Examiners will assess the road-readiness
of clients. One-way radios are used for
communication, allowing the examiner to
give the rider instructions, advise the rider of
immediate dangers, and to discontinue the
road test if necessary.

The examiner will follow the motorcycle
rider in another vehicle. Instructions will
be given to the rider during the test using
a one-way radio. During the test you may
be asked to pull over to the curb and
then park briefly, allowing the examiner
to score on the checklist. There are to
be three of these stops during the test.
These stops are routine test components
and will be made regardless of whether
any errors have occured.

After the road test, the driver examiner
will explain the results of the test, and
areas where you did well or that need more
attention. The driver examiner will give you
a copy of the test permit and a copy of
the Examination Checklist. This checklist
will show you which errors were made
and the points assigned to each. Some
errors will result in the road test being
failed regardless of the number of points
assessed for other errors. The checklist will
also show you your road test results. It is
your copy to keep.

If you passed the road test, take your
road test permit to a registry to have your
licence re-classed. Just passing the road
test does not change your driverís
license. You must provide the registry with
your permit and pay the fee for re-classing
your operatorís license.

If this road test was unsuccessful,
practice your riding and then schedule
another appointment just as you did
this one.
