About Motorcycle Permit Practice Tests

To operate a motorcycle in New York, you must have a motorcycle (M) or motorcycle junior (MJ) license or permit. Licenses are issued by the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV). You must first receive a motorcycle learner's permit. After successfully completing the requirements for the permit, you can apply for a motorcycle license. The MJ license is for drivers who are under 18. A motorcycle permit or license allows you to operate a motorcycle, motorbike, scooter, or moped on public roads.

To receive a Class M or MJ learner's permit, you must apply, submit the required documentation, pass the motorcycle knowledge exam, and pay the fees. After receiving your permit and practicing your motorcycle skills, you can apply for a Class M or MJ license. The state recommends you have at least 30 hours of practice on your motorcycle before you apply for a license. To receive a motorcycle license, you must submit an application and your documentation, pass the motorcycle rider skills test, and pay the fees. The DMV will waive the skills test for qualified applicants who complete an approved motorcycle safety course.

Tests are scheduled through the DMV. The motorcycle knowledge exam contains 25 questions about safe riding practices and road rules. You must answer 20 of the questions correctly to pass. 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.
