Nothing replaces the experience of learning to ride in a controlled environment with a trained coach. It is the best thing to do to ensure your safety and enhance your riding abilities. In fact, in some provinces it is mandatory.
Training might also save you money on insurance costs.
You can also take advantage of specialized motorcycle training schools. These schools offer intermediate or advanced training, or training for particular types of riding (dirt riding, track riding). Check our training school links for more information.
To get your licence, you will also need testing. In most provinces the Licence Office, Department of Motor Vehicles or Ministry of Transportation will offer in-house testing. Don’t confuse testing with training. Each province and territory has different requirements for licensing, and different restrictions according to your stage of licensing.
