Ohio Motorcycle Permit Practice Test FAQs:

What questions are on the Ohio motorcycle permit test?

The Ohio motorcycle permit exam will cover everything from the required safety equipment you must wear while riding to the rules to sharing a road with other vehicles. Make sure you know Ohio’s speed limits, traffic signs and signals, pavement markings, and more.

Does this practice test include the same questions I’ll see on the BMV permit test?

Each question on our Ohio motorcycle permit practice test derives from the actual BMV motorcycle handbook. The information you’re studying is specific to Ohio traffic regulations, and even more specifically to motorcycle riders, which means the questions on your practice test are the same as what you can expect to see on your real permit exam.

How do I earn my Ohio motorcycle license?

To earn your Ohio motorcycle license, you must be at least 16 years old—once you’re 15 years old, you can apply for a temporary instruction permit by passing a written knowledge exam. All Ohio motorcyclists must first carry this permit, regardless of age, before taking the on-cycle skills test to earn their full OH motorcycle endorsement.

If you’re under 18 years old, you must also first complete a state-approved motorcycle basic rider safety course. For applicants 18 or older, the basic rider course is optional, but it does allow you to waive the motorcycle skills exam with the BMV.
