Licensing Requirements for Motorcycles

If you want to ride your motorcycle as a licensed motorcycle driver, then you’ll need to take some extra steps to get the appropriate class of license. The licensing requirements for motorcycle drivers can vary by state, but there are some rules that likely won’t change very much no matter what part of the United States you live in:

  1. You must pass a motorcycle driving test: If you want to be a motorcycle driver, you will be asked to show that you can properly handle the machine before your license is issued. You may be asked to drive the bike through a course and complete certain maneuvers like stopping the bike, passing another vehicle, parking the bike and reacting to certain driving interruptions during your test.
  2. You must pass a written test on motorcycle driving: The written exam for motorcycle drivers is different than the test designed for drivers of regular automobiles. You will answer questions about proper safety and handling methods, right-of-way information, and sidecar and/or passenger conduct.
  3. You must meet the age requirements: While some states allow drivers as young as 16 to be licensed to drive a motorcycle, others have higher age requirements. Either way, you will need to have reached your state’s age limit before testing.
While tests are used to actually acquire your license, the things you learn studying and readying yourself for them are valuable every day as a motorcycle driver. While you must study and practice in order to pass the tests and get your license, don’t forget to actually ingest the knowledge so you can benefit from it daily as you steer your motorcycle around town. If possible, try to take a class with a motorcycle driving instructor so that you can get a better handle on safe and defensive driving techniques which will help you handle your bike better and may help you get less expensive insurance premiums.
