Special Evening Hours for the State Riding Skills Test


Several exam stations are open one night per week from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. for motorcycle endorsement skill testing.

No tests are given in the rain or if the test surface is wet.

 
Students must:
  • Provide motorcycle, helmet and eye protection.
  • Provide valid proof of insurance for the motorcycle used for testing.
  • Have a valid driver’s license.
  • Provide your own motorcycle.
  • Have a valid motorcycle instruction permit, or a permit that has been expired for less than one year.
