Getting Started

Motorcycle sport is a fun, safe and enjoyable activity and getting involved is very easy and takes just five easy steps.

Step 1. Join  A Club

You will need to join an affiliated motorcycle club with Motorcycling Victoria if you are applying for a competition licence (e.g. Junior National/Restricted, Senior National/Restricted).

It is not required to join an affiliated motorcycle club if you wish to apply for a non-competition licence (e.g. Mini, Recreation).

There are over 70 affiliated clubs in Victoria to choose from in our CLUB DIRECTORY.

Step 2. Complete a Licence Application Form

You will need to fill-out: 2017 Licence Application Form

Or you can now apply or renew your licence online here: RIDERNET

Step 3. Training

If you’re aged between 7 – 16-years-old you will need to undergo coaching and training by one of our qualified coaches. If you wish to apply for a Junior National or Junior Restricted licence, you must complete the Kick Start Program, which requires you to undertake a minimum of five hours of coaching. Please contact Motorcycling Victoria if you wish to receive a Kick Start booklet containing further information. The Kick Start Program can be arranged through your motorcycle club.

If you’re 16-years-old or above and wish to apply for a Senior National or Senior Restricted licence, you must complete the 25-question multiple theory test:
