Do I need to obtain a DMV permit before I apply for a motorcycle license?
It depends on your state and your age. Rules vary. Most states mandate a motorcycle permit (DMV permit), while very few others make it optional or don't require it at all. See the grid below for your state's motorcycle learners permit requirements.
If you're in need of a motorcycle drivers permit, you'll need to study before taking the motorcycle permit test. To do so, get hold of your state's motorcycle manual. You can get one from any DMV office or online. All of the material on the test will be based on information contained in the manual. After studying, you'll next want to take a practice permit test.
These can found be online, many times for free. All questions on these practice tests are similar to the ones found on the actual exam, quizzing you on parking, passing techniques, riding in groups and more. Take as many tests as needed so as to feel exam-confident. The quicker you pass, the quicker you can obtain a motorcycle license.
