About Motorcycle Permit Practice Tests

To operate a motorcycle in Connecticut, you must have a motorcycle endorsement on your license. Licenses and endorsements are issued through the Division of Motor Vehicles (DMV). There are two different types of motorcycle endorsements. An M endorsement allows you to drive any type of motorcycle, including a motorbike, scooter, or moped, and a 3 endorsement allows you to operate three-wheeled motorcycles. Connecticut also offers the option of obtaining a motorcycle instruction permit that is valid for up to 60 days while you are completing the steps to obtain your endorsement.

To receive a motorcycle instruction permit, you will need to begin the endorsement process, pass the vision and motorcycle knowledge tests, and pay the fees. You must bring your current Connecticut license and an application form R-229, and minors must also bring a parental consent form 2-D. To receive an endorsement, in addition to the instruction permit requirements, you must be at least 16 and must complete an approved novice motorcycle safety course. Once completed, you can take your documentation and information to a DMV Hub office to receive your endorsement.

Tests are scheduled through your local DMV. The knowledge test contains 16 questions about operating a motorcycle from in the Connecticut Motorcycle Operator Manual. You must answer 12 of the questions correctly to pass. If you fail, you will have to wait a day to retest. The on-cycle test covers basic vehicle control and crash-avoidance skills. This test is waived if you pass the motorcycle safety course.
