About Motorcycle Permit Practice Tests

To operate a motorcycle in Kansas, you must have a Class M license or a motorcycle endorsement on your license. Licenses are issued by the Department of Revenue (DOR). At age 14, you can apply for a motorcycle instruction permit. At age 16, you can apply for a less-restricted Class M license, and at age 17, you can apply for a Class M license or a motorcycle endorsement. A permit, license, or endorsement allows you to operate a motorcycle, motorbike, scooter, or moped on public roads.

To receive a motorcycle instruction permit, you must submit your application and documentation, pass the vision screening and motorcycle knowledge exam, and pay the fees. To receive a less-restricted motorcycle license, you must have held an instruction permit at least 12 months, submit an application and documentation, complete the required driving hours, and pay the fees. Additionally, you must either complete a motorcycle driver's education course or pass the written and motorcycle rider skills tests. To receive a Class M license or endorsement on your driver's license, you must apply, submit your documentation, pay the fees, and pass the vision screening, motorcycle knowledge test, and the motorcycle rider skills test.

The motorcycle rider skills test assesses your ability to operate your motorcycle safely. If you fail a test, you must wait one day to retake it.
