In order to get through the motorcycle graduated driver licensing program in Quebec, you need to take a final motorcycle road test to get the Class 6A, 6B or 6C motorcycle license Quebec makes available. The type of motorcycle you bring to the test will determine what kind of motorcycle license Quebec will issue. In addition, new drivers are issued a probationary license, while experienced drivers who already hold a full QC Class 5 passenger vehicle licence are able to get a full Class 6A, 6B or 6C license as soon as they pass the final SAAQ motorcycle test. The important thing to remember is that all the skills you learned at the first Quebec motorcycle learners license level and the second Class 6A learner license levels are still applicable, and should be applied whenever you are driving a motorcycle in Quebec.
Class 6A + Safe Riding (11 months) + Road Test → Class 6A, 6B or 6C probationary licence
Class 6A, 6B or 6C Probationary Licence + 24 months → Class 6A, 6B or 6C Full
Prior Class 5 Licence holder + Class 6 A Leaner Licence + Safe Riding (11 months) + Road Test → Class 6A, 6B or 6C FULL licence

You must also refrain from consuming any alcohol when operating a motorcycle in Quebec.
