March to October
Known as the Skills Test, the Parking Lot Test, the Cone Test, the MST, or the MSA, this is the 1st practical test in the licensing process. Riding a motorcycle at slow speed can be much more difficult than riding fast, so ICBC wants to see this first. The MST consists of a number of small orange traffic cones which mark a series of manoeuvres that you are required to ride in sequence, without putting your feet down or hitting any cones. Each sequence must be ridden twice, and ICBC doesn’t let you practice in advance, nor can you restart any manoeuvre if you make a mistake.
Successful candidates will get the Speed and Supervisor restrictions lifted from their learners license. If you have already had some significant practice time with a qualified supervisor, then all you need is the information necessary to pass this test. Students in this group class will hear first how the MST is laid out, how it is marked, how each manoeuvre is expected to be ridden, as well as common mistakes and strategies for passing. After a demonstration of each manoeuvre, students will then be given the opportunity to practice each individual manoeuvre, until they are ready to try the full sequence. Group classes run March to October for approximately 2 hours on Sundays.
Students may use a school motorcycle, or bring your own bike; make sure you are accompanied by a qualified supervisor if you ride your bike to the training location. Keep in mind that a noisy exhaust may be disruptive to other students and lessons; we may ask you to practice on a school bike if your exhaust is too loud. After the class, you’ll know how to be prepared for the actual test with ICBC.
