Motorcycles

Utah requires riders to obtain an endorsement on their valid Utah driver license in order to operate a motorcycle in the state. Adding an endorsement requires obtaining a new driver license, which requires riders to apply for a duplicate driver license after passing a 25-question written test and a skills test. Upon passing the written test, applicants will be issued a motorcycle learner permit, which is valid for six months. When ready, you may take the motorcycle riding skills test; upon passing, your new driver license with motorcycle endorsement will be mailed to you. The skills test may be waived if you present the driver license office with a completion card from a Motorcycle Safety Foundation Beginning Rider Course.
