That is the complete textual content of the Trip to Overview submission to proposed South Australia Centre for Automotive Security Analysis modifications within the motorbike graduated licensing system (GLS).
It was compiled by the group’s administration committee with enter from greater than 2100 members and supporters, and analysis from Highway Security, Schooling and Psychological specialists from inside Australia, and internationally.

1.1 Three stage hierarchical mannequin
GLS Parts Really helpful by Christie (Austroads, 2014)
Advice: As South Australia already has a 3 stage hierarchical mannequin in place, which parallels the automobile GLS and is in step with different Australian jurisdictions, there isn’t a want for change.
- Bike licensing ought to observe the necessities of Learner, Pink P, Inexperienced P, full licence, as is presently for acquiring a automobile licence.
1.2 Requirement for 12 months automobile licence tenure
Suggestions: In Victoria, a potential motorcyclist should be 18 years outdated earlier than having the ability to apply for a learner motorbike allow. The required age for a automobile learner allow is 16; the required age for a probationary automobile licence is 18. The Victorian system most definitely successfully encourages folks to be taught to drive a automobile earlier than a bike however doesn’t mandate it. This feature would look like fairer for individuals who want solely to journey a bike. Additionally it is seemingly that the best good thing about the automobile licence previous to attaining a bike licence class is by-product of a delay in publicity and larger maturation at an older age. These could be achieved by merely mandating an older learner allow age with out mandating a automobile licence first. It’s subsequently really helpful that South Australia observe the Victorian system. Accordingly, the minimal age for a bike learner allow in South Australia needs to be raised to 18 however a minimal tenure with a automobile licence shouldn’t be a requirement for making use of for a bike allow.
– Whereas Queensland’s motorcyclist GLS requires candidates to have a minimal tenure of 1 12 months on a automobile licence earlier than being eligible to acquire a bike learners allow, “no particular analysis of the measure has but been undertaken” (Christie, p 25, 2014), so arguing that this has had a optimistic impression on fatalities and/or critical accidents to the beneath 18 age bracket is a tenuous hyperlink at greatest.
– The advice that the applicant minimal age be raised to 18 when, statistically, South Australia rider deaths on this age bracket are negligible, particularly when in comparison with the 30 – 45 12 months age bracket, or the ‘returning rider’ group, predominantly within the over 45 12 months age bracket, is one which RTR is unable to assist.
– Elevating rider eligibility to 18 is a transfer that can have a unfavourable impression on financial, social and sporting entry and alternatives.
– Entry to employment alternatives for younger folks with restricted funding for a automobile, and being unable to entry public transport resulting from geographical components, will likely be diminished.
– Entry to participation in lots of off-road motorsport pursuits will likely be denied if candidates are unable to acquire a learners allow on the present entry degree, as many of those pursuits require transit by way of public roads or use public roads as a part of their programs.
– Entry to social pursuits for a lot of regional and rural younger folks will likely be denied by means of lack of public transport choices.
– Whereas it’s acknowledged that younger folks usually lack the cognitive abilities and neurological growth to navigate the complexities of trigger and impact in, probably, increased threat conditions, than that of being in a automobile, coaching and assist as outlined by Glendon (An strategy to novice driver coaching, 2014) with methods reminiscent of testing for ‘threat taking’ propensity, competence in coping with hazards and hazard notion, ‘quick monitoring’ the event of psychological imagery applicable to excessive hazard environments, and together with the function that mentoring can play in supporting younger folks with applicable resolution making in excessive threat conditions in a ‘protected’ (supervised) atmosphere has the identical potential to mitigate the danger of fatality and/or critical harm that’s being proposed by a nominal 2 years of maturation for a teen.
– Whereas CASR has acknowledged, by means of analysis that’s now virtually 20 years outdated and never primarily based on the Era Y cognitive growth, that “riders older than 25 had lower than half the danger of these aged 15 – 19”, the researchers, Mullin et al, concluded that larger using expertise was the rationale for this, with out acknowledging the function that cognitive neuroscience performs within the threat evaluation and resolution making course of (Glendon 2014, Westwell 2011 – Cognitive Neuroscience: implications for profession growth methods and interventions) With cognitive helps and coaching as a part of the rider protected programs for licensing, or as a part of a publish learner mentoring/teaching program, the unfavourable impacts of elevating the eligibility age to 18, as listed above, want by no means must be felt.
– RTR counter proposes that learner eligibility stay at 16 years with extra concentrate on cognitive growth and better order considering abilities as a part of the coaching processes.
