D.C. Motorcycle Permit Practice Test FAQs:

What questions are on the D.C. motorcycle permit test?

The D.C. motorcycle permit test will quiz you on how to safely operate a motorcycle in traffic, right-of-way and following rules, safety equipment requirements, 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 D.C. drivers) pertains to general rules of the road for all vehicle types.

Does this practice test have the same questions as my actual D.C. motorcycle permit test?

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