Motorcycle Permit Test Question Help

Riding your motorcycle through the cities and countryside of Tennessee allows you to save on gas, have some fun and discover new areas. However, to be a safe and legal motorcycle operator, you must first obtain a Tennessee motorcycle permit. To receive your permit, you must pass a road skills test and written motorcycle permit test. The written exam will cover topics related to motorcycle safety and operation and does require some preparation on your part. Fortunately, we have a handbook and written test questions that can help you study. We suggest that you go through our practice tests a number of times until you fully understand the material.

For your convenience, we provide a copy of the Tennessee DOS Motorcycle Handbook Manual that you can study. The material inside the handbook covers topics that range from alcohol in the body and hand signals to knowing your vehicle and road rules. After learning the material, you can test your knowledge by taking the motorcycle permit practice test questions we have available for studying.

On your actual test day, you will take a written exam that contains multiple-choice questions. To pass, you must receive a positive score of 80 percent or higher. The test should not be difficult to pass if you study the manual and practice test questions. We suggest that you spend time taking the practice tests until you feel knowledgeable about the rules and regulations of motorcycle operation in Tennessee. Questions will be completely random and test your ability to recognize road signs and safely operate your motorcycle. These quizzes will immediately indicate if the answers that you give are correct. If you miss a question, you may want to find information in the handbook that covers that topic and review it. If you need to, take these practice tests a number of times until you feel relaxed and at ease with the questions. In the long run, this will not only benefit you in receiving your Tennessee motorcycle permit but also make you a safe, knowledgeable motorcycle operator who fully understands how to legally ride their motorcycle.
