About Motorcycle Permit Practice Tests

To operate a motorcycle in Louisiana, you must have a motorcycle (M) endorsement on your driver's license. The state does not issue a separate license specifically for motorcycles. Licenses are issued by the Department of Public Safety (DPS). You can apply for an M endorsement if you have a current learner's permit or driver's license. A motorcycle endorsement allows you to operate a motorcycle, motorbike, scooter, or moped on public roads.

To receive an M endorsement, you must apply, submit your required documentation, pay the fees, and pass the vision screening, motorcycle knowledge test, and motorcycle skills test. The knowledge and skills tests are waived if you successfully complete an approved motorcycle safety and awareness program. Drivers under the age of 17 who have a learner's permit and endorsement are only legally allowed to drive within three miles of their residence.

Tests are scheduled through the DPS's Office of Motor Vehicles. The motorcycle knowledge test contains 25 questions covering road rules and safe driving practices. You must answer 20 of the questions correctly to pass. The motorcycle skills test assesses your basic vehicle control and crash-avoidance techniques. It also examines how you handle normal and hazardous situations. If you fail a test, you must wait one day to retake it.
