Licence, Protocol and Policies
Now that you know what the track and a ride day is all about, the next few pages will tell you what you need to get in on the action!
To participate in Phillip Island Ride Days you will need to hold a minimum Provisional Motorcycle Licence issued by the road transport authority in your state/country. Your licence must be current and valid for your type of motorcycle. (Please note: Recreational Permits or Learner’s Permits are not accepted at Phillip Island Circuit. Some Competition Licences may be accepted; please contact our office for more information.)
Phillip Island Ride Days are designed to be enjoyed by all, from the freshly licensed P-plater to the regular track day punter who’s been riding his whole life. With such a wide variety of skills and experience present on track at any one time, all riders are expected to adhere to some basic behavioural rules. These will be covered fully in the compulsory Safety Briefing on the morning of the event, but here are some important highlights:
Overtaking – Overtaking may be done both on the inside or outside of another rider, provided a minimum clearance of 6-8 feet (2-3 metres) is given at all times. Close passing is monitored stringently by flag marshals and will not be tolerated.
Flags – Flags are the only means of communication staff have with you whilst you are on track. Please pay close attention when you are briefed on flags in the morning, and whilst on track be sure to follow all flag instructions.
Stunting – Don’t do it.
