My motorcycle licence

R-Date class

After successfully completing the Rider Safe advanced course, present your certificate of competency at any Service SA customer service centre to apply for a R-Date licence.

R-Date class means that you are restricted to riding a learner approved motorcycle (PDF, 1021 KB).

Steps to get a Class R-Date licence

  1. Minimum age 19
  2. If you do not already hold a driver’s licence or a car learner’s permit, you must pass the Hazard Perception Test
  3. Pass a Rider Safe Advanced course
  4. You must hold your motorcycle learner's permit for at least 12 months.

If your Advanced Rider Safe course was passed on an automatic motorcycle you will be restricted to ‘Automatic Motor Bike’ on your licence.

If you hold a driver's licence, the R-Date motorcycle class will be added to your driver’s licence.

Once you have passed the advanced Rider Safe course you must be issued with a South Australian driver's licence endorsed with the R-Date class before you can ride a motorbike without L Plates.

If you do not already hold a full licence for another class of licence, for example a car or truck, you will be subject to provisional licence conditions and rules.

If you hold a full licence for another class of licence, you do not have to display P plates on your motorbike and are not subject to provisional licence conditions and rules.

Zero BAC applies when riding a motorcycle for all R-Date licence holders regardless of whether a full licence is held.

Riders on an R-Date licence can carry pillion passengers.
