I did some looking and it seems you were closer than I was with the 250cc restriction. I was remembering back to my high school days. They changed it slightly to the last point below. The following restrictions apply if you have your learners permit or you are under 30. The restrictions stay for 12 months when you do have your license. Unless you are 30+ with a 5 year clean record.
While on your learner rider licence you must observe all the normal learner rider restrictions:
* Maximum speed of 80km/h.
* Display an L plate on the rear of your motorcycle.
* Not exceed zero blood alcohol concentration (in effect, this means you cannot drink before riding).
* Wear an approved Australian Standards AS1698 motorcycle helmet
* No pillion passenger.
* Motorcycle engine capacity and power to weight restriction. 660ml engine capacity and power to weight ratio not greater than and 150kw / tonne and is a bike approved by the RTA and displayed on the List of Approved Motorcycles for Novice Riders.
The list has bikes up to 650cc and one of the few I recognized was the EX500.
I’m an ex-pat Aussie and you are limited to a 125cc bike when you first get your license. Helmets are mandatory also. Both of those wouldn’t work here because people don’t like being told what to do. I still work with people who bitch about the mandatory seat belt laws as a comparison.
I’ll try again tonight with the walk in thing. I could give up my spot in late August to get on a wait list but I’m hesitant to do that in case I am unable to get into a class before then. I don’t know if 3 wait list people getting in is normal or just because of the up coming holiday.
Nice video. Explains it very well visually.
