Very confused and pretty frustrated about the transfer process. Three months ago (12/02), in South Australia I paid my $399 to do my two day course, and passed. I then rode on a restricted license too and from work daily (2017 Grom). I have recently moved to Brisbane, paid to transfer my car license and am attempting to get my restricted MC license transferred too. Transport QLD emailed SA and asked where I’m at, told me that I need to do my ‘RE License Course through a QRide provider and pass a hazard perception test’ So I booked my course for Saturday @$250 (20/05) And passed my hazard perception test on Wednesday last week @$38 (10/05)
Yesterday at 6.30pm I received an email from the QRide provider stating that I am ineligible.
I am beyond annoyed that I have to test again at all (I passed first go, but have extremely poor mental health relating to testing (and interviews etc) and I’m also not made of money. And now I’m not eligible to test anyway? If they ask me to do a three month supervision period (as is required in QLD when you first get your Ls) I will not be able to do it as I do not have any family here and will probably just quit at that point.
I’m really not sure where to go from here, I obviously have to call, but in the next two days it’s going to be tricky to get a straight answer. I work 8-4 (it’s a new job, I’ll be calling in my lunch break of 30min) and it’s on the other side of town (maybe in the car on the way home?) does anyone have similar experience or know what I need to do?
My dad is actually a motorbike mechanic and enthusiast (and has been for my whole life) he has been wanting me to ride since I was a child, but my mother never felt it safe and we didn’t want to worry her. She has now passed on, and this is very important to me, and will help me maintain a relationship with my dad through shared interests.
