Your score is



First, to take the M1 test, you must be at least 16, pass an eye exam, and demonstrate your knowledge of the road. But before you walk—or should we say, ride—into a DriveTest location, you must book your test slot. Visit the official Ontario website, pick a convenient time, and pay the fee. Once booked, it’s time to study.

Your M1 test evaluates your understanding of:

  • Traffic flow and road signs
  • Safe and courteous riding practices
  • Motorcycle handling

Have no fear; you can find many resources online, including official driver’s handbooks and practice exams. Invest time in your readings and quiz yourself to ensure you’ve got the gears in your head primed for action.
