Question regarding full license [NSW]

Discussion in 'Politics, Laws, Government & Insurance' started by Blaise, Sep 5, 2010.

  1. I'm just wondering...

    I come off restrictions and believe I meet the criteria outlined above but I'm wondering about the bit I highlighted in red. I'm assuming that means, not disqualified/suspended etc as it seems to be just a catch-all and I can't find any other reference to "other requirements".

    In addition:
    As I hold a full, unrestricted drivers licence, do I need to do this test to get my unrestricted motorcycle licence? Yes, I know it says "drivers" but I'll make the assumption that this is just the RTA forgetting that people get licenses for motorbikes as well.

  2. Re: Question regarding full licence [NSW]

    Off the top of my head it is referring to the DQT (or whatever stupid name they pick for the riders' equivalent). Most accurate answer - give em a ring.
  3. you walk into the RTA, pay them lots of money (1 yr, 2 yrs, 3 yrs, 5 yrs - or something like that) and then take a photo and get a new licence.

    no other tests are required, provided you've held the p's for the minimum required period and are not suspended or disqualified etc.
  4. Correct, I called them today and the girl said - pay $22 (replacement licence fee), get the photo licence and walk out unrestricted.
  5. What the hell is the point of keeping everyone off litre monsters for 2 years then if theres no further testing after the MOST? I could just sit on my p's for 2 years and not ride

    oh man this is stupid
  6. Agreed and that happens, there's no enforcement stating you must ride X hours/kms etc.

    In addition, what's the point of enforcing a minimum of 3 months on L's? I know I had at least 2 people at my MOST who rode a bike for their pre-learners and the next time they rode a bike was their MOST day. Pre-June 2009 (assuming you could line up the test days), you could sit the pre-learner, wait a couple of days, pass the MOST and jump to a full licence if you satisfied the points I quoted in my first post (although the age restriction was 30, not 25).

    In my defence, I've ridden nearly 17,000 km since my MOST.
