I did do the obligatory search first, I promise. It's just that it's very ambiguous. Mrs Bravus has had her Ls in QLD for a couple of years but never gotten around to doing Q-Ride and getting her license. That is about to change in the next couple of weeks. She has had her full car license for 35 years or so. Will she be eligible to ride a non-LAMS bike once she completes Q-Ride? It's confusing because everything you read says 'must have held an RE license for a year'. But the Ls license says 'RE' on it. She's had her Ls for more than a year, but does she need to get her license and ride a LAMS bike for another year, then do another Q-Ride to upgrade to an R (unrestricted) license? Or can she go straight to R from where she is now? It's relevant because she currently rides a CB125E. I'd like to upgrade her to a real bike, but non-LAMS midsize bikes are a hell of a lot cheaper than LAMS ones.
