The Full Licence practical test should take around half an hour, which includes checking your motorcycle and giving you feedback at the end. The test will involve you demonstrating safe and competent driving in a variety of different situations in a busy environment.
Just like in the Restricted Licence test, you may bring a support person with you as long as they meet the requirements. If you are feeling very anxious and you think this will help you relax then we encourage you to do so. Remember that your support person must not distract you or your testing officer, or you will have to re-sit the test.
Don’t worry if you don’t pass on the first go – you can always try again. Your testing officer will explain why you weren’t successful and what you should work on before re-sitting your practical driving test. You will still be able to practice on your Restricted Licence.
When you’re ready to re-sit your test you will need to make another booking and pay the additional test fee.
Be proud of yourself! It’s the testing officer’s favourite part of the day to say ‘you passed!’ and to hand you your temporary licence. Your photographic licence will be sent to you in the mail. You will have full freedom to drive your motorcycle whenever you like, wherever you like!
We'll have you road ready in no time.
