So you’ve decided to get your motorcycle licence—that’s awesome! Getting your motorcycle licence is a three-stage process.
The New Zealand Transport Agency (NZTA) (the Government entity responsible for driver and rider licensing) has introduced a new assessment system which will eventually replace the old system. This system–Competency-Based Training & Assessment (CBTA)–places greater emphasis on improving rider skill through training. Under the CBTA Assessment System, the minimum time period it will take an absolute beginner to go from Learner Licence to Full Licence is 12 months.
