Getting your motorcycle licence
Visitors and new Ontario residents

If you are a visitor to Ontario and want to drive while you are here, you must be at least 16 years old and have a valid motorcycle licence from your own province, state or country.

If you are from another country and visiting Ontario for more than three months, you need an international driver’s permit from your own country.

If you do not have an international driver’s permit, you can apply for an Ontario licence.

If you are a new resident of Ontario and have a valid motorcycle licence from another province or country, you can use that licence for 60 days in Ontario. If you want to continue to drive after 60 days, you must get an Ontario motorcycle licence.
