Motorcycle License

How To Get A Georgia Motorcycle License

Georgia offers three types of licenses, a Class M license, a Class MP permit, and an M endorsement. Here’s the rundown of what each of these licenses mean:

  • A Class M license is an official license to ride a motorcycle in the state of Georgia and proof that an individual has passed each step of the Georgia motorcycle test and evaluation porcess including the road signs test, road rules test, cycle skills test, and vision test.
  • A Class MP license is actually a learner’s permit. Permits are available to drivers who are at least 17 years of age and are valid for six months to help a rider gain road experience and come with a number of limitations.
  • A Class M endorsement is placed on another type of license to indicate that you are also licensed to drive a motorcycle legally.

In lieu of taking the traditional Motorcycle License application process Georgia also offers the Basic Riders Course (for a fee) which allows graduates to earn a license test waiver allowing them to forego the written and riding portions of the Georgia motorcycle license test. The course includes its own written and riding tests which you must successfully complete to earn your waiver.

Many people choose the Basic Riders Course option as it can be completed after five hours of formal classroom training and 10 hours of riding instruction. For more information, you can visit their website at: For the traditional approach to rider training, you can learn more about the Georgia motorcycle safety program offering courses for all levels of motorcycle operators.

If you are licensed to drive a motorcycle in another state you can visit your local DDS location in Georgia to have your M endorsement transferred to your new Georgia license, just be prepared to display the proper paperwork when you arrive. If you have questions, contact your local office using this link.
