The provincial government is continuing to look at adding power restrictions to graduated licensing for new motorcycle riders.
Consultation with stakeholders is underway as well as research to determine the best model to improve rider safety and reduce motorcycle crashes, a government spokesperson said.
The consultations will be completed by fall and the aim is to have a new model implemented by spring next year.
At the end of April, Justice Minister Shirley Bond said the government was looking to move forward with the proposal requiring new riders to stick to less powerful motorcycles for a period of time.
PG Learn to Ride instructor Angela O'Regan said the approach is now common in Europe and requires graduating through several levels to earn a licence for the most powerful bikes.
Young riders on so-called "crotch rockets" - the light sport bikes - getting themselves into trouble is a prime reason behind the proposal, O'Regan said.
"They're light, they're fast and they're powerful and there's a big difference between a bike that weighs 350 pounds and has 650 cc versus what I'm riding, which is almost 1800 cc but weighs 800 pounds and I'm much less likely to kill myself on that than I would on a 650," she said.
The idea drew opposing reactions from two Harley Davidson enthusiasts in town for a rally.
Chum Hutzkal of Langley said there are people like himself who've been on trikes and dirt bikes since he was three years old.
"If you've been riding your whole life as a kid and they want to stick you on a 250?" he said.
Marlene Williams of Kamloops expressed support provided it's done right.
"Some people are on way too powerful bikes," she said. "If you can prove you can ride a more powerful bike then [you should be allowed do to so]."
As of June 1, all motorcycle riders and their passengers have been required to wear helmets that meet safety industry standards.
It meant they are no longer able to wear novelty helmets, typically known as skid lids, skull caps or beanies, which do not meet the new requirements. As well, children whose legs are unable to reach foot pegs are no longer allowed to ride as passengers
