  8. No, the laws here have no direct relationship to those in the UK. At present, learner are probably a little less restrictive than UK, and any reforms in the pipeline won't be following those particular proposals.
    Doesn't mean they won't look at them in the future, though.

    (For others information, the UK test is going to become a lot harder, with longer, graded periods before a riders can get a a full license. This is apparently an EU-based initiative).

  15. In Queensland, Winners of the State of Origin for three years in a row, the bike licensing laws have changed back to what they used to be - you have to have an RE license for 12 months (restricted to 250 or under) before you can get a R (unrestricted) bike license.

    Young drivers must have a car license for 12 months before they can get a bike learners - once you're over 24 years of age there are different conditions.
