Virginia Motorcycle Permit Practice Test FAQs:

What questions are on the Virginia motorcycle permit test?

The Virginia motorcycle permit test will quiz you on a range of motorcycle-specific topics. This includes safe vehicle maneuvering, sharing the roads with larger vehicles, right-of-way and following rules, required safety equipment, required 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 Virginia drivers) pertains to general rules of the road for all vehicle types.

What is the difference between a motorcycle endorsement and a motorcycle license in Virginia?

A Virginia motorcycle endorsement or designation is, in essence, the same as a motorcycle license. Rather than receiving a separate credential from your standard driver’s license, the VA DMV marks a designation on your current driver’s license that indicates you are also licensed to ride a motorcycle. That way, you don’t have to carry two cards!
