Learner Approved Motorbikes (LAM)

The Learner Approved Motorcycle Scheme (LAM Scheme) was introduced on 1 July 2009, and restricts class RE (restricted) motorcycle licence holders to a combined power-to-weight ratio and engine capacity restriction. The former 250 millilitre (mL) engine capacity restriction no longer applies.

The objectives of the scheme are to:

  • improve safety for novice motorcycle riders
  • achieve consistency between Queensland and the other eastern states (New South Wales, Victoria, Australian Capital Territory, Tasmania and South Australia).

**The LAM Scheme restricts learner riders to motorcycles that comply with both of the following capacity restrictions:

  • power-to-weight ratio must not exceed 150 kW/t
  • engine capacity must not exceed 660 mL.

The power-to-weight ratio is a comparison of the engine output to the weight of the motorcycle. It is a measure of the motorcycle’s performance.
