Almost all motorcyclists in NSW and drivers of several popular makes and models, such as all Ford Lasers and many Mazdas made before 2005, will also have to pay more as their vehicles cannot run on ethanol-blended petrol.

Easy riders not ready for the roads

the age VICTORIA has a glaring gap in its road-safety regime: the testing and licensing of motorcyclists. As The Age has revealed, the system is regarded as ''a joke'' and ''totally inadequate'' by accredited private providers who conduct testing for VicRoads. Car licences outnumber motorcycle licences 11 to one, but the ratio of car-to-bike fatalities is four to one. Almost one in three deaths and serious injuries among riders involved novice riders. Police note that rider error caused about 70 per cent of trauma crashes, compared with 50 per cent for other drivers. Everything points to inadequate training and testing.

Age Article - Riding the odds

More motorcyclists than ever are taking to the roads, but the low skill level of licensing puts novices at unnecessary risk.
