    Licence type for QLD to ride Honda DN-01 and integra 700?

    Can someone please confirm if an R-A licence is what is needed to ride these machines? A Honda guy yesterday told me full R would be needed. My logic is car drivers dont need manual to drive all the new tipronic dual clutch autos??

    I was so excited to see the Honda Integra yesterday but after sitting on it (im 6'4) and seeing the lack of room under the seat its not for me.

     Don't think QLD do a automatic only motorbike license

     

    Yeah they do. Q-Ride calls it a "scooter licence"

    If the bike has a manual clutch, Its classed as a manual. If it is clutchless (for example the Honda CT110 'Postie Bike') but still has gears, Its classed as an Automatic..

    The Honda DN-01 is an Automatic (CVT) 
    and the Integra is a dual clutch transmission (DCT) which "I think" works as fully automatic? 

    I can't imagine a manual licence would be required for either of these.

    I was told by q-ride that postie bikes and the other newish clutchless geared (sym?) bikes actually need a manual licence in queensland.

     because both these bikes are over 650cc in queensland you will need a full motorcycle licence (manual).Q ride only do a automatic licence (scooter licence) beacause any scooter is in the LAMS catagory.With these larger automatic bikes they only do a manual licence.Would also be the same for the aprilia mana automatic sports bike.

    Are you sure?.. Because I know with the likes of 800cc Suzuki Burgman only an Automatic licence is required (RA) Yet, the burgman executive has buttons to manually change gears.

    You have seen a 800cc Burgman? 

    Those buttons to which you refer don't "manually cnange gears".  Rather an over-ride mode allows use of "five (six in later models) pre-determined CVT ratios to shift through", . . . . but still there is no clutch.

    My very-first powered two-wheeler (in 1967) was a 65cc Honda Supercub which had centrifical/auto clutch control.  My licence back then was not of the manual type.

    As can be clearly noticed - there is no clutch lever on the left handgrip.

    One way to determine the matter.  Turn up for a Rider's Licence (the on road bit) Test on one of those (large capacity clutchless) and see what kind of licence a successful score gets one.

     Maybe it has changed as i did my course over 3 years ago with all these automatic bikes now on the market.I might just say even though it is easy to get your automatic licence maybe it is worth it to go for your manual as most people on the forum go to a bike at sometime as well as owning a scoot. But all the best with whatever licence you go for and keep us informed with what you purchase.Big Smile
