The PEI Motorcycle Stage 3 License

Once you've passed through the PEI Motorcycle Learner and PEI Motorcycle Stage 2 of the PEI MGDL program, you become eligible for the PEI Motorcycle Stage 3 License. There is no written or practical testing required to get this license, however, you do need to drive your motorbike safely within the restrictions of a Stage 2 license for 1 year before you become eligible for a PEI motorcycle Stage 3 license. This is the last stage before one can qualify for a full, unrestricted, Class 6 PEI motorcycle license.
