California Motorcycle Permit Practice Test FAQs:

What questions are on the California motorcycle permit test?

The California motorcycle permit test will quiz you on a range of motorcycle-specific topics. This includes safe vehicle maneuvering, sharing the roads with larger vehicles, right-of-way and following rules, required safety equipment, required hand signals, and more.

What’s the difference between a motorcycle permit test and a regular permit test?

A motorcycle permit exam is an additional knowledge test required to earn a motorcycle endorsement on your driver’s license. It will ask questions specific to becoming a motorcycle rider, while the regular permit test (required for all California drivers) pertains to general rules of the road for all vehicle types.

Does this practice test have the same questions as my actual California motorcycle permit test?

Every question on your free California motorcycle practice test has been written using the actual California motorcycle and driver’s handbooks. The information you’re studying is specific to California driving and riding laws, which means the questions on your practice test are the same as what you can expect to see on your CA motorcycle exam. The California Department of Motor Vehicles often switches up its exact questions from year to year, but the information you’re tested on doesn’t change.
