Law in Australia
Posted July 11, 2002 - 12:04 PM
To ride enduro's in Australia does the bike have to be road registred?
Im planning on driving a 4x4 for the majority of my traveling up the east coast, do i really need a bike that's road registred? considering that it will spend the majority of the time offroad.
Any other info regarding biking in australia would be greatly appreciated.

Your initial 12 months of bike license you are limited to 250cc then open (no age issue- I think).
If you have a full license including motobike then I think you will probably be ok for any capacity.
The rego laws are different in each state including recreational rego in some states. Rego'd bikes is a better way to go if you can cos it opens up far more options but if you know where to go (local knowedge) there are many sweet places to ride.
Enduro's are mainly non rego however road trials and most rallies require rego. In South Aus you can get permits for non rego'd bikes if you are joining an organised event.
Remember WR's out of the box are rego'd here so you can still get a competitive bike with a plate.

A registered bike will be so much more versatile, and open up more riding areas to you, and if you wnat to ride in national or state forests, you have to be licenced, registered and have permits (no cost, just apply to the Forestry commissions) Same for public beaches etc, you have to have a registered bike.

I ride in dirt bike heaven on the NSW North Coast with a few blokes who are unregistered and unlicenced and we have never had any worries in the bush. But it is illegal dont forget.
