About Motorcycle Permit Practice Tests

To operate a motorcycle in Washington, you must have a motorcycle endorsement on your current license or a motorcycle permit. Endorsements and permits are issued by the Department of Licensing (DOL). You can apply for a motorcycle permit or a 2-wheel or 3-wheel motorcycle endorsement at age 16. A motorcycle permit or endorsement allows you to operate a motorcycle, motorbike, scooter, or moped on public roads.

You can receive a 2-wheel or 3-wheel motorcycle endorsement either by applying for a motorcycle permit or by completing an approved motorcycle safety course. To receive your permit, you must apply, submit the required documentation, hold a valid Washington driver's license, pass the motorcycle knowledge exam, and pay the fees. To receive your motorcycle endorsement, you must submit the required documentation, pass the riding skills exam, and pay the fees. Applicants who are under 18 must also complete an approved rider course. You can also receive the motorcycle endorsement if you successfully complete an approved motorcycle safety course, submit the required documentation, and pay the fees. If you complete a motorcycle safety course, the DOL tests will be waived.

Tests are scheduled through the DOL. 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.
