Found nothing about the use of Light for Scooter/Motor bikes, but di find this about Fog/Driving lights. Have only heard of 1 driver I know being fined.
Using your vehicle lights incorrectly can make it difficult for other drivers to see. Incorrect use of fog or driving lights can result in a fine and loss of points from your licence.
In addition to fog and driving lamps, daytime running lights are becoming increasingly popular on new vehicles and have started to cause some confusion for motorists. This webpage explains the differences between these lights and Victoria’s regulations surrounding their use.
Using fog lights
Front fog lights are designed to better illuminate the road in fog, snowfall, rainstorms or dust clouds. They can be recognised by the low, narrow pattern of light emitted.
Road Rule 217 states that drivers must not use front or rear fog lights unless driving in fog or other hazardous weather conditions that cause reduced visibility.
Fog lights cannot be accidentally switched on. They must be switched on separate from the main beam (high beam) and dipped beam (passing) headlights.
Fog lights should only be used in hazardous weather conditions.
Using driving lights
Driving lights are designed to illuminate the road over a long distance for example country areas. They are used to supplement the main beam (high beam) head light and emit the same lighting pattern.
Road Rule 218 states that drivers must not use the high beam headlights when driving:
•less than 200 metres behind a vehicle travelling in the same direction
•less than 200 metres from an oncoming vehicle.
Driving lights cannot be accidentally switched on. They can only be switched on with the high beam head lights.
