RMS Rider Training Scheme Overview

The NSW Roads & Traffic Authority, now Roads & Maritime Services (RMS), introduced the Compulsory Rider Training Scheme in 1990.  The program is available to approximately 95% of the population of NSW.

The Rider Training Scheme is sponsored by the NSW Government and is administered by the Roads and Maritime Services (RMS). The training is delivered by private Contractors.
WHEEL-SKILLS has been one of those Contractors since 1994 and are currently assigned the responsibility by the RMS to deliver training and testing in the following 7 areas:


Tuggerah Central Coast Region
Coffs Harbour Mid North Coast Region
Lismore Far North Coast Region
Tweed Heads Far North Coast Region
Tamworth North West Region
Armidale New England Region
Unanderra Illawarra Region

If you live outside the above areas we are most happy to attend to your rider training needs.
You may book into a course at any of the centres we operate - just nominate your preferred location when booking with the RMS.
