Hello, I suppose this is the right place to write this. Lots of good people with good advice. So my problem is a bit unsual, I have been riding a scooter, illegally in Europe for maybe 8 or 9 years while living there. (little village). Anyway now back in Sydney I had to get my permit to ride a scooter which I did. Now I am on my P plates on the scooter, but its not the same as when overseas. I decided I want to get a motorbike license but seems I cant. The RTA tell me I got to finish my P plate and then get an unrestricted license. They tell me I cant even go back to get my L's on a motorbike with gears. So If I want to learn riding a motorbike I am not allowed, until in 6 months I finish my P plates, then I can ride automatic or with gears. But I want to learn the gears. So I called some places but they want $200 per hour to teach me the gears. Does this sound right that I cannot learn to ride a motorbike with gears until I finish the P plates ?
