    riding bush unlicensed

    If only the one offence -eg the bike is registered and no other hoon or dangerous driving involved then probably only the penalty notice will result. No implications for licence, no demerit points apply. If it goes to Court with other offences then further orders are possible.

    riding bush unlicensed

    Assuming the riding occurs in Victoria, this is the relevant offence section: ROAD SAFETY ACT 1986 - SECT 18 Offence if driver not licensed S. 18(1) amended by Nos 58/1995 s. 8, 57/1998 s. 15, 81/2006 s. 42(1), 5/2016 s. 36(Sch. 1 item 1), substituted by No. 68/2017 s. 40. (1) A person must not drive a motor vehicle on a highway unless the person— (a) holds a driver licence or learner permit which authorises the person to drive that category ofmotor vehicle; .... highway is defined as: highway" means road or road related area; which is defined as: road" means— (a) an area that is open to or used by the public and is developed for, or has as one of its main uses, the driving or riding of motor vehicles; or ...... road related area" means— ...... (d) an area that is not a road and that is open to or used by the public for driving, riding or parkingmotor vehicles; or .........what this all means is Licence is required in the bush. But what would being caught mean for your son in terms of penalty? max penalty is 60 penalty units/6 months imprisonment. This the the max and not likely for first/young offender. A penalty unit = $161 so max fine is about $9600. However the current on the spot penalty notice amount from VicPol is $793. No demerit points.

    Dartmouth 2 day

    Short report from me. A top ride organised by Urustu (Russ) who very unfortunately misjudged a roadside culvert - not visible on a grassy verge next to the Mitta Mitta River and broke an arm & wrist. Off to hospital. We all wish him well and a speedy recovery. I have sent him this video to cheer him up. Enjoy. Youtube muted the music track for copyright reasons. Here is the alternativeGoogle Drive link.

    Neerim with Mick 12/8

    Great ride Mick. Well done. Thanks to sweeps and to Dylan for the 21 inch tube. There was a tiny split around the base of the valve stem on my HD tube after shop installation on Sat. Now replaced, all good. Great pics.

    Exploring the bay - July 14th

    Spot on - 300 is better for the technical hill climbs, creeks, logs - FX is a fire trail weapon and also good on downhills where it feels planted and precise. FX feels better in corners, but not by much but thats just a 4T thing - interestingly they weigh about the same. IMHO 300 overall does more hard stuff better, FX does the open stuff better. FX will prove to be more maintenance intensive, the 300 just had 1st top end at 7k - 240 hrs - was all still within spec.