– RTR proposes a consultative and collaborative strategy to the re-development of RiderSafe programs for Learner and R-Date riders.
1.three Minimal tenure intervals for learner and intermediate phases
Advice: The intention of a GLS is to make sure that novices acquire expertise in low threat situations for a substantial interval earlier than advancing to much less restrictive licensing phases. Having a minimal tenure interval for every section of a bike GLS would assist serve this goal, together with the imposition of assorted restrictions advocated within the current report for the learner and intermediate phases. It is suggested that the learner section ought to have a minimal tenure of six months, and intermediate section (R-Date licence) ought to have a minimal tenure of three years. These intervals ought to apply no matter different licences held, and no matter age.
– Agree to six months tenure for Learners Allow
– Agree to three years tenure for R-date licence for riders beneath the age of 21 years and 6 months (if learner entry stays at 16 years of age)
– RTR counter proposes If a learner rider is already over the age of 21 and 6 months, the R-date tenure ought to solely be 2 years as this displays their larger maturity degree, cognitive skills and potential for having larger highway person expertise by means of holding a automobile licence beforehand.
– For riders who full their three years tenure on R-date however are nonetheless beneath the age of 21 and 6 months, they may acquire full unrestricted person situations, except the flexibility to journey a non-LAMS motorbike, as that is corresponding to younger drivers being unable to drive excessive powered automobiles till reaching the age of 25
– Full unrestricted licence situations will solely be achieved if the top of the R-date tenure falls after the rider has obtained 21 years and 6 months of age
1.four Clear document for commencement to subsequent GLS degree
Advice: At the moment, in South Australia, as elsewhere in Australia, behaviour through the GLS for automobile drivers and motorcyclist is managed by means of decrease demerit level limits than apply for full licences. The demerit level limits are prone to be sufficiently low that they successfully require very low charges of nonoffending. If these low limits are additionally utilized to the longer minimal intervals of tenure within the completely different GLS phases really helpful above (2.three), then novice riders must preserve lengthy intervals of nonoffending with the intention to progress by means of the GLS. Because of this, it’s not essential to suggest minimal offence-free intervals earlier than commencement to subsequent GLS phases.
1.5 Show of distinctive plates
Advice: South Australia ought to require riders with an R-Date licence class to show P plates while using.
– Agreed that Learner riders have to show an ‘L’ Plate whereas using
– Agreed that R-date riders show a Pink P for the primary 12 months, if over the age of 21 and 6 months, or first 24 months, if beneath the age of 21 and 6 months (on condition that the learner eligibility age stay at 16 years).
– All R-date holders should show a Inexperienced P for the ultimate 12 months of their R-date tenure
– As this may put a far larger variety of riders liable to rear finish collisions whereas travelling in visitors, as they are going to be ineligible to undertake lane filtering if required to show a ‘P’ Plate, RTR proposes that present lane filtering laws be up to date to allow riders displaying P plates to filter
- As it’s presently a part of the R-date course that riders are required to manage their motorbike whereas travelling at low pace (the scenario for lane filtering), riders holding an R-date licence have been taught the mandatory abilities to undertake this manoeuvre safely.
1.6 Obligatory carriage of licence
Advice: Strict obligatory carriage of licence legal guidelines might be thought of in South Australia for all operators of motor automobiles, which incorporates motorcyclists. These legal guidelines would take away the chance for motorists to supply their licence at a later date or time and should assist deter unlicensed motorbike using.
1.7 No carriage of pillion passengers
Advice: As a pillion is prone to make using tougher for a novice, each when it comes to upkeep of steadiness and as a possible supply of distraction, and as pillions have a larger threat of great harm than riders within the occasion of a crash, it is strongly recommended that South Australia prohibit riders on learner permits and R-Date licences from carrying pillion passengers.
– Agreed to no carriage of pillion passengers for Learner riders
– Partially agree to no carriage of pillion passengers for R-date riders
RTR counter proposes If R-date tenure is to be prolonged, pillion passengers ought to solely be permitted within the closing 12 months of tenure (whether or not this be 12 months three for a rider beneath the age of 21 and 6 months, or 12 months 2 for a rider over the age of 21 and 6 months), whereas the rider is displaying their Inexperienced P plates
– The R-date course should embrace the coaching of riders in each the best way to be a pillion, and the best way to practice a pillion, in order that protected carriage will likely be undertaken as soon as licensing situations allow, exemplified within the Northern Territory’s intermediate course to acquire a restricted motorbike licence.
