    How to practice?

    Just wondering, am i allowed to go out and buy and insure a bike before i get my actual license? because I'll obviously need something to practice on between the Action course and the time i go for the ICBC road test.
    The biggest problem with motorcycles is the NUT that connects the seat to the handle bars.

    I'm pretty sure at the very most you'd need is a Learner's?

    that's what i was thinking because in the ICBC books it says how you can practice before you get your lisence which makes obvious sense. so how can you practice if you don't have a bike then right?

    I insured before I even had my learners. They don't ask to see your motorcycle liscence. At least with me they didnt.

    Before you start Action, you must have your learners. After you complete Action you will have your MSA. Your MSA will allow you to ride during the day, without a passenger, and limited to Highways speeds of 80km/h...

    Is that all right? Someone correct me if I'm wrong.

    they didn't ask to see your license? someone smoked too much crack before work... they always check (almost always apparently).

    All you need is a learners permit to insure a bike. And to attend Action motorcycle school you do need a learners. And Action will let you use one of their bikes for the ICBC road test. That's what I did.

    you can buy and insure a bike with out a class 6, however you can not ride it untill you have a class 6, or learners permit.

    All they need is your license number, which should be the same for all the different classes you have. I insured my bike with only my learners, and no class 5 license.
    anyone wanna lend me a bike ?

    Stupid me has been riding for almost 5 yrs withoput a licence. Which means I have bpught and insured bikes without even a learners permit for that long. I am finally going to get my licence, in fact I start my course with action driving school on monday morning.

    I highly recommend the BCSC course as you leave with your actual class 6. Book far in advance though.
