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.

AJL Training also offer One on One Courses for those who have little or no experience with motor cycles (or do not drive a manual car) to build confidence prior to undertaking a Pre-Learner course;  those who require further training one on one as deemed by an instructor;  or a pre-competency assessment for those wishing to undertake a Conversion of their current Overseas Motor Cycle Licence.

The Check Ride Course

Check Rides provide a great opportunity for new learner license holders to obtain additional rider training and riding advice. Check Rides are used to review your riding skills and prepare you for your Provisional license training and assessment. A Check Ride involves an on-road ride and a group debrief with your trainer afterwards. During your Check Ride your trainer will guide discussions which will include road craft tactics and strategies, and safe riding skills and behaviours.
