The closed track road test may take place under light rain. You must plan the necessary equipment and wear adequate clothing to avoid postponing your test.
Please see the “Weather conditions” section below for more details.
Once you have completed the training, you may take the closed track test to obtain a Class 6A learner’s licence.
The Class 6A learner’s licence authorizes you to operate a motorcycle on the road. You must hold this licence for at least 11 months, during which time you must respect the curfew prohibiting you from driving a motorcycle between midnight and 5 a.m.
Before taking the closed track road test
have held a Class 6R licence for at least one month
We do not provide you with a motorcycle for the test. You must report to the test with a registered 2-wheel motorcycle that is equipped with a manual transmission and is in good mechanical condition.
If you rent a motorcycle, we only accept motorcycles with a cylinder capacity of more than 400 cc.
If you are the owner of the motorcycle, a lower cylinder capacity will be accepted.
We do not accept:
off-road motorcycles, such as trail bikes
motorcycles with a side-car
3- or 4-wheel motorcycles
motorcycles equipped with an automatic transmission
If you are using an electric motorcycle, it must be equipped with a manual transmission. You may not use an electric motorcycle with an automatic transmission to take your road test.
Motorcycles designed for road use or dual sports motorcycles that are registered for off-road use are accepted.
In order to be able to take your road test:
Your motorcycle must be in good mechanical condition. We will be inspecting the presence, state, and functionality of the following components:
at least one white headlight at the front and on the vertical centreline
red brake lights at the rear
securely attached rearview mirrors on each side
securely attached footrests
securely attached fenders
securely attached chain guard
front and rear brakes
tires designed to be used on the road network and free from bulges and cuts and rips that expose the cord
Note: The driving surface of the tires must not be smooth. The tires must be inflated sufficiently and not be so worn that the wear indicator touches the road.
If your motorcycle is not in good mechanical condition, you will not be able to take the road test.
No components of the motorcycle may be held in place with bonding material, such as adhesive tape or a rope.
Your motorcycle must be equipped with a gas tank with an airtight filler cap that contains enough fuel to allow you to complete the road test (the warning light must not be on).
Your motorcycle must have a seat that is not at risk of moving or becoming detached when travelling.
Your motorcycle must not have any sharp edges that could injure someone or any leakages (oil, gas, coolant).
Your motorcycle must bear a lit licence plate that is free of any object.
Before purchasing your first motorcycle, you need to consider several factors, as each type of motorcycle has both advantages and disadvantages. Our Buyer’s Guide can help you make an informed decision.
