Prior To Receiving Your Motorcycle License You Must:
Prior to receiving your motorcycle license you must show proof of successfully completing the motorcycle education course. The course is divided into two parts, the knowledge test and the skills test. You must pass both parts to receive your license. The knowledge test covers traffic laws, road signs, and safe riding techniques. The skills test measures your ability to safely operate a motorcycle in traffic.
If you plan to take the motorcycle education course, you should first get a copy of the Motorcycle Operator’s Handbook from your local Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) or police department. Study the handbook carefully so that you will be prepared for the knowledge tests. When you feel confident that you know the material, contact a motorcycle education school in your area to sign up for the course.
The cost of the course varies depending on where you live and which school you choose but is typically around $200. The course includes both classroom and on-cycle instruction, and you will be provided with a motorcycle to use during the skills test.
Once you have successfully completed the motorcycle education course, you will receive a certificate that you can take to the DMV to get your license. Congratulations! You are now one step closer to enjoying the open road on your very own motorcycle. Safe riding!
