Types of vehicles requiring a class M licence

There are four types of vehicles for which you require a motorcycle class of licence to drive on public roads in Ontario: motorcycles, motor tricycles, limited-speed motorcycles (LSMs) and motor-assisted bicycles (mopeds).

A restricted class M licence for motor tricycles has a condition that will allow licence holders to drive three-wheeled motorcycles only.

A restricted class M licence for limited-speed motorcycle and moped drivers was introduced on November 28, 2005. This new restricted class M licence has a condition that will allow licence holders to drive a limited-speed motorcycle and moped only.

You are no longer permitted to drive a moped with any driver’s licence other than a class M or a restricted class M.

Moped operation is now included in this handbook.
