Course Details

About the Motorcycle Operator Skills Test (MOST)

Please Note:  This course is delivered in English. 

There is an expectation that you are able to understand English at a basic level. 

If this is not the case, please bring with you an interpreter who will be able to translate the course for you.

Please Note: If you are applying to upgrade from a NSW Learner Licence to a Provisional Licence, you must book the 'TfNSW Pre-Provisional Training Course'. If you are unsure whether you are eligible to book a MOST Only assessment, please contact Service NSW on 13 77 88.

The riding test is designed to measure your ability to handle a motorcycle, including starting, accelerating, turning and braking. The test forms part of the pre-provisional rider training course. The MOST is also used to assess riders seeking overseas licence conversions, as well as for assessing older riders.

You must have a valid NSW Licence or a TfNSW Customer Number to book a MOST.  If you don't yet have a TfNSW Customer Number, click here for more information.

How the test works
The test consists of 8 test segments. None of the segments are difficult or dangerous for a skilled rider. To pass, you must complete all of the test segments. When you're on the test course, you’ll be given specific instructions for each test.

Points are accrued for errors, such as touching painted lines, putting your foot down on the ground during an activity, or hitting cones.

  • If you stall the engine during a test, you will accumulate points.
  • If you fail to conduct a head check before moving away during a test, you’ll also accumulate points.

To pass, you need to score 8 points or less. A score of 9 or more points is a fail.

If you're taking the test as part of a Pre-Provisional Course, you can watch other people undertaking their test, but please respect their right to privacy and a fair attempt at the test.

When to take the test
You can take the MOST only if you have been directly instructed to do so by Service NSW or Transport for NSW, or if you have previously failed the MOST and are eligible for a re-test. Riders who are ready to make the step up from learner to provisional licence must book the 'Pre-Provisional Course and MOST'.

Booking the test
When you’re ready to take the test, you’ll need to make a booking and pay the required fee.
