Hopefully most of you know what the check ride is, it’s basically the motorcycle equivalent of the 120 hours you do in a car is the best way to describe it in my opinion. So you have your learners, awesome, you’ve been out riding on your bike & now you want to sit your licence test. You call up all excited to book it in & then they ask “have you done your check ride?” Wait, what? Check ride? What check ride? Yes you need to complete the 3.5 hour check ride at least 1 calendar month prior to your licence test. It is mandatory & you have to do it (just like your car hours), plus it gives you lots of feedback on if you need to go & practice before your licence test. Just don’t leave it too late, remember your learners expires after 15 months. VicRoads don’t send you a reminder so it’s up to you, put it in your calendar so you don’t forget.
