Quote from: Busn00b on June 27, 2011, 01:29:07 PMCorrect Zac. Hold your P's for 12 months and you are then able to do your LR/MR/HR computer test then logbook lessons then get your licence. So at minimum you can get an MR at age 18 and 19 for HR i think. However your are still provisional, it just means you can drive a larger vehicle, whilst still adhearing to your P plate restrictions.As far as your authority card goes you need (here is the funny bit) be at least 20 and have held a full unrestricted licence for 1 year. Which as most of you will realise is not actually possible and I sent in several complaints to them trying to explain this to them and i was told that was 'for people from new zealand' which is quite obviously a load of shit and they had no idea how to explain someone can possibly be 20 and have held a full licence for 12 months when you have to hold P's for three years. I also complained to them because my ACT P plate licence as printed by the ACT Motory Registry says Provisional - Licence type - unrestricted. But according to NSW they are restricted even though I have a legal document saying UNRESTRICTED, they would not budge and said that unrestricted to them means a YELLOW or FULL licence. So basically they have no idea what they are talking about, but good luck if you want to challenge that silly department, cause they have no idea what they are doing.But I hope all that info helps, so basically, if you want the EARLIEST date, then get your P's as soon as you turn 17 and you can get your authority the day you turn 21

Quote from: Busn00b on June 30, 2011, 06:29:19 PMAhh thanks for that explanation Chris, that makes more sense now than the obvious bullshit that woman told me. Having a condition in there for 'people from new zealand' was obviously a lie since they would probably have to have a different sort of application anyway.

Quote from: Bus 400 on August 17, 2011, 10:00:02 PMI'm sure most of us have been past the Barton Terminus over the years, well not long after the school holidays finished work started on the median strip of National Circuit. I am unsure what the final plan is, but at the moment holes have been dug around all the cement islands on said road. This now makes it difficult for standard size buses to make the right turn from National Circuit to Sydney Avenue (Woden bound). To make this turn, I have seen buses come right over to the far left of the lane & make a sharp turn to the right.
Quote from: Merv319 on September 15, 2011, 11:32:27 AMI saw Bus 301 this mornig at Gungahlin Marketplace, WITHOUT ITS RACK...I'm so sorry I didn't take photos, but I'm 100% sure it didn't have the rack.
Quote from: ACTbusspotter on September 15, 2011, 11:49:28 AMYou are 100% correct. Metrobus has reported the same via twitter.Most likely it has returned from interstate and they haven't had a chance to fit a bike rack before it entered service. 311 did a similar thing - but they fitted a DL2 before it went back on the road.
