With the population in major cities in Australia continuing to rise, commuters are turning to ways to travel without dealing with the headache of peak hour traffic.
From public transport to motorized scooters, more commuters are taking measures to bypassing the bumper-to-bumper 5pm gridlock. This trend has seen a rise in motorcycles zipping through traffic, leaving their four-wheeled counterparts in their wake. But this also means there are more learner riders out on the roads.
In the old days, road users could just take the written test, take the practical on the same day and they were on their way. But due to necessary reforms, it is now mandatory to not only take the written, but it is also a requirement to take a two day course, as well as be on your learners licence for a minimum of three months. For some states, such as QLD and WA, you are also required to have a fully licenced motorcyclist with you when you are out on the road.
Thinking of getting a hog? Happy to go back on the yellow-coloured square plate? Well, see how you go on the practice test below.
