Getting your motorcycle licence
New residents from Australia, Canada, Northern Ireland, Switzerland and the United States

If you are a licensed motorcycle driver (of motorcycles other than limited-speed motorcycles or motor tricycles) with two or more years of driving experience in the last three years in another Canadian province or territory, Australia, Northern Ireland, Switzerland or the United States, you may get full-class M licence privileges without taking a knowledge or road test.

If you are a licensed limited- speed motorcycle, or moped, driver from Saskatchewan, New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island or Quebec, you are eligible for a full-class M(L) licence without taking a knowledge or road test.

In either case, you must meet all medical requirements, including a vision test, and show acceptable proof of your previous licence status and driving experience. If you have less than two years of driving experience in the last three years, you may get credit for your experience and enter Level Two of the graduated licensing system. Once you have a total of two years driving experience, you may take the Level Two road test to earn full driving privileges.
