Lifting minimum age for motorcycle permits could impact on work, education opportunities

Livestock SA is concerned that raising the minimum age to gain a motorcycle learner permit will impact negatively on work and education opportunities for young people in country areas. The Centre for Automotive Safety Research report: Recommendations for a Graduated Licensing System for Motorcyclists in South Australia had 10 recommendations including: Raising the minimum age to gain a motorcycle learner permit from 16 to 18. Livestock SA believes this recommendation is far too restrictive for South Australian agriculture where motorcycles are an essential part of the business.
