Disability Discrimination Act
Goods, services and facilities
Revised terms and conditions
The complainant has paraplegia and sought to obtain a motorcycle licence. The complainant is unable to ride a two-wheeled motorcycle because of his disability and instead sought to ride a three-wheeled motorcycle modified to allow him to ride it. He alleged the respondent government agency informed him there was no valid path available for doing a test on a three wheeled motorcycle and he would first have to do a course on a two wheeled motorcycle.
On being informed of the complaint, the agency indicated a willingness to try to resolve the complaint by conciliation.
The complaint was resolved with an undertaking by the agency to create a licence testing pathway for those who wish to ride a three wheeled motorcycle.
