Riding on the footpath
This is only allowed when moving your motorbike from a parking spot to the road and by the shortest route possible.
For more information see rule 197 of the Victorian Road Safety Road Rules 2017.
Parking your motorcycle on the footpath is legal in Victoria, unless specifically prohibited by signs at a location, and as long as they don’t inconvenience, obstruct, hinder or prevent the free passage of any pedestrian or other vehicle.
See rule 197 of the Victorian Road Safety Road Rules 2017.
To help motorcyclists comply with this road rule, the Victorian Motorcycle Advisory Council (the State Government’s peak advisory body on motorcycle matters and policy) has prepared some simple guidelines. These apply throughout Victoria.
