Getting a Nunavut Motorcycle Learners License

Nunavut does not yet have an official motorcycle graduated driver licensing program, primarily because many in the Nunavut territory prefer to use other mode's of transport in the very cold climate. However, there is the option for interested Nunavut residents to get a motorcycle license if they desire. You can start the process by mastering Nunavut road signs and road rules to pass your Class 6 learners written test. Click the tabs for more.
