Do I have to take a drivers education course such as motorcycle training to get a motorcycle permit?
This depends on your state. When applying for a motorcycle permit in Texas, for example, you must provide a completion certificate from a state-approved Motorcycle Safety Course. In Wisconsin riders under 18 must provide proof of completing a drivers education course and proof of enrollment or completion of a basic motorcycle rider program. And wannabe riders in Connecticut must present of valid drivers license to apply for a permit.
To learn the exact requirements for your state on how to obtain a motorcycle permit and, eventually, a motorcycle license, visit your DMV's Web site. You'll find a detailed requirement list, complete with links.
If you're in the hunt for a motorcycle permit, which is the equivalent of a drivers permit or a learners permit in that it allows you to operate a bike while under the supervision of another licensed rider, you'll need to pass a motorcycle knowledge (written) test. To pass, first study your state's motorcycle manual. This can be obtained from any DMV office, or downloaded online. After studying the manual, test your grasp of the information by taking a motorcycle practice permit test. These can be found online and most are free. The more you take, the better your chances of acing the exam on your first attempt.
