Getting your motorcycle licence
While at Level One

With an M1 licence, you may drive a motorcycle, motor tricycle, a limited-speed motorcycle or a moped, under the following conditions:

  • You must not drive if you have been drinking alcohol. Your blood-alcohol level must be zero.
  • You must drive only during daylight hours — one-half hour before sunrise to one-half hour after sunset.
  • You must not drive on roads with speed limits of more than 80 km/h, except highways 11, 17, 61, 69, 71, 101, 102, 144 and 655. (These exceptions are made because some drivers have no other route available to them.)
  • You must not carry passengers.
