Getting Your Class 6 Nunavut Motorcycle License

Your Full Class 6 Motorcycle License

While Nunavut does not yet have a formal Nunavut motorcycle GDL program, the intention is that all Class 6 Nunavut motorcycle license holders will be able to confidently and capably ride a motorcycle in most reasonable road or weather situations. You need to become very familiar with Nunavut driving rules, laws and road signs (you can always refresh your motorcycle driving knowledge with our free tutorials here for Class 7 and here for Class 6). You must also thoroughly practice your motor bike driving skills in order to qualify for a NU motorcycle drivers license. The process ensures that new bike drivers can safely manage the operation of a motorcycle. Driving a motor cycle is a big responsibility, and includes carrying sufficient Nunavut motorcycle insurance, as well as maintaining the appropriate documentation for your bike.

Learner Licence Holder

You have to have held a Class 6 learner licence for at least 1 month before you can attempt the Class 6 road test.

Book Your Class 6 Road Test

You need to book your road test in advance with a Nunavut driver licensing office. Typically, road test appointments can only be booked during the months of July, August and early September.

Practice Motorcycle Riding

Make sure you thoroughly practice how to safely drive a motorcycle. You need to be able to identify all the major controls and exhibit strong riding capability.

Class 6 Road Test

The Class 6 road test will require you to drive through a set route and demonstrate both balance and motorcycle handling skills. The examining driver will follow you on another motorcycle or in another vehicle and communicate with you via a radio. Make sure you listen carefully to all instructions and calmly drive through the required route.

Arrive on Time

Make sure you're not late for your road test appointment. You could be denied your road test and asked to re-book if you are late.

Working Motorcycle

You have to bring a motorcycle to the test, and it has to be in good enough condition to safely take the test. If your motorcycle is deemed to not meet safety requirements, your test will be refused.

Identity Documents

You must bring along at least 2 pieces of government issued identification.
