Motorcycles Road Tests

In Ontario, getting a motorcycle driver’s licence is completely separate from obtaining a licence to drive any other vehicle. If you are looking to hit the open road on two wheels and experience the thrill of riding a motorcycle, you will need to go through the motorcycle road test process. This is where we assist you every step of the way.

Two Types Of Class M Road Tests

Ontario traffic law has introduced two types of Class M and Class M2 road tests with a graduated licensing program for motorcycles, scooters, and mopeds. Both tests allow professional driver examiners to evaluate your driving ability to apply the road rules, handle your motorcycle, and prove safe driving practices.

Class M2 Road Test

Class M2 road test evaluates basic driving skills and usually takes about 15 to 20 minutes. If you successfully pass the road test, you will be granted a Class M2 licence. You must have at least 60 days of Class M1 experience before taking your Class M2 road test.
When you complete an MTO-approved motorcycle safety course, the training organisation will electronically confirm the MTO.
The customer representative will notice this when you visit a test Centre for your Class M2 licence. All training organisations do not use this computerised approach; you may receive a paper referral envelope instead. You do not need to take a road test to gain your Class M2 if you bring this recommendation envelope to a test centre within six months.

Class G Road Test

The Class M road test evaluates more advanced driving skills and includes a highway route. It typically lasts 35 to 30 minutes. If you successfully clear the test, you will be issued a Class M licence.
You will be trailed by a driver and a driver examiner during this test. The driver examiner will give you test instructions using the earphones you will be given.
If you complete an MTO-approved motorcycle safety course, you can take your Class M road test in about 18 months (550 days) rather than 22 months.

Booking The Class M Road Test

When you have completed the mandatory waiting duration and have better skills than before, you can schedule a driving test. Motorcycle road tests for classes M2 and M are available from mid-May to mid-October each year. You can contact Book Driving Test to book your road test. Remember that if you hold a GM2 licence, the date on your licence card may represent the date of the other licence rather than the motorcycle licence.
To book, you must have a driver’s licence number and fees. You may also need to specify the type of bike you intend to use.

Preparing for Your Class M Road Test

You must follow the graded licencing programme to drive a motorbike. However, you do not require a Class M licence to take a motorcycle road test.
Driver education and safety training books are optional but highly recommended. Before taking any road test, read the Official MTO Driver and Motorcycle Handbook.
To prepare for the exam, you must practise the following abilities in a range of settings, times of day, and driving conditions:
  • Starting, stopping, and changing direction.
  • Traffic lights and signs.
  • Driving in the proper driving stance on the road.
  • Driving in passing lanes and vehicles, including bicycles.
  • Travelling through crossings that are both controlled and uncontrolled.
  • Reversing and parking.
  • Predicting and preparing for hazardous conditions.
  • Make plans for the car you will use on the day of the exam while you are preparing.
  • Make sure that it is in the appropriate class and that it is in good working order.
Remember that the drive test centres do not provide motorcycles. You can rent a motorcycle, moped, or scooter for the road test. However, it is your responsibility to arrange for insurance.

Scheduling And Arriving On Test Day

Some test centres conduct motorcycle exams at off-site testing facilities. When necessary, these sites are located within a few kilometres of a testing facility. Only at appointment times will a uniformed Driver Examiner meet you at the offsite location.
Bring the following items to the test:
  • The motorcycle must be in good condition.
  • Contact lenses or glasses Valid driver’s licence.
  • Hard copy of your test confirmation email.
  • Helmet
Before you begin, the driver examiner will provide instructions and headphones. The driver examiner may halt or refuse to begin the test if any of the following conditions are met:
  • Your bike needs to be in working condition.
  • If you are drunk.
  • Your driving skills need to improve to finish the test without risking safety.
  • You must wear either a full-face or third-quarter helmet to allow you to hear the driver examine the examiner’s instructions better.
  • Compared to the half-helmets, these larger helmets secure the earbuds better and reduce interfering noise.
While taking the test, the examiner will evaluate your skills according to set criteria and complete a form/scoresheet.

Following The Class M Road Test

After the Class M road test, the driver examiner will give you an entire skills report. Suppose you have successfully passed the road test. In that case, you will be provided with a temporary driver’s licence, valid for a maximum of 90 days or until your permanent driver’s licence photo card arrives at your address (if provided at the time of the test).
If you still need to pass the road test, the examiner will provide you with a report which highlights the lacking points where you need to improve. When you have had better practice, you can book another driving test through us. You can take several road tests until you pass with a test fee, provided your motorcycle driver’s licence is valid. You must wait at least three days between tests.
