About Motorcycle Permit Practice Tests

To operate a motorcycle in Minnesota, you must have a motorcycle endorsement on your driver's license. Licenses are issued by the Department of Public Safety (DPS). You can apply for a motorcycle instruction permit or endorsement if you hold a valid Minnesota driver's license. A motorcycle permit or license allows you to operate a motorcycle, motorbike, scooter, or moped on public roads.

To receive a motorcycle instruction permit, you must apply, submit your documentation, pass the motorcycle knowledge exam, and pay the fees. If you are a new driver under the age of 18, you must also complete a state approved motorcycle rider training course. To receive a motorcycle endorsement on your driver's license, you must apply, submit your documentation, pass the motorcycle endorsement skills test, and pay the fees. Applicants who are over 18 also have the option of completing the Minnesota Motorcycle Safety Center (MMSC) Basic Rider Course (BRC), which will waive the knowledge and driving tests.

The tests are taken at your local Driver and Vehicle Services (DVS) station. 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 endorsement skills exam includes four different riding exercises that assess your ability to control your vehicle. It also measures your hazard response skills. If you fail a test, you must complete an assigned practice time prior to scheduling a new exam.
