Getting your motorcycle license in Queensland through MRS is simple! Our courses will give you the tools you need to experience the thrill and convenience of riding in a controlled, safe and understanding environment.

Since October 2016, how you get your RE Learner Licence in Queensland has changed, you will need to:

  • Hold a provisional or open car licence and have held the licence for at least 1 year. This makes sure you have on-road driving experience before you learn to ride.
  • Successfully complete a Q-Ride pre-learner training and assessment course
    Note: If you live outside a 100km radius of a Q-Ride training centre, you may choose to apply for an exemption from completing the course, however if you are exempt from the course your will need to hold your RE learner licence for longer.
  • Pass a motorcycle knowledge test.
  • Be eligible to commence training.

The new Pre-Learner training and assessment course was introduced to better prepare learner riders by enabling them to gain basic riding knowledge and motorcycle handling skills in a safe environment before riding on-road.

COURSE: MRS Q-RIDE Pre-Learner Course

To upgrade from a class RE Learner licence to your RE license, you will need to complete a Q-Ride training and assessment course.

Q-Ride is a competency-based training and assessment program. During the course you will need to demonstrate your competency on a learner approved motorcycle (LAMS).

You will need to hold your class RE Learner licence for at least 3 months before you can enroll in a Q-Ride course. You can, however, participate in supervised training courses. Click here to enquire!

You can apply for your RE or R licence once you get your Q-Ride certificate (or competency declaration) from MRS.

Your competency declaration is only valid for 12 months from the date of issue. If you do not present it within 12 months, it will expire and you will need to undertake Q-Ride again to obtain a new one.

You will need to hold your RE Licence for a period of TWO YEARS and adhere to the RE rules. In the first year of holding your RE licence, you must have a BAC of 0.00 and you may not carry a pillion passenger, nor can you lane filter.


To upgrade from an RE licence to an R license, you will need to complete a Q-Ride R training and assessment course on an unrestricted motorcycle.

Once you have obtained your R Licence, you'll be able to legally ride all motorcycles!
