Motorcycle license query

Recommended Posts

Heres one im stuck on. Im an Aussie living in Uk with both full Uk and Australian car driving license. I will be returning to Melbourne in October 2015.

Im in the process of taking a direct access course for a full bike license and hopefully will pass by end of August 2014.

So heres my question. When i arrive back in Melbourne will i be able to add the full bike license to my Aussie one as i will with the Uk one?

in other words will they recognize the bike test as a valid license, i will have held it for around 14 months by then.

hopefully someone on here knows.?

I don't see why not, hubby had held his UK motorbike licence for a few years and it was a just a simple swap for an Aussie one.

If you don't go after what you want, you'll never have it. If you don't ask, the answer is always no. If you don't step forward, you're always in the same place...

If you get a chance,take it, If it changes your life,let it. Nobody said it would be easy they just said it would be worth it...

I only held my full license for a couple of years and it was valid when I moved here. It was categorised on my UK driving license and automatically was added to my Aus license when I applied.


I didn't have to ride on P's or have any restrictions at all.


Hope that helps.
