The First Step to Riding in Ontario

An M1 licence is valid for 90 days and is acquired by passing a multiple choice test available at a DriveTest Examination Centre. The questions are based on the Ministry of Transportation’s Motorcycle and Driver’s Handbooks. The M1 test is available without appointment.

Restrictions for M1 riders:

  • You must refrain from any alcohol and drug use
  • You may only ride during daylight hours (1/2 hour before sunrise to 1/2 hour after sunset)
  • No riding on highways with speed limits exceeding more than 80 km/h (with the exception of highways 11, 17, 61, 69, 71, 101, 102, 144, 655, where there is no alternate 80 km/h route).
  • No passengers

You can take your M2 Course with RTI as soon as you get your M1 – you don’t need to wait 60 days!
