If you own a motorcycle and are keen to take your riding to the next level, we can put you in touch with a local club and issue a licence which allows you to ride at a wide range of events. Motorcycling Queensland licence holders, clubs and participants are provided with insurance cover and are kept up to date with events in and around your area.
