  • Learner rider training:
    • you can attend a pre-learner course when you're 16 years and 6 months old. However, you need to be at least 16 years and 9 months old to get your learner rider licence.
  • Pre-provisional rider training:
    • you need to have had a learner rider licence for a qualifying period of at least 3 months. You can book your course 6 weeks before the end of the qualifying period, and you must complete the course before the expiry of your learner rider licence.

  • Make sure you've booked your pre-provisional training at least 4 to 6 weeks before your learner licence expires. This will give you enough time to reschedule another test if you fail, or have to delay, the first one.
  • 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.
