      Hey mate,

      just a quick question;

      Do you mean that you are under 17 and you got an R-N license that allows you to ride a 50cc scoot? Or do you mean you did the R-E license on a scooter and hence are restricted to an auto bike up to 250cc?

      either way, congrats.

            You should be able to ride your CBR125 now on ur scooter license. You are the madman who bought the CBR125 right?

              ah I see.

              But that doesnt explain the CBR125 - I was of the impression that those bikes were manual, which wouldnt qualify for the R-N license.

                The description for R-N says "A motorcycle that has a propelling engine having a piston displacement not exceeding 50 cc and which is designed so as to be capable of a speed not exceeding 60 kilometres per hour."

                Doesn't mention auto gearbox - only capacity/speed.

                  I dont believe thats the case.

                  Granted, the section you are looking at may well not have a clause stating the scoot needs to be auto, but the legislation 'schedule' it describes an R-N license as being for a "moped" which has always been an automatic bike with a capacity of less than 50cc, with or without pedals.

                      My above quote from: What vehicles are you licensed to drive?

                      The schedule of the Road Traffic (Drivers Licences) Regulations 1975 does state 'moped', with the Interpretation of that Regulation stating:
                      WA Legislation:- A to Z Browse
                      moped~ means a motor cycle that

                      (a) has a propelling engine with an engine capacity not exceeding 50 ml; and

                      (b) is designed so as not to be capable of a speed exceeding 60 km/h,

                      whether or not it is also capable of being propelled by pedalling, except that it does not include a power assisted pedal cycle; "
                      Still no mention of automatic transmission.

                          Scooter licence? Im not sure whether to congratulate you or offer my condolences.
                          In complete darkness we are all the same. It is only our knowledge and wisdom that seperate us. Dont let your eyes deceive you.

                            Mark - the R-N license only applies to 50cc or less, so in any event the CBR125 couldnt be ridden.

                            But you are right, the Road Traffic (Drivers Licences) Regulations 1975 defines "moped" differently to the Australian Design Rules. The Act is worded as you said, no mention of auto gearbox. The ADR's, I believe do specify auto gearbox on mopeds.

                            So there you go, you were absolutely correct. I guess in reality though you would struggle to find a manual bike of less than 50cc these days.




                            edit - hahaha I see you just found the same section
