Similar to the SK graduated car driver licensing program, the Saskatchewan graduated motorcycle license program or MGDL, is structured to help new and already experienced passenger vehicle drivers know everything there is to know about operating a motorcycle safely in Saskatchewan. The Saskatchewan graduated motorcycle license program helps keep all users of the public roads safer and follows a detailed 3 step process. The SK MGDL program uses a combination of knowledge tests, on road driving exercises and continuing practice of good driving habits to help everyone who uses the roads to feel more confident and safe.
Use our step by step approach at each stage of the Saskatchewan graduated motorcycle license program to get your SK motorcycle license in the shortest time and the easiest way possible.

In order to get your motorcycle learners licence in Saskatchewan, you need to pass a basic knowledge exam, a signs exam and a motorcycle knowledge exam. In addition to the Saskatchewan written motorcycle tests, you will also have to either enroll in an SGI-approved driver training course or complete a basic ability road test (BART) to demonstrate good on-road motorcycle handling skills. Our series of free SGI written test practice and Saskatchewan motorcycle practice test sets can be a great help to test your driving knowledge before the actual tests.