1.eight Night time-time Curfew
Advice: Night time time curfews for novice drivers have been enacted in South Australia and not using a marked lack of mobility, and preliminary outcomes are suggestive of a decline in evening time crashes amongst this group. At the moment, riders with an R Date licence who’re beneath 25 years of age, and who’re and not using a automobile licence or solely maintain a P1 automobile licence, are prohibited from using between midnight and 5am. This restriction would ideally be expanded to incorporate all riders and not using a full motorbike licence. Nevertheless, because the automobile GLS specifies solely these beneath the age of 25, it will arguably be inequitable to use the motorbike evening restrictions to riders of all ages. Nevertheless, it needs to be utilized to all appropriately aged riders with an R Date licence no matter different licences held. It must also be utilized to all riders with a learner allow, no matter different licences held and no matter age
– whereas it’s accepted that evening time using poses larger dangers to a rider, not solely from different automobiles who might ‘look however fail to spot’ a rider, but additionally from wildlife and different highway hazards that aren’t current through the day, the full restriction from evening time using from midnight to 5am shouldn’t be reflective of peak crash instances and days.
– The Centre for Accident Analysis & Highway Security – Queensland (CARRS-Q) outlined of their Bike Security reality sheet of Might 2012 that peak crash instances occurred on the weekends, and between 2 and 6pm.
– “Crashes involving a bike fatality peak within the day (9am to 3pm) and night (3pm to 9pm). One third of deadly motorbike crashes happen on a weekend between 9am Saturday and 9pm Sunday.” Motorcycling Security BITRE Might 2017.
– RTR counter proposes weekend evening time curfew be put in place (from midnight till 5am) for learner riders, no matter different licences held, and R-date riders displaying Pink P plates and being beneath the age of 21 and 6 month, to be corresponding to the principles for probationary automobile drivers. That is additionally reflective of peak crash instances and days for motorbike riders.
– Exemptions to this must be made for these riders utilizing a bike for transportation to and from employment solely, the place different alternatives, reminiscent of public transport, don’t exist.
1.9 Zero BAC
Advice: There’s a sturdy relationship between alcohol consumption and crash involvement amongst motorcyclists, and a zero BAC when using a bike is a requirement as a part of the GLS within the majority of Australian jurisdictions. Due to this fact, it is strongly recommended that each one
riders with a learner allow or R-Date licence, no matter different licences held, should have a zero BAC when using.
1.10 No towing of Trailers
Advice: On condition that towing might enhance threat for novice riders and that few riders can be negatively affected by prohibition of towing, is really helpful towing restriction be put in place for riders with a learner allow. It will be affordable to allow towing for riders with an R-Date licence.
– Agreed for Learner riders
– RTR counter proposes that R-date riders ought to solely be allowed to tow a trailer within the closing 12 months of their R-date tenure, whereas displaying Inexperienced P plates, if tenure is prolonged past present phrases.
1.11 No use of cell phone or different communication gadget
Advice: Cell phone use, whether or not hand-held or hands-free, is understood to impair driving associated duties. All cellphone use whereas driving has subsequently been prohibited for novice automobile drivers inside the South Australian GLS. This needs to be prolonged to all novice riders (learners and R Date) inside the motorbike GLS, no matter different licences held
– Agreed concerning cell phone use – fingers free or hand-held
– RTR counter proposes that different communication gadgets reminiscent of rider to rider communication and GPS navigation needs to be permitted as these have profit to a rider when being mentored/coached, and for navigation functions.
– Novice automobile drivers are capable of take GPS navigation instruction and talk with passengers, so this may hold restrictions comparable.
1.12 Decrease demerit level threshold for licence disqualification
Advice: It is suggested that the decrease demerit level thresholds which can be utilized within the learner section even be utilized when the rider holds an R Date licence. Nevertheless, if a minimal three-year tenure is required for R Date licences, then consideration needs to be given to demerit level limits per 12 months moderately than throughout the complete tenure of the R Date section.
1.13 Computerized transmission restriction for novice riders
Advice: There’s a sound theoretical foundation for requiring rider show competency on a guide motorbike earlier than being licensed to journey one. South Australia ought to undertake the restriction to an automated motorbike if examined on one which applies within the majority of different jurisdictions in Australia. This needs to be the case for each the learner allow and R-Date licence
1.14 Enhanced visibility necessities
Advice: Requiring learner riders to put on excessive visibility clothes ought to present a profit not solely in aiding conspicuity but additionally would alert different motorists to the inexperienced nature of the rider. As such riders are prone to nonetheless be studying highway craft (together with positioning), their feeling complacent about their visibility is much less seemingly. South Australia ought to observe the lead of Victoria and require that motorcyclists with a learner allow put on excessive visibility clothes when using.
