NL Motorcycle Novice Driver License - Class 6 Level II

Step 2 in the NL Graduated Motorcycle Licensing process is the Class 6 Level 2 NL motorcycle novice driver license, which involves developing strong on-road motorcycle driving skills that are focused on proper driving techniques and maintaining safety for other road users. The Class 6 road test will determine if you've done a good job of learning how to drive a motorcycle in Newfoundland and Labrador. New bike riders must practice their motorcycle riding skills extensively before attempting the NL Class 6 road test.

Becoming a Confident Newfoundland Motorcycle Rider

While at the NL motorcycle learners license or Class 6 Level 1 stage, you were expected to demonstrate your knowledge of Newfoundland road signs and rules of the road on a written exam. For the Class 6 Level II NL motorcycle novice driver license, you have to demonstrate on-road application of those road signs/rules as well as driving skills. Remember, you must always carry the appropriate motorcycle insurance Newfoundland requires, and also have all of the appropriate documentation for your motorbike. Read through the below tabs to understand all the requirements and skills you need to develop, in order to successfully get your NL motorcycle novice driver license.

6 I For 12 Months

You need to have held a NL Class 6 Level 1 motorcycle licence continuously for 12 months, or 8 months if you took an approved motorcycle training course, before you can apply for the Class 6 Level 2 NL motorcycle novice driver license.

Book Your Class 6 Road Test

You have to take the Class 6 road test by appointment only, so make sure you book when you feel comfortable attempting the on-road test.

Read Through The NL Road Users Guide

In addition to brushing up on your knowledge of Newfoundland & Labrador road signs and rules (which you can do with our Class 6 practice test and Newfoundland permit test practice series), the Newfoundland road users guide also contains very useful information on riding maneuvers, correct balance techniques and many other skills you need to know in order to pass the Class 6 road test.


You should spend the time you have at the Class 6 Level 1 stage to practice your motorcycle driving skills and become truly confident in your motorcycle handling abilities.

Pre-trip Check

In order to pass the pre-test check, make sure you examine your motorcycle before leaving home and confirm that all the major controls (lights, signals, brakes, horn etc.) are working.

Motorcycle Road Test

During the road test, the examining driver will be in a vehicle behind you and communicate via a radio. Stay calm and focused, and follow the instructions given with confidence. Remember the examiners are not trying to trick you but just want to assess your level of confidence and skill in a real world motorcycle driving environment.

Post-test Debrief

Once the test is over, you will return to the examination center and be told if you passed or failed as well as comments for improvement.

Here are some tips on how to make your Newfoundland Labrador Class 6 road test day as stress free as possible:
