3 Steps to Your Motorcycle License…
1. Knowledge Test
The first step towards getting your motorcycle license is to pass the knowledge test. Start by reading the eBooks above. The knowledge test includes general driving questions, plus questions about signs, lines and rules of the road. It also includes motorcycle specific questions. There is no online practice test, and unofficial practice motorcycle knowledge tests that you might find online from other jurisdictions are no substitute for reading the ICBC learn to ride book.

2. ICBC Motorcycle Skills Test (MST)
The second step is to pass the skills test on the motorcycle. This can be done, at no cost, by booking an appointment at an ICBC testing location such as the Burnaby ICBC at 3880 Lougheed Highway (not all ICBC locations offer motorcycle testing).
Even experienced riders can fail the test. Click the button below to book motorcycle lessons with an expert riding instructor in Vancouver or Burnaby. Don’t have a bike for the test? Use one of ours! If you book lessons with Urban Rider, we can also look after booking your motorcycle skills test for you.

3. ICBC Motorcycle Road Test
The class 6 motorcycle road test is the final and most challenging step. Your ICBC examiner is looking for you to demonstrate your ability to follow the rules of the road and navigate your motorcycle safely in traffic. Good riding habits are important. We offer motorcycle road test lessons, as well as mock road tests to help you prepare, and bike rentals (for students only) for your ICBC road test. We will even give you a video of your mock test, with commentary throughout, so that you can watch it at home and then work on correcting your habits before your test.
