Colorado Motorcycle Permit Test Questions Study Guide

If you are planning on riding your motorcycle across Interstate 70 or throughout Colorado, you will want to make sure that you are a legal motorcycle operator. Without proper licensing, you could get pulled over and receive a ticket. To alleviate that challenge, head to the Colorado Department of Motor Vehicles and apply for a motorcycle permit. The tests that you will take will analyze your riding skills and knowledge of motorcycle rules and safety. For the written portion of your testing, you will not be able to reference any material as you take the test. Fortunately, you probably will not need to if you prepare with a practice test. They have been created to help you feel confident that you can do well on the actual motorcycle permit test.

To review material for the written test, you should reference the Colorado DMV Motorcycle Handbook Manual.

However, you should not take the official written test until you take the time to go through a practice test.

The motorcycle permit practice test questions that are provided for you include multiple-choice questions based on the official motorcycle permit test. Your goal is to correctly answer every question. On the actual written test, you will not have to score a 100 percent. Instead, you are allowed to miss a maximum of 20 percent of the questions. You should be able accomplish this if you put in some due diligence and study the practice tests. After you feel like you have learned all that you can, roll into the Colorado DMV and take the written exam.
