OK, So being self employed in the film industry for the last six years, and the last 12 of those being the hardest circumstances to hit our industry in more than 20 years, I had more things to consider spending my money on than going for my opens. ( like paying rent, food etc borring staying alive type stuff) So now im back in the work saddle and with a bright future ahead, i am ready to go for my Opens. however, I have just discovered that My license has expired. And apparantly I cant renew it, I HAVE TO DO THE ENTIRE TEST AGAIN AND PAY THE FULL FEE!!! SERIOUSLY WHAT THE ABSOLUTE F*CK! http://www.vicroads.vic.gov.au/Home/Licences/RenewReplaceOrUpdate/RenewingALearnerPermit.htm And i Quote from Vic Roads. Motorcycle learner permits A motorcycle learner permit is issued for fifteen months and cannot be renewed. If you wish to have a new motorcycle learner permit issued you must complete a motorcycle learner permit test and pay all relevant fees. This Has to be one of the most retarded things i have ever come across. I am a highly competent rider, have been riding dirt bikes since i was 12 and can keep up with much larger bikes thru the twistys on my LAMS BIKE! Is there any way to get around this? Sincerely annoyed, Expired Learner.
