About Motorcycle Permit Practice Tests

To operate a motorcycle in New Mexico, you must have a motorcycle license or a motorcycle endorsement on your driver's license. Licenses are issued by the Motor Vehicles Division (MVD). There are three different levels of licenses depending on your age: Class M 13+, Class M 15+, and a Class M 18+ license. A motorcycle license or endorsement allows you to operate a motorcycle, motorbike, scooter, or moped on public roads. A Class M 13+ license is only valid for motorcycles that are under 100cc.

To receive a Class M 13+ or Class M 15+ license, you must complete a motorcycle safety course, submit an application, the required documentation, and pay the fees. The tests are waived if you successfully complete the required coursework. To receive a Class M 18+ license, you must apply, submit the documentation, pay the fees, and pass the motorcycle written and road tests. If you complete a motorcycle safety course, the required tests will be waived.

Tests are scheduled through the MVD. The written motorcycle test contains 25 questions on safe riding practices and road rules. You must answer 20 of the questions correctly to pass. The motorcycle road test assesses your ability to operate your motorcycle safely. If you fail a test, you must wait a week to retest.
