I don't get this rider training and licencing system here in Victoria. It just doesn't make any sense. After you have completed a pretty basic course and test, you get your learners. This allows you to ride out in traffic for 15 months! After 3 months, you can go for another pretty basic test and get a 'p' or restricted licence. This new licence allows you to do exactly the same things as an L licence holder except in 12 months you can get a bigger bike, drink alcohol and carry a pillon. Question is: Why? What has a restricted license holder learnt that a learner licence holder hasn't in 12 months? What difference does another easier test make?? Then, after 12 months a restricted licence holder can go out and buy a bike that has 4 times the power (or more) then the 250 that he had to ride. This system is stupid. I don't think it makes for better riders at all.
