I want to know if you can legally take a Pillion Passenger on a 50cc Moped/Scooter in QLD on a Open Car Licence (Class C). This is bugging me because I can't find an "official" answer. In QLD you can ride a 50cc moped, on a Class C drivers licence. I have an Open C, and have just finished my motorcycle learners and done the Q ride course, so now I believe I am on my Open RE licence too (don't know how the provisional RE thing works, but I think they put me straight to open RE, 'cos I was on Open cars and I think u go on the same as ur car). Now I know I can't have a pillion if riding a motorcycle. Not until I have held the RE for 12 months. But if I am riding a 50cc moped, 2 seat rego/ctp on a Class C Open car licence, can I legally have a pillion?? I asked QLD Transport, their response "A person riding a moped under their Class C Provisional, P1, P2 or Open licence must not carry a passenger while riding on the road." I have looked through the Transport Operations (Road Use Management—Road Rules) Regulation 2009 act (QLD Road Rules) - can't find any mention of it. 12:2 / Page 84 of the QLD Motorcycle Riders' Guide states "In addition to these road rules, moped riders who do not hold either a class RE or R licence are not permitted to carry a pillion passenger. Moped riders who hold a class RE or R licence, and have held it for 12 months, can carry a pillion passenger." So far, it's not looking good. But I'm hoping, there may be a chance..it's all well and good these guides/information state that you can't do it on a Class C drivers licence, but I can't see it in the QLD road rules, or any reference to the specific legislation about it. Is it enough for QLD Transport Dept to say no you can't do it on their website, and we all have to follow that, or does that mean nothing except what are actually the official legislation / rules? Especially when I read this a lot in the things I'm reading- makes me wonder: While every effort is made to ensure that the information is accurate and conforms to Queensland legislation, this publication must not be taken as a legal interpretation of the legislation. Maybe someone can point me in the right direction??
