You Need A Colorado Motorcycle Permit Before Learning To Drive

Your motorcycle permit test does not have to be a roadblock in your effort to learn to drive. With our practice tests, you can drill the information you need to know to pass.

The Colorado Motorcycle Permit Practice Test Helps You Learn The Rules

Learning to drive a motorcycle requires a new set of skills. From learning to balance to operating the brakes with your hands, a new driver needs to be open to new roadway experiences. Before learning these skills, the new driver will need to master the safety rules that are unique to motorcyclists. This is why, even if you hold a valid license, you need to take a motorcycle-specific exam. You first step to feeling confident during the motorcycle test is to reference a Colorado driver's manual. You can get a copy from your local office or download one here. Make sure you pick up the manual specifically for motorcycle drivers and that it is the most updated version.

When you have had a chance to go through the manual, it is time to take a practice test. Since you do not want to spend all your time reading and rereading the manual, we give you the chance to test what you have learned. You will be able to show off your new knowledge on 25 multiple-choice questions. These questions are randomly generated each time you take another test, which makes these tests a great tool in order to improve your score. You might see a question about the best surface to pull off the road on to or what hand signal signifies you are making a left turn. Submitting the answer will show you immediately whether you answered correctly or not.

On test day, you want to arrive feeling confidant and ready to take the test. The multiple-choice questions on the practice test reflect the formatting of the actual test, which may make your actual exam less intimidating. In order to receive your motorcycle permit, you will need to get 80 percent of the answers correct.
