Everything You Need to Know to Pass the California Motorcycle Permit Test

Just like obtaining a driver's license, everyone that wants to drive a motorcycle in the state of California will need to get a permit first. Passing the written drivers test, a motorcycle safety course and the motorcycle laws test are needed in order to obtain your motorcycle permit in California. After you hold the motorcycle permit for more than six months, you can attempt to get your full license.

Passing the motorcycle permit test is the last step in obtaining your California motorcycle permit. This test will make sure you know all of the rules and laws pertaining to driving a motorcycle in the state. There are currently 25 questions on the motorcycle permit test in California. A score of 80 percent is required for a passing grade, so you need to get at least 20 questions correct to pass. If you fail on the first attempt, you can take the test again after seven days, but you will only be allowed to take the test three different times. Since this is an extremely important test with a limited amount of chances to pass, it is recommended that you take a motorcycle permit practice test.

While you can study for hours for the test, nothing is going to prepare you like a motorcycle permit practice test. These practice tests will allow you to see the type of questions on the permit test while testing your knowledge at the same time. A free California motorcycle permit practice test can be found here. After passing the practice test multiple times, you are ready to take the real thing. It is important to take your time before attempting the California motorcycle permit test; you should wait until you are fully confident that you will pass. Taking these written tests may seem daunting, but you will have no problem passing once you spend some time studying the California motorcycle handbook and the practice test.
