Licence - SA

  1. Hey,

    Was wondering if any of the SA guys could tell me if there is still the loophole in the SA bike system where people over a certain height or weight weren't restricted as much to the bike they could get on their L's or P's.



  2. I very much doubt there's a way around it now that LAMS bikes are the go. You'd have to be a pretty big fella (and I mean weight) to have absolutely any argument I'd think .. and even then, as I learnt when I tried to pay for my advanced ridersafe before the price hike, it's luck of the draw for whether the customer service person even entertains the idea of letting you try. Good luck if you're gonna give it a go, but I sure wouldn't be holding my breath for you to get around it :)
