Washington is one of the few states to have separate permits and endorsements for motorcycles and three-wheeled vehicles (sidecars and trikes). A permit to ride a motorcycle does not allow you to ride a trike, and vice versa. So, what do you need to do to get a motorcycle permit or endorsement? Here’s what you need to know about the Washington DOL motorcycle test, how to pass it, and what it means to ride a motorcycle legally in the state.
There are two restrictions for permit riders in Washington: no driving after dark and no carrying any passengers. You do not have to be supervised by a licensed driver or motorcyclist
There are 25 questions on the Washington DOL motorcycle test.
To pass the Washington DOL motorcycle test, you need to answer 20 questions correctly, or a passing score of 80%.
To get a motorcycle permit, you need to be at least 16 years old and possess a valid Washington driver’s license. If you are under 18, you do need proof of parental consent. You do not need to complete a motorcycle safety course. However, if you are over 18 and you choose to complete a motorcycle safety course, then you do not need to take the written or on-road skills test to get the endorsement.
All riders, regardless of age, are required by law to wear a helmet.
