Which License is Required for Motorcycle in Ontario?


    In Ontario, a Class M license is required to legally ride a motorcycle. To obtain this license, individuals must be at least 16 years old, pass a vision test, a written knowledge test on traffic rules, and a motorcycle road test. For those under 18, a valid M1 license (learner’s permit) must be held for at least 60 days before taking the road test for the full M license. The M1 allows riding with certain restrictions, including no passengers, no riding on 400-series highways or high-speed expressways, and a zero blood alcohol level. It’s crucial to complete a government-approved training course, which can shorten the time required to hold an M1 and M license.
