Motorcycle Test

Florida offers ideal year-round motorcycle riding conditions. As you prepare to get a "Motorcycle Only" license in Florida, note that you must pass the same exam as a regular Class E driver's license. You must also complete the BasicRiderCourses with an authorized sponsor. If you are attempting to get a motorcycle endorsement, you must already hold a Class E driver's license and have passed a Basic RiderCourse (BRC). However, if you just want to work on your motorcycle skills and knowledge to help with your Basic RiderCourse, feel free to take our practice motorcycle tests. Our practice tests can be taken as many times as necessary and get you familiar with all the motorcycle operator information you'll need. Our tests are designed to take over and over, allowing you to perfect your knowledge. You can also study the Florida Motorcycle Handbook which can be picked up at your local DMV or downloaded online. When taking the practice test make sure to keep track of questions you get wrong so you know what to go back and study. Click the "Start Test" button below to begin.

How To Get A Florida Motorcycle License

The sunshine state is a great place to drive a motorcycle but before you do you first need to get a motorcycle endorsement. This can come with expanding your current driver's license or getting a motorcycle-only license. In order to get this, you must pass a written exam and an on-skills test which is done through a Basic RiderCourse (BRC) through a Florida Rider Training Program (FRTP) sponsor. Applicants over the age of 18 must hold a Class E operator's license before obtaining their motorcycle endorsement. Those 16 and 17-year-olds must hold a learner's permit for at least one year with no traffic convictions. In addition, you must pass a written driver's test, which is the same one taken for a typical license. For those who have a three-wheel motorcycle will need to take a separate course and given an "S" endorsement. A small fee is required for every endorsement type.

The primary way to get your endorsement is to take a Basic RiderCourse (BRC). This 15-hour course teaches all the fundamentals of safe and responsible motorcycle driving and is meant for new riders. Coaches take you through the basic control and skills needed to safely drive a motorcycle. On the cycle you'll learn techniques like swerving, cornering, shifting, and quickly stopping. All participants who pass this course will be given a certificate of completion that allows them to get a motorcycle endorsement on their license. For more information on these classes check out the DMV website.

With the exception of Alabama, the state of Florida will honor motorcycle endorsements from other states. Former Alabama residents will be required to go through a BRC class before getting their motorcycle license.

Florida Motorcycle License Test Tips

The knowledge portion of the test is a little bit different in Florida compared to other states. If you already have a normal Class E operator's license you've already completed this part of the examination. If you haven't don't worry as this website is specifically designed to help you out. After looking through the motorcycle handbook look over the Florida Driver License Handbook as well. This exam is 50 questions and all multiple choice. You will be tested on road signs, traffic signals, driving laws, and safe driving skills.

The second part of getting your motorcycle endorsement is going through on-cycle skills test through one of Florida's accredited motorcycle safety classes. In the skills portion of the exam, you will be teamed up with a teacher who will go through a set of skills you'll need to have when driving on Florida roads. This includes basic skills like turning, stopping, and accelerating along with more advanced techniques including u-turns, sharp turns, and swerving.
