The Learner Permit course has been developed to provide critical riding skills for all experience levels. Importantly, this 2-day course teaches you the fundamentals of motorcycle control, and introduces riders to safe on-road riding behaviour and promotes a positive rider safety attitude. HART provides all motorcycles, helmets, gloves and jackets for the duration of the course.
The Learner Permit course has strict pass/fail criteria set by Vicroads. You will complete a multiple choice theory assessment, and two practical riding assessments.
Once you have passed all assessments and met all eligibility criteria, HART, on behalf of Vicroads, will issue you a learner permit.
