in Quebec it is even tougher
here the procedure is as follows.
Pass a knowledge test, which allows you to obtain a class 6R learner’s licence. This licence is required in order to drive during the mandatory driving course.
Take a driving school’s theory and practical course, then pass a closed track test (given by the gov't) . This step allows you to obtain a class 6A learner’s licence.
for the 6a learners permit for 6 months you have to ride with someone who has a valid permanent motorcycle license for 2 years ( on a seperate motorcycle)
Pass a road test, which allows you to obtain a full-privilege driver’s licence or a probationary licence. (probationary licence is for people under 25, 0 tolerance for alcohol, and 4 demerit points and they pull the license)
Not so easy.
