He was treated by a passing German paramedic and two Melbourne trauma surgeons who happened to be travelling through the area at the time of accident.

Police say he is really lucky not to have been seriously hurt, despite suffering significant grazing to his arms, legs and ankles, when he was dragged along the bitumen by the bike.

Ambulance Victoria has advised he's been taken to Apollo Bay Hospital in a stable condition for further assessment.

Police say the learner only had his licence for two month.

High speed is being blamed for the incident.
