M1 Practice Test – Rules 1

When you take a motorcycle safety course, you will get a course certificate. If you bring this certificate to a DriveTest centre, within six months, you do not need to take the M1 road test – you move directly to the next level (M2). You also will be able to take the second road test sooner, after 18 months instead of the standard 22. Taking an approved training program may entitle you to an insurance discount.

Taking some time to properly prepare before you schedule that test will help you have the confidence you need. It also improves the chance of your score being high enough to pass. The M1 practice test options online give you an opportunity to see how well you would do with the real test.

Read the Information

M1 Practice TestOperating a motorcycle is exciting with the open air around you and the freedom it brings. Safety should be a top priority. Understanding the rules of the road and how they pertain to motorcycle use is important. It helps you operate the vehicle correctly, reduce the risk of accidents, and reduce the risk of getting any driving infractions from law enforcement.

Everything you need to know is in that material. Focus on what you read, don’t get distracted or skip any parts of it. The more you understand, the better you will do on the real M1 test!

What to Expect

Test anxiety is common, and the best way to reduce it is to be prepared for the test you plan to take. The mock M1 test is set up to reflect what the real test looks like. The questions you will be asked on the practice test and the real test can vary. There are hundreds of questions in the database and it isn’t possible to know which of them will come up on your est. They are randomly allocated.

The goal is to be prepared for the questions on the practice and real test so that it won’t matter which ones come up. Both the practice M1 test and the real test will have 40 multiple-choice questions. Carefully read the question and read each possible answer. Select the best possible answer from the given choices. Don’t select the first choice that sounds relevant as one of the remaining choices may be a better fit. Take your time on each question before you move to the next.

Practice Online

It is fast and easy to gain access to the M1 practice test online. Find a time when you are free from distractions to take the test. Do your best to answer each question. It is useful to take notes as you go through it. Sometimes, more than one answer will seem correct and it is hard to choose. You don’t want to guess on the real test. After you complete the practice exam, look up those sections in the handbook. This ensures you have the correct information if such questions show up on the real test.

When you practice online, you get a feel for the layout of the questions and the format they are asked in. You can see the types of possible right answers from the multiple-choice options. As you practice, you will relax and be able to concentrate. This will help you be in the best mindset for the real test.

Evaluate your Score

You will need to get at least 32 out of the 40 questions correct to pass the M1 motorcycle driving test in Ontario. Don’t worry if you don’t reach that goal of 80% or higher accuracy the first time you take the practice test. The first time you take it will share with you where you currently stand. If you cut it too close, it is worth it to go back through the handbook and closely review what you missed so you don’t get it wrong on the real test.

Review What You Got Wrong

Don’t be too hard on yourself if your score is low on the practice test. This provides information for you to learn from. It shares what information you know well and what you still need to review further before you take the actual test for motorcycle driving in Ontario. It is best to learn from the M1 test at home than to be upset because you didn’t pass it when you paid to take the real test.

Spend as much time as you need to review what you got wrong. Find the correct answer to those questions in the handbook. Review it and make sure you understand the information. A common mistake is to try to memorize the answers. Remember, the questions will vary on the real test. The questions may be similar but not always worded exactly the same. The same is true for the possible answers. You have to know the information to do well on the test!

Practice Test Again

When you feel you have spent enough time reviewing and learning information, take the practice M1 Test Ontario again. Your score should be better than it was the first time. Such improvement can boost your confidence. It also helps you to see what you gained by going back and studying the handbook for certain information. Take a look at your score the second time. Did you score high enough to do well on the real test?

If you didn’t score high enough or you are cutting it close to passing, don’t get discouraged. Repeat the above steps to help you continue to raise your score on the practice tests. There is no limit to how many times you can take a practice test. Don’t schedule your real test until you consistently get a score of 80% or higher during your practice sessions.

Schedule your Written Test with Confidence

When you reach that point, schedule your written test for the motorcycle driving test in Ontario, Canada. You can schedule it with confidence, knowing you have the information you need to do well on the test. You won’t be anxious when you show up to take the test.
