Your bike must be compliant with the "Learner Approved Motorcycle Scheme" as from the 1 October 2012 bikes will be rated on a power to weight ratio. Some 250cc motorcycles now fall outside the power to weight criteria

In late 2013, the NZ Transport Agency expects to introduce a competency based training and assessment (CBTA) course as an alternative path to progress through the restricted and full licensing stages. Once developed, applicants who successfully complete this course will be able to present a CBTA certificate at the agent in lieu of some graduated licensing system requirements.
