    Hi Guys,

    Have been learning to ride for a few months now with a friend. Have not had any instructors lessons yet but thinking about taking the test anyway. If you have your full C class drivers license do you need to need to display L plates or where a learners jacket during the assessment? I can't see it mentioned anywhere on the transport website?

    Getting a licence to ride a LAMS approved motorcycle (R-E class) licence

    • You must be at least 16 years and six months of age to undertake the PDA.
    • The PDA will determine your general riding ability. This may include testing your ability to:
      • Balance the vehicle at low speeds by riding around a figure 'O' without putting a foot on the ground.
      • Correctly park and start on a hill.
      • Perform a quick stop under full control without locking either wheel.

    • You must wear appropriate attire that consists of enclosed footwear, approved helmet, long trousers and long-sleeved shirt or fully-sleeved jacket. Gloves and eye protection are also highly recommended.
    • For the practical riding assessment on a Trike, applicants will be required to demonstrate their ability to control the relevant trike for which the class is sought. The assessment will be in the same format as an unrestricted motorcycle assessment, with specific focus on road position. In lieu of the balance component, applicants will be required to demonstrate a parking or turning-around manoeuvre.




    Regards,

    James

    First test (a year ago) the examiner told me to take off the L jacket, second test (a month ago) the examiner left the jacket on me..

    Both the tests were RE.

    I know this answer doesn't really help you but it almost seems to be down to the examiner.

    the explanation I was given when I was told to take the jacket off is "so that other drivers don't treat you like a learner on the road". I didn't ask why he didn't remove it on the second test, I find examiners don't like to be questioned!

    Bring L's with you...I'm sure you'd rather have them and not need them then not have them and not be allowed to test..

    You need L's the whole time because you don't have a motorcycle license. If you haven't had any lessons from an instructor, it's more than likely you will fail because you wont know where you're likely to be tested, and what you'll be tested on.
    Rest in Peace

    I didn't wear a vest in my R class assessment but I did for my RE. I think you're right in that it's up to the assessor.

    No requirement for the L during a test.
    You are deemed to be a licensed rider for the duration of the assessment, and it is contravention of the road code to display an L when licensed.

    Unless you have good skills and knowledge of how the test is conducted and what the examiners want to see this may not be a successful idea. I have nothing to gain or lose from telling you this...

    Perhaps someone could mention pass rates without lessons to help inform your decision.

    As for wearing L's during the test I believe some examiners like you to wear it as you'll likely be riding annoyingly slow as opposed to the more brisk manner of most licensed riders and this will help avoid frustration/danger with other motorists.
