About Motorcycle Permit Practice Tests

To operate a motorcycle in Alabama, you must have a Class M license. Licenses are issued by the Department of Public Safety (DPS). The state recognizes two classes for engine equipped cycles. The first type, a Class M, includes all motorcycles, motorbikes, motor scooters, and mopeds. The second, a Class M restricted license, is specifically for motorbikes, scooters, and mopeds, but it excludes the more powerful motorcycles. You can receive a Class M restricted license at age 14. You must be at least 16 to apply for an unrestricted, Class M motorcycle license.

To receive a Class M license, you will need to complete an application, bring in the proper documentation, and pay the fees. You are required to pass a vision test, and you have the option to either complete a motorcycle training course or pass a written exam on motorcycle safety and an on-cycle driving test.

The written exam contains 25 questions about signaling, stopping, and motorcycle safety. You must answer 20 of the questions correctly to pass. You can schedule the test through your local DPS. You are also required to pass an on-cycle test, which may take place in a traffic environment or a controlled off-street location. You will be tested on how well you know your motorcycle, critical decision-making, and your ability to handle normal traffic conditions. If you fail a test, you will need to retake it and earn a passing grade before you can receive your license.
