Graduated Licensing for Motorcycles Riders

New drivers applying for their first car or motorcycle licence must enter the Ontario graduated licensing system. This system is a 2-step process, which is usually completed over a 20-month time-span.

This is an optimal period of time to allow the new driver to acquire the skills and the necessary driving experiences that are very essential to becoming a confident and safe driver.

Level One (Class M1) requirements

Level One (Class M1) lasts a minimum of 60 days. It is valid for 90 days. Make sure to book Level One (Class M1) road test ahead to avoid a long delay.

Class M1

As new motorcycle riders with a Class M1 Licence you have to ride under following conditions:

  • Your blood alcohol level must be zero;
  • You must ride only during daylight hours (1/2 hour before sunrise to 1/2 hour after sunset);
  • You must not ride on highways with speed limits of more than 80 km/h except highways 11, 17, 61, 69, 71, 101, 102, 144, 655;
  • You cannot carry passengers.

Once you pass motorcycle knowledge test, you will get a Class M1 Licence and an information package for new riders. You must spend a minimum of 60 days with a Class M1 Licence, which is valid for 90 days.

Motorcycle riders who successfully complete an approved motorcycle safety course that includes a road test with an M1 Licence are exempt from taking the ministry's M1 road test and can move to an M2 Licence after 60 days.

If you complete an approved safety course in either level, you can reduce the time that you must hold an M2 Licence from 22 to 18 months. While the motorcycle safety course certificate is valid for two years from its issue date, it may only be used for the M1 road test exemption within six months of its issue date.
With a Class M1 Licence, an operator can drive a moped, limited-speed motorcycle and a motorcycle.

Class M2

You must pass an M1 road test or complete an approved motorcycle safety course before receiving a Class M2 Licence. You must have a Class M2 Licence for a minimum of 22 months.

If you complete an approved motorcycle safety course, you may reduce this time requirement by four months. With an M2 Licence, you gain more privileges - you may ride at night and on any road. However, at this level:

  • Your blood alcohol level must be zero;
  • You will be eligible to take a Class M road test after you have completed the time required with an Class M2  Licence;
  • You must pass this test to get a Class M Licenc

Note: Class M2 and Class M Licence holders may also drive Class G vehicles under the conditions that apply to a Class G1 Licence holder.
With a Class M2 Licence, the operator can drive a moped, limited-speed motorcycle and a motorcycle.
