  • Pass a knowledge test and meet the vision and medical standards.
  • Successfully complete an approved motorcycle training course.
  • Complete the Learner Stage (minimum 9 months).
  • Pass a road test.
  • Complete the Intermediate Stage (minimum 15 months).

Knowledge test

About the test

A knowledge test on the safe operation of a motorcycle is required to obtain a Class 6 (Motorcycle) licence. To prepare for your test, review the Motorcycle Handbook.

This is not an open book test and it is administered using a computer. Cell phones and other electronic devices are not allowed in the test area. Only one knowledge test is allowed per day.


All knowledge tests are conducted in English or French. Specify your language preference when booking your appointment.


A knowledge test costs $10.

Next steps

If you are in the Graduated Driver Licensing (GDL) program, there is a seven-day waiting period to retake the knowledge test if you are unsuccessful.

If you are outside of GDL, you are eligible to repeat a knowledge test the next working day.

Once you have passed the knowledge test, you will be issued a Class 6M (Motorcycle Training Course) licence that will allow you take a motorcycle training course only. Learn more about this stage.

Motorcycle training course

Prior to obtaining a Motorcycle Learner Licence, first-time motorcycle applicants must complete an approved motorcycle training course.

A motorcycle training course is an approved one-day practical course that will provide you with the basic skills required to operate a motorcycle. It is a user-pay course offered at designated locations throughout the province. Contact your nearest Autopac agent or MPI for more information on the recognized motorcycle training courses available.

Next steps

Once you have passed a Motorcycle Training Course, you will be issued a Class 6L (Learner) licence. Time spent in the M stage does not count toward the nine-month Learner stage. Learn more about this stage.

Road test

About the test

The road test not only measures your ability to operate a motorcycle, it also identifies errors that need to be corrected. There are two steps in this process:

  1. Identify all motorcycle controls, describe their functions and demonstrate their use.
  2. Operate your motorcycle in typical traffic situations in a safe and legal manner.

You must supply a motorcycle in good working order and produce a Vehicle Registration Certificate confirming the vehicle is properly registered and insured. Failure to do so will result in cancellation of the road test with your fees not being refunded.

To prepare for your road test, review the Motorcycle Handbook.


All road tests are conducted in English or French. Specify your language preference when booking your appointment.


A road test costs $30.

Next steps

Once you have passed the road test, you will be issued a Class 6I (Intermediate) licence. Learn more about this stage and the steps to obtaining a Full (F) Stage licence.

If you fail the road test, there is a 14-day waiting period to retake it.

How to book


The motorcycle testing season runs from May 1 to Oct. 30. However, if weather conditions permit, road tests may be scheduled sooner or later.

You can schedule your test appointment up to eight weeks in advance. All applicants are subject to a nine-month learning period before they are eligible to take a motorcycle road test.

All knowledge and road tests are by appointment only. Visit an Autopac agent or use our website to pay for your test and schedule your test appointment.

Minors require parental consent, provided at an Autopac agent or MPI Service Centre, to purchase services online. They are not eligible to book Class 6 knowledges tests online, but can book the subsequent road test.

Both knowledge and road tests are conducted during weekdays only (with the exception of holidays).

Your Autopac agent can provide you with details of available appointments at any testing location. See Mobile Test Unit locations and schedules for customers outside of Winnipeg.

Please note: You will need to give written consent for another individual, including a parent or legal guardian, to purchase and book a road test on your behalf. This requirement is dictated by The Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (FIPPA) which prohibits us from releasing any information about another customer without their written consent.

Rescheduling or cancelling your appointment

If you need to cancel or reschedule your appointment, you must notify your Autopac agent or change your appointment online at least 24 hours in advance. Otherwise, you will forfeit the service and any applicable fees.
