Why do motorcycle learners and P1 riders continue to have the maximum speed of 80km/h?

Motorcycle learners and P1 motorcycle riders are not permitted to travel at the increased speed limits.  This is because the State Government wants to ensure motorcycle learners have sufficient time to develop the higher riding skills, such as spare attention and hazard perception which are required to safely ride at the faster speeds, when permitted to do so.
