Looks like the recon work the NZ motorcycling crowd did recently has been converted into a new Motorcycle GLS, and lo and behold if it doesn't look a lot like the one Vicroads is proposing for Victoria, with a shandi of NSW's motorcycle GLS thrown in. There's an article about it here: http://tvnz.co.nz/national-news/changes-ahead-motorbike-licences-4379168 which links to the official government page at the bottom. FYI: There's no supervised riding or hi viz - so they've left that brain dead stuff for us Victorians. NZ are moving to the Vicroads model that all novice riders are mandatorily LAMS restricted for a longer period of time despite previous driving experience or age. In the Vicroads model that period is potentially 3 years on Provisional plates. In NZ the period will be 18 months. I don't agree with the extended mandatory LAMS restriction. I can maybe see the purpose of the restriction for a hormone flooded young buck or buckette, but learners now are typically older and wiser heads (the average learner age is 30 something). One really good feature of the NZ version though is that you can shorten the restriction period if you do finish the compulsory competency based training sooner... you could be off the LAMS bike in 12months. I like the shortening idea and hope it gets implemented here. If the revised GLS is based on building better riders out of the box through better training, then why should they be arbitrarily restricted to a LAMS bike if they complete the training. The proposed NZ GLS has a strong focus on COMPETENCY training rather than just skills training - I'll be interested to see how they manage that. Oh and get this... currently L platers are restricted to 70 km/h. Once the GLS changes come through, they will be allowed to ride at the speed limit. Seems like they've cottoned on that speed differential is a killer... hello?! NSW?! Are you listening??
