How to Get a Motorcycle License in Texas

You need a license to operate a motorcycle in Texas, and before you can get that license, you need to take and pass the motorcycle permit test. The requirements for this test vary based on your age. Younger drivers typically need permission from a parent or guardian, and they'll also need to go through different stages until they gain enough experience to drive a motorcycle on their own. Older drivers often need a license to operate a motorcycle, as well as a clean driving record, and they'll also need to prove that they have insurance.

One of the best resources available to you in addition to our motorcycle permit practice test is the Texas Department of Public Safety Motorcycle Operator's Manual. Even if you have a motorcycle license from another state, you might still find that Texas laws vary quite a bit. This manual will help you determine whether you need to wear a helmet, what riders should do on a wet or slick road and the laws relating to how motorcycle riders must behave in traffic. Many people find that the information they glean from that book can help them pass the motorcycle permit test to get a Texas motorcycle permit.

We know that the more prepared you are, the safer you are on the road. That is why we offer a motorcycle permit practice test that makes you a better prepared driver. After taking the test the first time, look at the questions you may answered wrong and make note of them. If you do this every time you take the test, you'll quickly gain a better understanding of each topic. While the motorcycle permit test is a major component of getting your license, you can learn everything you need to know with our practice tests and gain skills that will help you after you get your license.
