What is the Learner Approved Motorcycle Scheme (LAMS)?

The Learner Approved Motorcycle Scheme (LAMS) is a system established in Australia to ensure that motorcycles are suitable for learner riders.

The scheme applies to all new and used motorcycles up to 660cc and sets performance and engine capacity limits to provide a safer riding environment for learner riders.

Only motorcycles that meet the LAMS criteria are approved under the scheme and are listed on a government website.

LAMS approved motorcycles are designed to be easy to handle, stable and have a low power-to-weight ratio. This makes them suitable for learner riders who are still developing their riding skills.

LAMS ensures that learner riders are provided with a safer and more controlled environment to develop their riding skills before upgrading to a more powerful motorcycle.

The LAMS scheme helps to reduce the risk of accidents and promotes responsible riding for learner riders.

What are the LAMS restrictions?

The Learner Approved Motorcycle Scheme (LAMS) imposes the following 3 restrictions on motorcycles:

  1. Engine Capacity: The engine capacity is restricted to 660cc or less.
  2. Power-to-Weight Ratio: The power-to-weight ratio must not exceed 150kW/t.
  3. Output (electric motorcycles): Power up to 25kW or less for electric motorcycles.
Are Modifications allowed to a LAMS bike?

A learner approved motorcycle that is modified by incorporating optional components offered by its manufacturer, or otherwise modified so that it continues to comply with the manufacturer’s specifications is allowed, so long as it does not increase the power output of the motorcycle, nor reduce the tare weight of the motorcycle. 

In NSW, it is the rider's responsibility to ensure that the motorcycle they are riding complies with the LAMS restrictions at all times. If the motorcycle has been modified, the rider should check that it still meets LAMS criteria before riding. If in doubt, the rider should contact the manufacturer or the Roads and Maritime Services for clarification.

What is the LAMS licensing process in NSW?

In New South Wales (NSW), Australia, the motorcycle licensing scheme is a progressive system that involves the following steps:

  1. Learner Plate (L-plate): Before you can ride on the road, you need to obtain a Learner plate (L-plate). You must be at least 16 years old 9 months. You must complete a 'Pre-Learner Course', and also pass the motorcycle Rider Knowledge Test.

  2. Provisional P1 Plate: After holding the Learner plate for at least 6 months, you can progress to a Provisional P1 plate. This requires passing a riding skills test.

  3. Provisional P2 Plate: After holding a P1 plate for at least 12 months without incurring any driving offenses, you can progress to a Provisional P2 plate. This involves another 12-month period of supervised riding.

  4. Unrestricted Licence: After holding a P2 plate for at least 24 months, you can take a riding skills test to obtain an unrestricted motorcycle licence.

Note: The above progression is a general outline and may be subject to change based on individual circumstances. You should check the most up-to-date information on the Road & Maritime Services website in NSW.
