How To Get A Connecticut Motorcycle License

In order to operate any vehicle on the road, you're going to need a license and a motorcycle is no different. Getting the proper endorsement in the state of Colorado includes a few steps such as a written exam, vision test, and on-skills test. If you have satisfied all these requirements you can obtain an M or 3 endorsement - the former allows for the driving of all motorcycles while the 3 is limited to three-wheelers only. Before you can even attempt this testing you must first have a Connecticut driver's license. Learner's permits are available and are recommended for anyone who just wants to practice. If under the age of 18 you must have a certificate of parental consent. These permits only last 60 days and have numerous restrictions based on the time of the day and access to highways.

If you are unsure that you can pass either the knowledge or on-skills test than an approved safety course was meant for you.The Connecticut Rider Education Program (CONREP) for Motorcycle Safety includes a long list of accredited schools. In these schools, you will be learning the basics of how these vehicles operate and safe maneuvers to take. This schooling is done in the classroom and in a hands-on driving environment. Once you pass through these courses you will be given a certificate of completion that can then be taken to your local DMV, where you will be given a motorcycle endorsement.

If you have a motorcycle license from another state or through the military you may be eligible for a waiver of the testing. Get in contact with your local Connecticut DMV location.

The on-cycle skills portion is when all your practice and knowledge are really tested. This short test will have you on your motorcycle with an instructor watching what you do. This examiner will score you on a variety of factors like acceleration, turning safely, adjusting speed, and swerving.
