Getting Your Class 6 NWT Motorcycle License

The final motorcycle licensing stage in the Northwest Territories MGDL program is the full Class 6 NWT motorcycle license, which you can get after completing all of the requirements at the NT Class 6 motorcycle probationary GDL stage. Obtaining a NWT motorcycle license means you can finally drive without restrictions or supervision. Obviously, you must always follow the road signs and road rules (refresh your motorcycle driving knowledge here), and you must have the proper documentation for the motorbike being driven, as well as the appropriate NWT motorcycle insurance for your motor cycle.
