    Default Taking a motorbike test

    Hi All,

    Think of getting OH a motorbike license test for his birthday. he rode a bike 20 years ago but does not hold a current licesne. What we have to do?
    Get him a few bike lessons then put in for the test - like with a car?

    Anyone know a good one on the North Shore?

    Thanks

    Nanny

    Hi Nanny


    If he has a current UK bike license, he would just have to do the theory but if not, he'd be treated as if he was a new NZ rider and have to do it in stages;

    To jump through all the hoops would cost just over $300, without any lessons. But I'm guessing he wouldn't need many because you never forget how to ride a bike!

    There's more info here http://www.ltsa.govt.nz/licensing/motorcycle/index.html

    PS Can't help with an instructor though, sorry.

    and the theory test (scratch off/multiple guess) is really easy too ...
    you can even buy 'practice tests' from the AA which are pretty similar (if not the same!) as the actual tests ...