– RTR doesn’t agree with this suggestion
– As outlined within the CARR-Q ‘State of the Highway’ reality sheet, 2012, 58% of deadly motorbike crashes concerned one other car. In multi-vehicle crashes, the opposite car was most frequently at fault. Generally, this concerned violations of the motorcyclist’s proper of method – highlighting the significance of defensive using abilities and lively threat administration for riders.
– At no level is using HiViz instructed as a technique to mitigate these violations.
– A Victorian parliamentary enquiry into motorbike security in 2014 failed to seek out conclusive correlation between the carrying of HiViz clothes on a bike and elevated conspicuity on the highway, because the confounds of research reminiscent of HURT and MAIDS, and the, now over a decade outdated, NZ research used to justify this suggestion, are that those that voluntarily put on HiViz clothes are seemingly extra conservative by nature of their using fashion to keep up conspicuity on the highway.
– Current analysis by the Australian Nationwide College has purported the ‘look however fail to spot’ phenomenon in direction of motorcyclists, no matter headlights or clothes worn.
– Bikes, being small and infrequently sooner transferring than different automobiles, will not be perceived as a ‘menace’ when info from the eyes is processed by the amygdala (lizard mind – space that processes the ‘battle or flight’ response), thus usually producing the ‘look however fail to spot’ response from automobile drivers.
– Cognitively an individual will retain approx. 80% of what they’ve personally skilled, thus alerting the mind to its relevance – that means that those that have ridden bikes, or have them as a part of their ‘consciousness’ will likely be much more prone to see them in visitors and on-road conditions. That is supported by analysis carried out by quite a few insurance coverage firms within the UK, concluding that those that journey bikes are 30% much less prone to make a declare for a automobile incident. The College of Nottingham concurs in its 2012 paper “Driving expertise and scenario consciousness in hazard detection” that motorcyclists have as much as 50% larger hazard detection when in a automobile than those that solely drive a automobile.
– Australia Submit, who’s supply employees are all required to put on HiViz, has no important information to assist the carrying of HiViz both. Some areas report no important change in incidents. Some report a discount in incidents – it’s subjective. Australia Submit stories a discount total, however they’ll’t account for whether or not it was the hello viz, the additional security coaching or whether or not reporting has dropped resulting from disincentives of extra detailed investigations and remedial applications following a reported incident.
– Because the mind detects motion earlier than registering color it’s really helpful by RTR that extra complete coaching be undertaken on-road at learner and R-date degree to instill highway craft abilities and the need for larger conspicuity on the highway. Being extra conscious of different highway customers blind spots in a wide range of on-road conditions, eg twin carriageway, multi-carriageway, in filtering conditions, and many others, will present larger help in direction of motorcyclist conspicuity to different highway customers than the carrying of HiViz clothes – significantly in city areas the place there’s a plethora of visible distractions and hues alongside carriageways.
– As well as, since, as reported by CARRS-Q, and outlined above, in over half of motorbike fatalities one other car is concerned, and overwhelmingly, in these instances, it’s the fault of the automobile driver violating the motorcyclist’s proper of method – offering alternatives for automobile drivers to be extra conscious of bikes on the highway by including larger emphasis on particularly on the lookout for them as a part of the on-road learner section (whether or not that is by means of formal instruction, or parental instruction) will share the accountability for conspicuity in incidents between automobiles and bikes.
1.15 Obligatory protecting clothes necessities
Advice: The usage of protecting clothes is a confirmed countermeasure for explicit kinds of harm and its wider use by motorcyclists can be prone to have a profit for highway security outcomes. Nevertheless, the ranking of the protecting good thing about explicit articles of motorbike clothes has but to be established and such steerage for selecting protecting clothes can be important for the efficient operation of a compulsory system. Due to this fact, mandating using protecting clothes right now can’t be really helpful, though developments on this discipline must be monitored in order that such a requirement could be launched sooner or later
– Whereas it’s acknowledged that protecting clothes has effectiveness towards some motorbike accidents, and is strongly inspired by Trip to Overview, the mandating of protecting clothes apart from helmets (as is presently the case) is very unlikely to be supported by RTR sooner or later.
– Requirements of protecting clothes range wildly in Australia, and even the adoption of European requirements is not going to deliver prime quality, inexpensive, objective constructed for motorcycling and climate applicable clothes to Australia.
