Got your Restricted Licence? Cool.

So now you can put getting your Full Licence in your sights. Under the CBTA assessment system as operated by Ornsby Motorcycle Training, you must have held your Restricted Licence for a MINIMUM of 12 months before applying for your Full Licence. However, you may undertake the final Competency-Based Training & Assessment (CBTA 6F / Full) any time after a period of not-less-than 9 months from the issue date of your Restricted Licence (you will still need to wait a minimum of 12 months before applying for your Full Licence). Successfully passing this assessment will take you to your Full Licence. You can book the CBTA (Full) assessment below.

This period is the perfect time to undertake further training and push your skills further. You can do this one of two ways (or both if you wish):

  1. Undertake the ACC subsidised Ride Forever Silver Course

  2. Undertake one-on-one training with one of our instructors

Should you choose, we can also simply take you through the CBTA (Full) assessment (although we strongly recommend training prior to undertaking this assessment).

Both courses are designed to take you to the next level so you can pass your Competency-Based Training & Assessment (CBTA 6F / Full). And again—there is good news—if you choose to do the Ride Forever Silver Course, ACC will help out by heavily subsidising the cost! Should you choose, we can also simply take you through the CBTA 6F (Full) assessment (although we strongly recommend training prior to undertaking this assessment).
