In 2017 the new Motorcycle Graduated Licensing System (M-GLS) commenced in Tasmania in the North West (July) followed by the South (August). In January 2018 the course was commenced in the North. The M-GLS was introduced to provide new riders with an appropriate level of training for on-road riding.
Under the M-GLS, in order to obtain a motorcycle learners permit you must complete a standardised and compulsory 2 Day Learner Licence course. Followed by a half day Check Ride course and then the 1.5 hr Pre Provisional course.
