Use our test day checklist to be in the right mindset for your motorcycle Class 6 learners knowledge test:

Get A Good Nights Sleep

Make sure you get at least 8 hours of sleep the night before. Don't try to memorize all the Yukon road signs and rules the day before either - studying over several days is best.

Arrive Early

Arriving at least an hour in advance of closing time will allow you enough time to be relaxed and properly complete both the knowledge test and vision test required for the Yukon motorcycle learners license.

Documents To Bring

Compile the required documents the night before, so you have them ready for your Class 6 knowledge test day.

Identity Documents - Bring documentation to show:

  • Photograph
  • Full, current legal name
  • Date of birth
  • Signature

Residency Documents -  In addition to proving your identity, you also need to provide proof of Yukon residency to the Yukon Motor Vehicles Office. Documents that qualify as proof of residency and show your current address would be:

  • Legal agreements/Mortgage papers
  • Bank statements/credit card bill statement
  • A letter from a Yukon employer
  • A utility bill

Consent Documents - Proof of Yukon residency and consent must be provided by the parent/guardian if the licence applicant is under the age of 18.

Applicable Fees

Test Re-takes

If you are unsuccessful on the first attempt, you can repay the test fee and retake the Class 6 motorcycle learners test another day.

Min Licence Holding Period

You must remain at the Class 6 learner stage until at minimum, you've reached the age of 16 and held a Class 6 learner license for a continuous six months. After this time, you can begin the process to get your Yukon Class 6 Novice licence.

Practice Riding

As a Yukon motorcycle learner driver, you must complete the mandatory minimum 30 hours of practice driving with a qualified co-driver. You will be required to sign a declaration confirming the 30 hours have been completed and your co-driver/supervising driver will also need to sign the declaration.

Display Your L Sign

All Yukon motorcycle learners must display an 'L' sign when operating a motorcycle.

Supervised Driving

You must drive your motorcycle at the Class 6 learner stage with a supervising/co-rider. The supervising co-driver can be seated behind the learner, however it's recommended that the co-driver follow in or on another vehicle. The co-driver must be fully licensed and maintain a BAC (blood alcohol concentration) level of zero when supervising.

No Alcohol

The learner riders BAC level must also be zero when operating a motorcycle.

Passenger Limit

You are not allowed to carry any passengers except for the co-driver at this stage. It is recommended that the co-driver also supervise from another vehicle since carrying a passenger can interfere with a learners ability to properly balance and maneuver a motorcycle.

Restricted Night time Driving

6L or learner drivers cannot drive a motorcycle between the hours of midnight and 5 am.

No Electronic Devices

The use of handheld devices when operating a motorcycle is illegal.
