Illinois Motorcycle Permit Practice Test FAQs:

What questions are on the Illinois motorcycle permit test?

Your IL motorcycle permit test features questions on topics found in your SOS motorcycle handbook. You’ll need to know motorcycle-specific subjects such as required safety equipment, how to legally share the road, 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 specific to earning a motorcycle endorsement on your driver’s license. It will ask questions unique to becoming a motorcycle rider, while the regular permit test pertains to general rules of the road for all vehicle types.

How do I earn my Illinois motorcycle endorsement?

To earn your Illinois motorcycle endorsement on your license, you must be at least 16 years and hold a standard Illinois driver’s license. If you’re under 18 years old, you’re also required to complete a motorcycle safety course, as well as take the written knowledge and on-cycle skills exams. If you’re 18 or older, the safety course is optional, but it does allow you to waive the knowledge and skills tests with the SOS.