– It’s presently the remit of insurance coverage firms, in areas such because the UK and USA, to find out protection and legal responsibility primarily based on protecting clothes getting used. This isn’t an space for presidency regulation, both at learner degree or past.
– Trip to Overview wish to see higher training and consciousness of potential accidents which will consequence from lack of security gear which might fall beneath the class of threat evaluation.
1.16 Energy to weight ratio/Learner Accredited Bike Scheme
Advice: The LAMS has been in operation in South Australia for over 10 years and is in use in each jurisdiction in Australia, in addition to New Zealand. It is suggested that LAMS be retained in South Australia.
1.17 Moped (beneath 50cc) necessities
Advice: In gentle of the excessive crash charges per distance travelled with mopeds and the truth that mopeds are uncovered to comparable dangers in visitors to bikes, it is strongly recommended that using a moped and not using a motorbike licence in South Australia be prohibited. These wishing to
journey a moped must progress by means of the motorbike GLS in the identical method as these wishing to journey a scooter or motorbike
– Whereas it’s agreed that moped (beneath 50cc’s) customers have to undertake coaching as they’re presently uncovered to the identical dangers in visitors as a motorcyclist, it’s not agreed that they be obligated to undertake the complete vary of GLS coaching and restrictions.
– South Australia presently provides a ‘moped rider’ course by means of its RiderSafe applications.
– This course is presently a voluntary enterprise
– RTR counter proposes that this course be made obligatory and a selected ‘moped’ endorsement be added to a rider’s automobile licence (as is presently performed for a rider wishing to journey a Can Am Spyder and not using a motorbike licence).
1.18 Novice rider testing
Advice: There’s a development in direction of the requirement for demonstration of using abilities on a highway earlier than a rider is permitted to journey on-road unsupervised. This requirement has been really helpful by the EU and OECD, and has been adopted in Victoria. South Australia presently requires an indication of motorcycling dealing with skills off-road. It is suggested that an on-road testing element is added to this. The Victorian check might probably present a mannequin for this.
– Agreed. RTR wholeheartedly endorses on-road coaching and testing to be included in accredited coaching and licensing programs.
– RTR helps the adoption of a Victorian fashion “Test Trip” element to the R-date course necessities with appropriately educated coaches/mentors.
– RTR additionally suggest the introduction of exterior and accredited threerd occasion coaching organisations as prevalent in different states.
Areas which have been marked for additional analysis
2.1 Exit check for novice riders
Advice: South Australia presently doesn’t require riders to undertake an exit check earlier than graduating from an R Date to a full, unrestricted motorbike licence. The arguments in favour of introducing an exit check are largely theoretical in nature: guaranteeing that riders have gained adequate expertise through the restricted section to develop a bigger ability set for using with out restrictions. It could be that proof from the analysis of the brand new Victorian GLS will present steerage as as to if the addition of an exit check has advantages. Nevertheless, at this stage, it is strongly recommended that South Australia retain the automated development from an R Date to a full licence if the minimal tenure of the R Date section is elevated to 3 years.
– RTR helps “development” testing/coaching to maneuver between Pink and Inexperienced P plates – this wants to incorporate carriage of a pillion, towing a trailer, additional hazard detection for evening time using, gradual manoeuvring of a bike and additional braking coaching
– RTR counter proposes that riders beneath the age of 21 and 6 months proceed to be restricted to LAMS permitted bikes upon completion of R-date situations (on the proviso that Learner eligibility stays at 16) as this will likely be corresponding to novice automobile drivers being restricted from excessive powered automobiles till the age of 25.
2.2 Hazard Notion Take a look at (HPT) for novice riders
Advice: Motorcyclists needs to be required to finish the brand new Austroads Bike HPT as a part of the GLS with the intention to qualify for a learner allow. This could apply no matter any automobile licence already held by the rider and no matter whether or not the rider has already accomplished the Automobile HPT.
– As well as, it needs to be obligatory that each one learner rider candidates undertake a primary eye display screen check (as is finished for highway customers with prescription lenses) to make sure that their eyesight is 20/20.
– As it’s accepted that riders are in a extra susceptible and unprotected place than automobile drivers it stands to cause that measures such nearly as good eyesight be required.
2.three Danger-based screening exams
Advice: It could be tough to design an appropriate risk-based screening check and even when one might be developed, there may be restricted proof for a profit associated to threat primarily based coaching applications past discussions of attitudes, motivations and dangers throughout customary coaching. A threat primarily based screening check shouldn’t be included in a South Australian motorbike GLS.
