Which License is Required for Motorcycle in Ontario?


    In Ontario, Canada, to legally operate a motorcycle on public roads, you need an M1 or M2 license. The process starts with obtaining an M1 license by passing a written test on rules of the road and traffic signs. With an M1, you can ride under certain restrictions such as no passengers, no riding after dark, and a zero blood alcohol level. After holding an M1 for at least 60 days, you can take a motorcycle safety course and then the M2 road test to get your M2 license. This allows more freedom, like carrying passengers and riding after dark, but with some limitations. Finally, after holding the M2 for at least 22 months, passing another road test will grant you a full M license without restrictions.
