- Pre-provisional – this course includes on-road activities as well as activities conducted in a controlled off-road area, and a practical test to assess your riding ability. It is a full-day course (7 hours).
Booking a training course
You need to book directly with your chosen training course provider. You’ll need to pay the course fee when you book.
You should also let the training provider know if you want to learn to ride a motor scooter.
Before you book
In order to book training, you'll need one of the following forms of ID:
- a current NSW driver licence
- Transport Customer Number.
Changing or cancelling a booking
If you need to change or cancel a booking, contact the training provider directly. Changes are subject to the terms and conditions of your booking, as are refunds of course fees.
Training and testing on a three-wheeled scooter
Three-wheeled scooters with a narrow front wheel track can be used for rider training.
If you want to use a three-wheeled scooter (eg. Piaggio 3) for your pre-learner rider training course, you will need to bring your own scooter for training. Contact the rider training provider by phone to discuss at the time of booking your pre-learner training.
- Be able to transport the registered motorcycle to your booked training course location. The motorcycle must be transported by a licensed rider or trailered to the rider training location.
- Provide the following to the Rider Training provider:
- motorcycle registration plate number
- a current copy of the Comprehensive Motor Vehicle Insurance Policy for the motorcycle
Rider training and testing booking procedures remain unchanged for declared and undeclared areas.
Waiver of insurance
The Rider Training Provider will require you to complete a waiver of insurance document. This document will be supplied on the day of training and testing.
Approved three-wheeled motorcycles
Some three-wheeled motorcycles are not accepted for rider learner training and testing (pre-learner and pre-provisional). To check your vehicle is eligible, see list of approved learner motorcycles.
