Review of post-licence motorcycle rider training in New South Wales
Keywords: Driver/Rider Training, Road Safety Strategy, Motorcyclists
Submission Date: 2019
Fully licensed motorcyclists represented over two thirds of riders killed on New South Wales (NSW) roads from 2010 – 2014. An ongoing need to address crash risks among this cohort is recognised and there is strong support for post-licence rider training (PLRT) among rider advocates and stakeholder groups. This research examined the PLRT environment in NSW to assess the extent to which NSW PLRT courses targeted identified rider skills and competencies. A desktop review of available courses was supplemented by interviews with training providers. A wide range of courses was identified, most of which appeared to potentially support rider risk management.
