Arizona Motorcycle Permit Test Questions Help

Traveling across Interstate 40 or down Interstate 17 into Phoenix can be quite an adventure if you are riding your motorcycle. However, to legally take this ride or operate your motorcycle on streets and highways in the state, you must obtain an Arizona motorcycle permit from the Department of Transportation. To receive a permit, you will be required to pass a written test and a test that examines your motorcycle operating skills. The written exam is a closed book test that consists of multiple-choice questions. These questions are based off information from the Arizona Motorcycle Operator Manual. While the questions on the motorcycle permit test are not extremely difficult, you will be quizzed on specific topics that probably should be studied. We can assist you with that.

First, you should study all of the topics and rules that are listed in the Arizona MVD Motorcycle Operator Manual. Some of these topics cover group riding, basic vehicle control, animals, mechanical problems and alcohol in the body. Study each topic and train your brain to recognize key points. After that, it's a good time to take the practice tests that we provide.

On the actual test administered by the Arizona MVD, you will be required to miss no more than 20 percent of the questions. You should be capable of this if you take the time to go through our practice tests and study any of the questions that you miss. To make studying easier, a correct answer is shown each time that you incorrectly answer a question. When this occurs, you may want to go back to the handbook and review the material for that topic. When you finally feel that you have a good grasp of all the material presented in the practice tests, you are probably ready to travel to the closest Arizona Department of Transportation office and take the written exam. Passing it will not only show your knowledge of topics discussed in the handbook but will give you an understanding of the rules of the road that will assist you in the future.
