I would not say the previous

I would not say the previous government improved anything much for riders at all. The VMAC was a waste of space. One of the more loathsome aspects of that previous government was its advisory committees and good riddance to them. Rider licensing in Victoria is pathetic. All of us who ride and got our licences under the system know that as fact. Not the people doing the testing - they are fantastic, but the pathetic system in place is patently stupid. Sadder still is our Government and Vicroads systems hiding in a labyrinth of committees and research data collection groups who have no idea of serving and are driven solely by self existence.
