What does the motorcycle test involve?

It is the Motorcycle Safety Foundation’s policy not to release the exact dimensions and riding requirements for motorcycle endorsement or licensing skill tests. License applicants should not be narrowly focused in practicing “to the test”; they should simply be competent in handling their motorcycle safely and precisely in basic skills including braking, cornering and swerving. We encourage riders to practice these skills at a pace that allows for continuous development and improvement. There are materials available that can help. For example, you can go the MSF website, msf-usa.org, and download the You and your Motorcycle: Riding Tips booklet, or access the Dr Jim’s Riding Tips mobile app that will provide step-by-step instruction and demonstrations on practicing maneuvering and braking skills that are typical of those evaluated in a state licensing skill exam. These, and additional internet sources, will give you guidance for practicing the skills needed to pass the licensing test conducted in any state.
