Limited-speed motorcycle (LSM) and moped drivers
 
All moped drivers will have to hold a Class M licence or the new restricted Class M licence to operate their moped. You can no longer operate a moped holding any driver's licence. You need to pass a written test, you will need to complete both the M1 and M2 road tests and, if successful, you will receive a driver's licence that allows you to operate a limited-speed motorcycle (motor scooter) and moped only.
If you own a moped that had a validated plate between November 27, 2002 and November 28, 2005, and held a valid driver’s licence at the same time you will be "grandfathered". This means you will automatically receive the new M licence with L condition. No new testing will be required.
M1 Licence
The holder of an M1 licence will be able to operate a limited-speed motorcycle, moped or full-speed motorcycle. At the time of booking your M1 road test, you must decide which type of vehicle you will use on the day of your road test, as it will determine which licence you get. The M1 licence must be held at least 60 days before you are eligible to attempt the M1 road test. The M1 licence will be valid for 90 days. M1 holders cannot drink alcohol, drive at night, carry passengers or drive on controlled-access highways.
Restricted M2 licence with L condition
The holder of an M1 licence who successfully completes their M1 road test on a limited-speed motorcycle or moped will receive a restricted M2 licence. The holder of a restricted M2 licence will be able to operate a limited-speed motorcycle or moped only. The restricted M2 licence must be held for 22 months (18 months if taking a ministry approved motorcycle safety course) before taking your M2 road test. Holders of a restricted M2 licence cannot drive on controlled-access highways (e.g., 400 series highways, the Queen Elizabeth Way, the Queensway in Ottawa and the Kitchener-Waterloo Expressway). Holders of a restricted M2 licence cannot drink alcohol and moped operators cannot carry passengers. (limited-speed motorcycle drivers may carry passengers at this stage but it is not recommended).
Restricted M licence with L condition
The holder of an M2 licence who successfully completes their M2 road test on a limited-speed motorcycle or moped will receive a restricted M licence. The holder of a restricted M licence will be able to operate a limited-speed motorcycle or moped only. Holders of a restricted M licence cannot drive on controlled-access highways (e.g., 400 series highways, the Queen Elizabeth Way, the Queensway in Ottawa and the Kitchener-Waterloo Expressway). Moped operators cannot carry passengers.
