About Motorcycle Permit Practice Tests

To operate a motorcycle in Pennsylvania, you must have a Class M license or permit. Licenses are issued by the Department of Transportation (DOT). The first step of the licensing process is to apply for a Class M learner's permit. Once you have received your permit, you can apply for a Class M license. Applicants under the age of 18 must hold the permit for at least six months before applying for a license. A motorcycle permit or license allows you to operate a motorcycle, motorbike, scooter, or moped on public roads.

To receive a Class M learner's permit, you must apply, submit the required documentation, pass the vision screening and the motorcycle knowledge exam, complete any required coursework and driving hours, and pay the fees. To receive a Class M license, you must apply, submit your documentation, pass the motorcycle rider skills test, and pay the fees. The motorcycle skills test can be waived if you successfully complete a motorcycle safety program.

Tests are scheduled through the DOT. The motorcycle knowledge test contains 25 questions about road safety and traffic laws. 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, you may have to wait a week to retest.
