About Motorcycle Permit Practice Tests

To operate a motorcycle in Ohio, you must have a motorcycle license or a motorcycle endorsement on your driver's license. Licenses are issued by the Bureau of Motor Vehicles (BMV). You can apply for a motorcycle temporary instruction permit identification card (TIPIC) at age 15½, and at age 16, you can receive a motorcycle license or endorsement. A motorcycle license or endorsement allows you to operate a motorcycle, motorbike, scooter, or moped on public roads.

To receive a motorcycle TIPIC, you must apply, submit your documentation, pass the vision screening and the motorcycle knowledge exam, and pay the fees. If you are under the age of 18, you must hold a TIPIC for six months, follow the graduated driver license (GDL) requirements, complete a driver education and motorcycle safety education course, and fulfill your driving requirements before you apply for a license or endorsement. Minors who have met these requirements and applicants who are over the age of 18 can apply for a motorcycle license or endorsement by submitting an application and documentation, paying the fees, and passing the motorcycle riding exam. This exam may be waived if you have successfully completed a Motorcycle Ohio course in the last 60 days.

Tests are scheduled through the BMV. The motorcycle knowledge test consists 30 questions about road rules and safe riding practices. You must answer 20 of the questions correctly to pass. You can retest the next day if you fail. The motorcycle riding exam assesses your ability to operate your motorcycle safely. If you fail the riding exam, you must wait a week to retest.