– RTR counter proposes that risk-based screening exams be used as a part of the cognitive evaluation for learner riders.
– Additional session with psychologists and neuroscientists will yield larger assist and fashions for this evaluation requirement.
– Danger-based testing, whereas it could not have the ability to predict threat taking behaviour with 100% accuracy, does point out those that have a predilection in direction of risk-taking behaviours, which supplies a chance for publish course mentoring and training, as outlined by Glendon in An Method to Novice Driver Coaching, 2014.
Parts not presently really helpful by Christie, 2014
three.1 On-road supervision of learner riders
Advice: On-road supervision of all learner riders is probably harmful by means of will increase in using publicity and rider distraction, each for the novice and the supervisor. Riders in South Australia already have to show primary competency previous to using on public roads with a learner allow. It is suggested that South Australia doesn’t require supervision of learner riders.
– Agree, with the availability that on-road coaching develop into a part of the learner coaching course or, failing this, much more complete coaching is undertaken with the intention to acquire a learner’s allow than is presently delivered by means of approx. eight hours of instruction, subsequently a evaluate and revamp of the learners course is required.
– If the above-mentioned provisions are unable to be met, RTR doesn’t agree with the above assertion
three.2 On-road teaching or mentoring of novice riders
Advice: It is a uncommon case wherein appreciable effort has been undertaken to judge the effectiveness of a possible element of a GLS. The findings of the analysis of the VicRoads on-road teaching trial counsel that on-road teaching or mentoring of newly licensed riders shouldn’t be included in a GLS. Nevertheless, the brand new Victorian GLS contains teaching of riders with an intermediate licence. It’s doable obligatory program undertaken with much less skilled riders is simpler. Nonetheless, the shortage of promising findings usually for on-road teaching make it tough to assist its presence in a GLS. It will be prudent to watch the outcomes of the Victorian GLS, significantly any that may be associated to the on-road teaching element, to permit for consideration at a later date.
– RTR counter proposes that publish learner, pre R-date, mentoring be undertaken in comparable vogue to that of the Victorian ‘Test Trip’ program as it’s critical for novice riders to be given applicable on-road instruction in a ‘protected’ and structured studying atmosphere – as outlined in Glendon, 2014. This additionally supplies alternative for attitudinal coaching for youthful novice riders in respect to their restricted cognitive growth in respect to risk-assessment and hazard notion.
– Whereas the Victorian program has not made conclusive hyperlinks between on-road coaching and assist and a discount in novice rider incidents, that is seemingly resulting from its comparatively latest introduction into the Victorian GLS, and isn’t adequate cause to reductions its significance to riders when recommending modifications to the South Australian GLS system.
– If the argument important hyperlink has not been made between teaching and incident discount, the identical argument could be made for the carrying of HiViz, but that has been included as a suggestion by CASR, and there may be much more analysis performed that’s inconclusive than round the advantages of on-road teaching/mentoring.
three.three Obligatory rider coaching
Advice: The expertise in Victoria suggests an urge for food for pre-learner coaching amongst practically all novice motorcyclists and having a competency evaluation previous to using on the highway is in step with the necessity for coaching. By making such coaching obligatory, it’s doable to manage the coaching curriculum, construction and length, and be sure that all riders are receiving uniform security messages and equal instruction in abilities. Such coaching ought to embrace an emphasis additionally on attitudinal and motivational points, and management of threat. South Australia already has obligatory pre-learner coaching and it is strongly recommended that it’s retained
– Agreed, with provision that the curriculum mirror greatest apply content material and supply strategies, that trainers and coaching suppliers are commonly audited for high quality evaluation and that coaching supply be opened as much as ‘person alternative’ supply by permitting interstate suppliers, reminiscent of HART and Keep Upright, to ship the South Australian curriculum to South Australian riders.
– RTR proposes a consultative and collaborative strategy with the rider neighborhood, coaching suppliers (non-public and authorities) to evaluate and re-develop present coaching curricula for riders in South Australia.
Overview must be undertaken on the present pace restrictions on learner riders and moped (beneath 50cc) riders, as it’s a harmful apply to drive riders to journey under the stream of visitors on the open highway.
Coaching for the rising variety of Can Am Spyder (reverse trike) riders must be thought of at a future date, as there may be presently no coaching for this car.
The present licensing regime for these wishing to journey a Can Am Spyders, however who don’t presently have a bike licence, additionally must be reviewed. Step 1
