  • Motorbike / Cal License

    i was wondering... is it possible to ride a motorbike using a learners bike license if your car license is suspended or becomes suspended?

    in nsw?

    Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm..

    I doubt there'd be many people able to answer that question first-hand, but either:

    - They'd give you the licence, and the 4pt hit would suspend both licence classes,
    - They'd refuse to grant you the licence when you apply due to driving record (notice of refusal until xx/yy/zz),
    - Be lucky Suspend only your C class licence (car) and not your R class licence (Rider).

    I tried something similar recently, got refused a licence and issued a notice of refusal due to an outstanding, unapplied suspension. In trying to ask the RTA what to do though I got different responses from everyone I spoke to (which delayed my refusal period and thus I now have to wait even longer before I can get my licence back, useless tarts ). You could try contacting them and seeing what they say, or even just doing the course + test and seeing how you go. I honestly would not be surprised if you would get different outcomes out of different RTA representatives.

    Do you actually want to ride or are you just looking into it as a sheer last resort?

        If you license becomes suspended or if its suspending you are unable to ride a bike on NSW roads as far as i know you cant because my mate lost his car license and the RTA said nope your are not allowed.
        Previous cars: N14 SSS, N15 SSS, Subaru Liberty RX

          Appremtly all licence class get suspended. I had a mate who held a boat licence and hooned like crazy on the water as he was'nt aware of this condition. He not only got his boat licence suspended but also his car. I assume it's the same with bikes. It cant hurt to send the RTA a question through their "contact us" section on their website or at least ring them up. Im sure if there is a good reason behind it eg: work purposes, an exemption may be granted (no doubt if thats the case that there will be a fee involved). i saw your post on the busted thread. Did you end up loosing your provisional 1 licence yet?

            it use to be your bike licence and your car licence were on different licences so if you lost one you got the other still, then the rta worked out what people were doing so they linked them on one. so if you lose one you lose all your licences in one hit now.
            IT'S NOT THE SPEED THAT KILLS, IT'S THE SUDDEN STOP.

              It's all the same. This includes car, heavy, bike & boat licence.

              Get one suspended, get them all suspended.
              If at first you don't succeed, add duct take.
