Hi Guys, I passed by P's at the end of April08 so technically i still have approx 11 months before i can upgrade however i turn 30 in 3 months time and have been enquiring whether or not i will be able to upgrade after my birthday as part of the NSW mature age rider scheme. Originally i called the RTA a few times but each person gave me a differnt answer, some yes, some no and unfortunately the website wasnt any help either. So then i emailed the RTA and after 2 automated responces directing me to look on their website i finally recieved the following - Thankyou for your email. Once a customer meets all the requirements of a mature age rider, their licence can be maintained as unrestricted without serving the full provisional period. The requirements being that i am 30years old, have held an unrestricted drivers licence for five years with no cancellations and i have completed both the pre-learner and pre-provisional courses. So at this point its looking good for an early upgrade as i have finally got something in writing from them however i just want to find out whether any one else has done the same thing? I know that if your already 30 at the time you pass your P's you can upgrade no problem but has anyone else been in the same situation and sucessfully upgraded early? Obviously i'll be keeping the email and taking it with me when its time to upgrade but i just dont want to spend the next 3 months planning and looking to buy my next bike only to be shot down in flames when i go there in person.
