About Motorcycle Permit Practice Tests

To operate a motorcycle in Texas, you must have a Class M motorcycle license. Licenses are issued by the Department of Public Safety (DPS). You can apply for a Class M with an I restriction at age 15, a Class M with a J restriction at age 16, and a full Class M license at age 18. A motorcycle license allows you to operate a motorcycle, motorbike, scooter, or moped on public roads.

To receive a Class M license, you must apply and meet the requirements for a regular driver's license. These may vary depending on your age. Additionally, you must successfully complete a motorcycle safety course, submit the required documentation, and pay the fees. Minors who are applying must also hold a class C provisional license, complete the required driver's education coursework, present a high school verification of enrollment and attendance form (VOE), pay the fees, and pass the vision, motorcycle knowledge, and skills exams. Testing may be waived for applicants over the age of 18 who have successfully completed the motorcycle safety course.

Tests are scheduled through the DPS. The motorcycle knowledge test 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.
