Preparing for Written Motorcycle M1 Driving Test in Ontario
All aspiring Canadian motorists require a learner’s license to start working on obtaining a full motorcycle license. A learner’s license also called the M Class license, is obtained by sitting for a motorcycle knowledge exam called the M1 Driving Test.
Here we, take a detailed look at the test, what it involves, how to study for it to get your learner’s license.
What is a Driving Test?
Every person wishing to operate a motor vehicle of any kind must pass a driving test. It’s a test used to evaluate one’s ability to operate a motor vehicle. The driving test is usually in two parts, with the first part being a written knowledge test and the second being a practical behind-the-wheel test.
For aspiring Ontario Motorists, the written knowledge exam is called the M1 driving test. It is a multiple-choice question meant to evaluate your ability to operate a motorcycle.
Once you pass the M1 Driving Test, you can proceed to obtain a full motorcycle license so you can zoom the streets at desirable speeds, carry passengers, drive at night (though not a wise idea), and much more. A learner’s license gives you the permission to start practice-riding your way towards a full motorcycle license.
M1 Driving Test Exam Structure
The M1 Driving test consists of 40 questions which you can take in English, Arabic, Farsi, French, Spanish, Croatian, Cantonese. Punjabi, Mandarin, and Vietnamese. Cantonese and Mandarin are traditional Chinese writing styles.
You will be asked to answer questions on Ontario:
1. Traffic rules
Each province in Canada has unique traffic laws. You’ll need mastery of Ontario, Canada driving laws to answer questions. So, get a driving handbook from your local DMV office and go through the material carefully and thoroughly.
Example traffic rules for Ontario Motorists include:
· To carry a passenger, a motorist must have a large seat for both them and the passenger and must have separate footrests to ensure stability. They must also wear an approved helmet.
· Handlebars, Throttle, Shift Lever, Clutch Lever, Rear Brake, and Front Brake are must-haves controls for operating a bicycle in Ontario. A speedometer, on the other hand, is not.
· You must have headlights, taillights, a brightly colored helmet, a reflective jacket, and brightly colored clothes if you plan to ride at night.
You can familiarize yourself with these traffic rules by going through the local Ontario DMV handbook.
2. Road signs
Ontario has many different roads sign for different aspects of traffic control. For example, there is the Maximum 50km/h regulatory road sign, and sometimes it’s accompanied by a BEGINS tab sign; other times, it’s not. You will be asked what the signs mean. You will need mastery of the traffic signs to pass the exam.
Other road signs include:
- No right turn or straight-ahead sign
- No left turn or straight-ahead sign
- Fasten seat belt sign
- 407 Express Toll Route for vehicles over 5 tonnes sign
3. Road situations
A portion of the exam will also test your knowledge of various road situations and the best way to act if you find yourself in one. There’s always a lot going on the road; you may find yourself in a hazardous situation and need great perception and knowledge to recognize and react accordingly.
It’s A Multiple-Choice Exam
Each question has 4 very close answer choices, so you have to be good to pick the right one. That means you have to prepare for the exam if you want to get it right the first time. Of course, you can retake it if you fail it, but it is always good to ace it in your first attempt and avoid incurring extra expenses of a resit.
Even experienced drivers should study to avoid flopping the first time. Studying and taking practice tests increases one’s chances of acing the motorcycle knowledge test. Practice questions are essential for integrating acquired knowledge and reinforcing it. They also help determine progress and areas that need more studying.
Use your local Ontario DMV handbook and online learning resources to get better at taking driving tests. There are various resources online with exams that look just like the real thing. When it comes to the handbook, make sure to use the current version of the book so you remain up to date with the latest Ontario traffic rules.
You’ve Got to Score at Least 80 %
Out of the 40 questions, you must get at least 32 of them correct to get your learner’s license. This high score ensures only the best riders get licenses to reduce the risk of accidents.
What Will You Need to Sit for The Exam?
You will have to visit your local office for driving licenses to take the exam on exam day. While the practical exam can be taken anytime, the M1 written exam is administered on a schedule. You will need the following stuff:
- Test fee money
- Parent consent form for those under 19
- You will also need to pass a vision test
If you flop the first attempt, you can resit for the motorcycle knowledge test after a week.
What Does the Learner’s License Allow You to Do?
A learner’s license gives you the permission to start practice-riding, albeit with some restrictions.
- You must not exceed a 60km/h speed limit
- You must not carry any passengers
- You must always ride within the sight of a supervisor, and they must be of age 19 and above. If you hold a Class 8L learner’s license, your trained supervisor must be 15 years old and above and with a valid Class 6 full-privilege license.
- You may only ride between sunrise and sunset.
- Must always display an L sign if you are an 8L rider.
An Ontario motorist’s learner’s license is only valid for 90 days, so once you get it. Start working on a full motorcycle license soon. Otherwise, it’s a waste of time as you’ll have to retake the exam to apply for a road test.
