I am riding with a license. I got my license after completing a 3 day riding course given by TEAM Az motorcyclist training. This group is MSF certified.

I have a class "D"
a class "M" endorsement
and eventually a class "A" license for driving large and/or tractor-trailor vehicles.

auger is correct that in this part of Cdn--

-----we must have a m/c license & as he pointed out it is called a Class 6. This went into effect around 1968.
About every 4 to 6 yrs the RCMP are stopping ALL riders to see if they have said license.
First time this went into effect I was stopped numerous times & this one Constable (who I knew a bit from shooting up on our gun range) apoligized, realizing he had stopped me three times, so then I was nosey enough to ask why & he pointed out as of to date they found something like over 90% of the m/cs did NOT have a Class 6 License.
I do not know what it is like in other Province though lived & rode in Manitoba, Saskatchewan & Alberta, but this was before the manditory liability insurance & m/c license went into effect.
