Fix L plates

Does anyone have any clever ways or suggestions to fix an L plate?

I'm thinking about making a plate that attaches to the reflector bolt but I'd appreciate any help, tips, templates?

Ahahaha

Learner plate for those in Australia.


Ryan, I only just got my P's.

I have number plate surround that screws to the License Plate.
I put the L/P plate centered directly above the rear reflector and under the License plate.
The top of the L/P Plate does get hidden a bit but that is OK.
I was able to use the Lower Left Screw of the Lic Frame to hold the L/P Plate on.
The Screw sit perfectly in the punched hole of the L/P Plate.

I did have my L's sitting to the side of the License Plate but anything over the ton it shatters.
Where I have it now it is very secure and will not explode if you do happen to get over 120k on the track

Ended up making a metal plate to attach the L plate to. That hangs off the reflector bolt. Seems to do the job

In NSW Australia,

Learner Speed limits were raised at end of 2013.
Many Learners still do not know and are still going 80km/hr max

L = Learners = 90 km/hr
P1 = Red Provisional = 90 km/hr
P2 = Green Provisional = 100 km/hr

L = 12 moths
P1 = 12 months
P2 = 24 months
4 years before unrestricted license and bike

If you are over 25 years:
L = min 3months then can go for P1
P1 = 12 months then straight onto Unrestricted
min learning period for over 25 is then 15 months before zoom zoom

While on L or P1/P2 you must ride a LAMS restricted Motorbike + 0.00 blood alcohol even if you have a Full Drivers License.

And then there is America...

On a Thurs. night my friend talked me into taking the MSF class that weekend. So we signed up that night. The next day I drove to DMV to take my permit test. Passed the test, and was issued a temporary permit.
MSF class started the next morning at 8am. By 4pm on Sunday I had passed the coarse, and was issued the papers for a license. Monday morning I returned to DMV with my papers and was issued a full unrestricted license.

Even though I'm having to go through the LAMS hoops here in Aus, I'm far happier that the system is in place.

Too much carnage on the road already, being able to get a full license in 5 minutes would just add to that IMO
