What to bring

You may use your own motorbike in the advanced course only, as long as it is registered, roadworthy, not modified and on the list of learner-approved motorcycles.

If you do not wish to use your own, a motorcycle or scooter will be provided. However, particular types and models cannot be guaranteed.

You must bring the following items with you otherwise you cannot participate and will need to make another booking:

  • a fit for purpose, compliant helmet
  • current photo identification
  • a current learner's permit
  • course payment receipt.

What the course involves

A motorcycle learner's permit must be held for a minimum period of 12 months, regardless of age or if a full licence is held.

The Advanced Rider Safe course is a half-day training session that includes a practical assessment.

During the session, you will learn advanced bike control skills with emphasis placed on road riding skills and traction theory.

If you fail the course, you are allowed two additional attempts at no extra charge.

After successfully completing the advanced course, you can apply for an R-date motorbike licence.  Present your certificate of competency at a Service SA customer service centre.
