  • 6 Months RE’s

    Hey guys,

    First time poster, just curious I’ve had my car driving license for 6 years, full license, my brother is saying I don’t need to do the six months and HPT, so I went and did the theory, got my learners permit for RE’s, the people at the DVR said I have to wait six months before going for the HPT, but according to some whenever i feel I am ready I can just go for the practical, is that correct?

    or do I have to do the six months on learners permit and do the HPT...

    I thought you only had to do it once. IE you had done it with a car license so that was it. Looks like it has changed.

      Yeah that’s my confusion, I was just interested in if anyone knew for definite that is the case, might be worth while just going in and asking, I am unable to find anything to tell me that I don’t have to resist a HPT and do the six months

        From DOT:

        "To start learning to ride a LAMS approved motorcycle, you must apply for a learner's permit and pass the motorcycle theory test.
        • You can apply for an R-E class learner's permit at 16 years of age.
        • You will need to pay for the theory test, the application fee and the Learner Log Book (if you choose to log hours in the printed log book)*.
        • You will need to sit a motorcycle theory test consisting of 35 multiple-choice questions that relate to general road rules and specific motorcycle relevant questions.
        • You will need to get 28 or more answers correct to pass.

        * A log book is not applicable if you already hold a licence to drive a car."
        and

        "Once a minimum of six calendar months has lapsed since you were issued with your Learner's permit for the R-E class and you have reached the minimum age of 16 years and six months, you can sit your motorcycle Hazard Perception Test (HPT).

        If you already hold a licence to drive a moped (R-N Class), and you were required to complete the motorcycle HPT to obtain it, you need to hold your R-E class learner’s permit for six months, but you will not be required to complete the motorcycle HPT again.

        You must have passed the motorcycle HPT before you can attempt a Practical Driving Assessment (PDA) on a motorcycle.

        Visit the Hazard Perception Test page for information on completing step five of getting your licence."
        Looks like yes you need to wait 6 months and do the HPT if you didn't do it for a moped or MC as it's a MC specific HPT
        No need for log book or P plates but will need to do a MC specific theory test

          I did not have to do HPT at all, but I must say I have had divers license longer than 6 years. Have the law change where you must do HPT regardless of age?

            wife just did her R class, and had to do the HPT and 6 months on L before she can do the test. (Passed)
