About Motorcycle Permit Practice Tests

To operate a motorcycle in Alaska, you must have a Class M license. Licenses are issued through the Division of Motor Vehicles (DMV). The state offers a motorcycle instruction permit and three license levels. You can apply for an M1 (any motorcycle), M2 (motor bike, scooter, or moped), or M3 (three-wheeled motorcycle) license. Minors must hold the motorcycle instruction permit for at least six months before applying for a motorcycle license. At age 14, you can apply for a Class M2 license and at age 16, you can apply for a Class M1 or M3 license.

To receive a Class M permit or license, you must submit your documentation, pass the vision screening, complete a Form 478 application, and pay the fees. Minors will also need to complete Form 433. To fulfill the motorcycle license requirements, you can either take a motorcycle safety course or pass the required tests. You must be at least 14 to receive an instruction permit, and you must also pass the written motorcycle knowledge test and the written knowledge test. An M2 license requires these tests plus an on-cycle road test. For an M1 or M3 license, you will need to take the written motorcycle and road tests.

Tests are scheduled through your local DMV or an approved third-party vendor. The written motorcycle knowledge test contains 25 questions about motorcycle signaling, crossing, and changing lanes. You must answer 20 of the questions correctly to pass. The on-cycle test assesses your ability to operate your motorcycle safely. If you fail a test, you must wait one day to retake it.
