Where to start?

First of all, you are required to get a learners permit from the Western Australian Department of Transport (previously Department of Planning and Infrastructure) before you are able to receive motorcycle training and instruction in Perth including Joondalup and surrounds. This requires attending one of the licensing centres in your location and completing a theory test. This test is made up of two parts, Part 1 is the generic theory test and Part 2 deals specifically with motorcycle theory. For more information follow this link to the Department of Transport Website.

You may wish to try out the following sample quizzes: Quiz A, Quiz B and Quiz C.

If you currently hold an R-E class license, you are permitted to receive motorcycle training and instruction on a motorcycle larger than 250, but will be unable to do the assessment until you have held the R-E class license for a minimum of 12 months.

If you have already concluded your training or are ready to book your assessment, you may now book online at the Department of Training Online Booking System. Check the links page for phone numbers.

Learning to ride

Once you have successfully completed your learners test and hold a learners permit, you may commence our Perth motorbike training . Instruction and motorcycle training can be provided by either a professional riding instructor, or by somebody who has held the same class license or higher for which you are training, for a minimum period of 4 years (2 years if the license is R-N).

We are able to provide individual motorbike training and instruction on all classes of motorcycles with a focus on SAFETY and COMPLIANCE, ensuring that you are instructed the correct way to ride your motorcycle and use the roads, while being aware of the risks and hazards around you. We use intercoms attached to your crash helmet to communicate with you while you are riding, allowing your instructor to immediately communicate advice, instructions and corrections to you and allowing you to ask questions as you go along.

What is provided to you?
Motorcycle Training Perth

If you do not have a motorcycle, we will supply you with a motorcycle of the class in which you will be licensed.

For convenience, we will supply a crash helmet with an attached communication system.

Since you are embarking on this journey, it seems obvious that you are serious about achieving your licence for the motorcycle you intend riding. It would therefore make sense that you would be purchasing the necessary accessories to achieve this. We cannot supply every size and fit, from 5XL to XS. Gloves, jackets and shoes should be provided by you.

If you are interested in purchasing items, please visit our Marketplace page with links to some suppliers of motorcycles and motorcycle accessories.

Please note that we receive NO financial benefit from your purchases – but would like you to mention the referral when you do.
