About Motorcycle Permit Practice Tests

To operate a motorcycle in Tennessee, you must have a motorcycle learner's permit or a Class M license. Licenses are issued by the Department of Safety and Homeland Security (DOS). At age 15, you can apply for a motorcycle learner's permit or a Class M-Limited permit, which allows you to drive a scooter that is under 125cc. At age 16, you can apply for a Class M license. A motorcycle permit or license allows you to operate a motorcycle, motorbike, scooter, or moped on public roads.

To receive a motorcycle learner's permit or license, you must apply, submit the required documentation, pay the fees, and pass the vision screening, the motorcycle rules of the road knowledge exam, a pre-trip inspection, and the motorcycle skills test. If you do not currently hold a Class D or PD license, you will also be required to take the regular driver rules of the road knowledge exam. The motorcycle skills tests can be waived if you successfully complete a Motorcycle Safety Foundation course. Both the knowledge and skills tests may be waived if you successfully complete the Tennessee Certified Motorcycle Rider Education Program (MREP).

Tests are scheduled through a DOS Driver Services center. The motorcycle rules of the road knowledge exam contains 25 questions about road rules. You must answer 20 of the questions correctly to pass. The motorcycle skills test assesses your ability to operate your motorcycle safely. If you fail the test, your examiner will determine when you can retest.
