To operate a motorcycle, you must hold a driver's licence that corresponds to one of the following classes, based on the cylinder capacity of the motorcycle you wish to drive:
Electric motorcycles are considered to be 125 cc motorcycles. Please read the compliance label in accordance with Canadian motor vehicle safety regulations to find out which type of vehicle you have. Your vehicle could be an electric moped or scooter.
These licences also authorize the holder to drive a moped or scooter (Class 6D) and a farm tractor (Class 8).
On January 1, 2012, a new class of licence, Class 6E, was introduced. It authorizes its holder to drive a three-wheeled motorcycle. This class is included in the other motorcycle licence clases (6A, 6B and 6C). For more information on this new class of licence, click on the heading entitled Three-Wheeled Motorcycles (Class 6E).
Read the brochure entitled Prospective Motorcycle Operator for the procedure to follow to obtain these classes of driver's licence.
