Learner approved motorcycle scheme (LAMS) for learner and restricted motorcycle licence holders.
Motorcycle learner permit and licence holders who have a restricted licence can only ride motorcycles and scooters under the Learner Approved Motorcycle Scheme (LAMS)
The list of approved motorcycle and scooter models that can be ridden by learner and novice riders is updated as suitable new models are approved for inclusion.
The list is primarily determined by assessing the power-to-weight ratio and engine capacity of motorcycles. If the power-to-weight ratio of a motorcycle exceeds 150 kilowatts per tonne or the engine capacity exceeds 660cc, the motorcycle will not be included on the list. Motorcycles may also be excluded from the LAMS list if they have other characteristics that make them unsuitable for learners, for example, being found to be overrepresented in crashes.
