The Licence assessment is the last step in getting a motorcycle licence. You may be eligible to attempt the Licence assessment after:
Holding a valid motorcycle Learner Permit for 3 consecutive months,
Successfully completing a Check Ride (must be completed at least 1 month before attempting the Licence assessment)
The Licence assessment has strict pass/fail criteria set by VicRoads. You will complete two practical riding assessments, on the training range and the road.
Once you have passed all assessments and met all eligibility criteria, HART, on behalf of VicRoads, will issue you a restricted motorcycle licence.
HART provides all motorcycles, helmets, gloves and jackets for the duration of the course if required.

On the day
