Before you can get a motorcycle learner's licence, you need to pass a motorcycle knowledge test.
Note: If you don't have a driver's licence, you must also take a knowledge test for driving passenger vehicles.
The test has 40 multiple-choice questions.
It's usually taken on computer at a driver licensing office and takes about 30 minutes, though you may take longer.
The test is harder than you might think. To prepare, study Learn to Ride Smart. The questions in the test are based on this guide.
Just go to a driver licensing office and come in as early as you can to give yourself enough time to take the knowledge test.
Depending on customer demand on any given day, we may not be able to accommodate all knowledge test requests at the end of the day.

Your parent or a legal guardian must give consent for your application if you're under 19.
When you come in for your test, we ask about your medical condition and check your vision. For details, see Chapter 11 of Learn to Ride Smart.
After passing and meeting all other requirements, you get a Class 6L motorcycle learner's licence (or, if you're also in the "L" or "N" stage of graduated licensing for passenger vehicles, a Class 8L licence).
Now you can practice for the motorcycle skills test.
Note: If you don't pass the road test, you can come back another day, pay the $15 fee and take the test again.
