(I've e-mailed this to Queensland Transport, but I have a hunch I'll get a quicker answer from Netriders... ) I think I have pretty decent reading comprehension (I have a PhD!), but I chased the links around the Queensland Transport site for several pages and couldn't quite get this one straight in my head. I have an open car license and an open Class R motorcycle license. My wife has an open car license, and wants to learn to ride on my 250 cc bike. Does she need to specially apply for a learner's license, or does learning to ride a bike fall under the same category as 'next higher class of license'? As I understand it, she can start learning straight away if she displays an L plate on the bike. Is that correct?
