According to VicRoads, you don't have to hold your L's for 3 months before you sit for your P's/full license. " You must hold a learner permit continuously for at least three months in the period immediately prior to applying for a motorcycle licence, or undertake a motorcycle training course". Does anybody know what training course they are talking about? I bought a motorcycle and have had it (and my learners permit) for 1 month and would like to get my full license asap and sell the motorcycle quickly for warranty/resale value/low kms/rego purposes. Obviously I would have to weigh up the costs (and benefits) of the training course vs. the above items. Obviously I don't pretend to be a pro rider but I am confident of passing the exam. I have done about 500 km's currently. And no, I won't be buying a S1000RR tomorrow, but do intend to buy a sports bike during the next few years or so once I can (hopefully) spend ~$25-30K on a bike (would love a 1198s or S1000RR). Even if I had my LAMS bicycle for the minimum 12 months, I don't see myself riding much as it would be sitting out in the garage. I intend to get my full license, sell my existing LAMS bike and get a sports bike in 2-3 years time to mainly ride on the track.
