Riding a motorcycle is enjoyed by people of all ages. However, compared to driving other road vehicles, riding a motorcycle can place you at higher risk than others. If you are involved in a crash, the chances of being injured are very high.
The term 'heavy vehicle' applies to the trucks, B-doubles and road trains that transport goods across Australia. It also includes buses, trams, agricultural machinery, livestock transporters, tankers, grain and delivery trucks and other long and possibly slow moving vehicles on our roads. The following provides information on upgrading your licence to a higher class.
Drivers required to give a minimum of 1m when passing a cyclist where the speed limit is 60km/h or less or 1.5m where the speed limit is over 60km/h. Cyclists of all ages can ride on footpaths. These laws will come into effect on 25 October 2015.
