About Motorcycle Permit Practice Tests

To operate a motorcycle in South Carolina, you must have a motorcycle beginner's permit or a Class M license. Licenses are issued by the state's Department of Motor Vehicles (SCDMV). You can apply for a motorcycle beginner's permit at age 15 and a Class M license after holding a permit for 180 days. A motorcycle permit or license allows you to operate a motorcycle, motorbike, scooter, or moped on public roads.

To receive a motorcycle beginner's permit, you must apply, submit the required documentation, pass the vision screening and the motorcycle knowledge exam, and pay the fees. You must hold a permit for 180 days before you can receive a Class M license. Applicants who are 15 or 16 years old will also need to successfully complete a driver's education course. To receive a Class M license, you must apply, submit your documentation, pass the motorcycle rider skills test, and pay the fees.

Tests are scheduled through the SCDMV. The motorcycle knowledge test contains 25 questions about road rules and safe riding. 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 two weeks before you can retest.
