Rules for motorcycle riders

Motorcycle riders must generally obey the same road rules as drivers, however there are some additional rules that apply. Here’s a summary of the main ones to be aware of.

The summaries RACV provide on Victorian road rules are based on the Victorian Road Safety Road Rules 2017. We make sure to reference the exact rule where possible. When reading, keep in mind that we’re providing general information, not legal advice. If you’re looking for specific questions on any legal matter, consult with a lawyer for help.
