  • legalities of owning a bike

    Hey guys I have a drivers license and Lerners Permit for RE. I know it's illegal to ride a motorcycle NOW, but if I wanted to purchase a bike - is it legal to own one without the RE license? i.e wil I have trouble licensing the bike and insurance.

    You can own the bike, no problems.
    May have a bit of difficulty insuring it, but certainly possible.
    It should even be covered whilst your riding it, as long as you're within the conditions of your learners. Probably be a fairly hefty excess.
    The temptation to ride the bike will probably be the biggest issue.
    Cheers

        You can ride now with an instructor or a shadow

        I bought both my bikes with only learners permits.. Got them insured with only permits for both.. No problems.

          You will have no problems owning, licensing or insuring a bike while on your R-E learners, (Iam a R-E learner with a bike - GPX250)
          Try Western QBE for insurance, I got a great deal from them for my bike insurance.
