Alberta Motorcycle Driver License - Alberta License Process, License Office and Driving License Renewal resources

In order to get a motorcycle license in Alberta, you must either already hold a Class 5 license or get a Class 7 learner's permit first. You can then move through the graduated motorcycle licensing system to earn your full motorcycle license. This requires a few tests of your riding ability.

1. Pass the Written Knowledge Test

If you don't already hold a Class 5 license, you will need to pass the Class 7 learner's written knowledge test before you can apply for a motorcycle license. This will quiz you on the Alberta rules of the road and road signs to ensure you understand them. You can prepare for this test using icandrive.ca's set of practice tests, which mimic the real test and help you pass on the first attempt.

2. Take a Motorcycle Safety Course

A motorcycle safety course is an essential part of earning your motorcycle license in Alberta. It will help you to develop the skills on the road that you need in order to pass your road test and become a good, safe rider. Icandrive.ca can help you to locate a riding school near you.

3. Take the Motorcycle Knowledge Test and First Road Test

Once you have a Class 7 or Class 5 license, you can obtain the probationary Class 6 motorcycle license by passing both a written test of your knowledge of motorcycle rules of the road and a road test to prove your skill. You can set up your tests at any Service Alberta testing location. Once you pass both tests, you can ride with certain restrictions on your Class 6 probationary license.

4. Take the Advanced Road Test

In order to obtain your full motorcycle license, you will need to pass an advanced road test. You can take this test after you have held a probationary Class 6 license for at least 20 months. Once you pass the test, you can ride without restrictions.
