About Motorcycle Permit Practice Tests

To operate a motorcycle in Michigan, you must have a motorcycle endorsement (CY) on your driver's license. Licenses are issued by the Secretary of State (SOS). You must be at least 16 and have a valid driver's license to apply for a motorcycle temporary instruction permit or motorcycle endorsement. Minors must have a valid level 2 or level 3 graduated driver license (GDL). A motorcycle permit or endorsement allows you to operate a motorcycle, motorbike, scooter, or moped on public roads.

To receive a motorcycle permit, you must apply, submit your documentation, pass the vision screening and the motorcycle knowledge test, and pay the fees. To receive a motorcycle endorsement on your current Michigan driver's license, you must apply, submit your documentation, pass the driving test, and pay the fees. Additionally, applicants under the age of 18 must also complete a motorcycle safety course. Testing may be waived for applicants over the age of 18 who successfully complete an approved motorcycle safety course.

The tests are taken at your local SOS branch office. The motorcycle knowledge exam contains 25 questions on motorcycle safety and driving skills. You must answer 20 of the questions correctly to pass. The motorcycle rider skills test assesses your ability to operate a motorcycle safely. If you fail the motorcycle rider skills test twice, you will be required to take a motorcycle safety course before you can attempt the test again.
