Regardless of whether you are an experienced Nova Scotia passenger vehicle driver or a new driver with no driving experience at all, you will be required to fulfill the requirements of the Nova Scotia motorcycle graduated driver licensing process before you can acquire a full, unrestricted Nova Scotia Class 6 motorcycle driving license. The first step in the process is to get a NS motorcycle learner's license. However, there are some key differences between the expectations of a new vs. experienced driver which we outline below.
Class 7 Learner License + Motorcycle Rules Testing + Balance Test → Class LM License/Class 5 LM
If you are a new motor bike driver, your first Nova Scotia motorcycle licence will be the NS motorcycle learner's license or Class 6 LM learner license. Experienced drivers who already hold a valid, full NS Class 5 car drivers licence must commit to the same process, but will receive an LM endorsement on their existing Class 5 licence at the end of the program. Don't forget, driving a motor cycle comes with a lot of responsibility to always drive in a way that is safe for all users of the roads. You must also have adequate NS motorcycle insurance in case the unthinkable should happen, along with the appropriate documentation for your motorbike. In the tabs below, the team at ICanDrive.ca has compiled the information necessary for both a new and experienced drivers to get a NS motorcycle learner's license in the shortest time possible.
