Pre-learner and pre-provisional rider training is available at approved rider training centres for applicants living in a declared area.

Note: Visit a service centre if a rider training centre is unavailable in your local area.

More information

  • If you don't pass the provisional training before your licence expires, you'll have to start the entire program again – this includes paying the fees again.
  • You can't get an extension or renewal of a learner rider licence.
