To operate a motorcycle in Oklahoma, you must have a motorcycle license or “M” endorsement on your driver's license. Licenses are issued by the Department of Public Safety (DPS). At age 14, you can apply for a motorcycle learner's permit. Applicants who are between the ages of 14 and 16 are restricted to operating motorcycles under 300cc. You must hold the permit for at least 30 days before applying for a motorcycle license. To receive a motorcycle endorsement, you must have a valid Oklahoma driver's license. A motorcycle license or endorsement allows you to operate a motorcycle, motorbike, scooter, or moped on public roads.
To receive a motorcycle permit, you must apply, submit the required documentation, pass the vision screening and the motorcycle knowledge exam, and pay the fees. To receive a motorcycle license or endorsement on your current driver's license, you must apply, submit your documentation, pass the motorcycle rider skills test, and pay the fees. Motorcycle rider skills tests may be waived for successfully completing an approved Motorcycle Safety Foundation course.
Tests are scheduled through the DPS. The motorcycle knowledge test contains 25 questions about road signs and safe riding practices. 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.
