About Motorcycle Permit Practice Tests

To operate a motorcycle in the District of Columbia (DC), you must have a motorcycle (M) endorsement on your driver's license. Licensing services are handled through the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV). An M endorsement on your license allows you to operate motorcycles, motorbikes, mopeds, scooters, and three-wheeled motorcycles on public roads. You must be at least 18 to apply for an M endorsement.

To receive an M endorsement, you must hold a valid DC license, complete an application, pay the fees, and pass the motorcycle knowledge test. Additionally, you must either pass the motorcycle skills test or submit a certificate of completion from a motorcycle demonstration course. If you choose to take the course, you must visit the Brentwood Road Test facility to obtain your driver's license with an M endorsement. The tests are scheduled through a DMV service center. You can schedule the motorcycle skills test by phone or online.

The knowledge test contains 25 questions about motorcycle safety and driving practices that are covered in the DC Motorcycle Operator Manual. You must answer 20 of the questions correctly to pass. If you fail, you can retake the test after three days. The motorcycle skills test covers basic vehicle control and crash-avoidance skills. You should know your motorcycle well and how to operate it safely before taking this test.
