How To Get an Indiana Motorcycle License

If you live in the state of Indiana and want to drive a motorcycle you’re going to have to get the mandatory credentials first. Motorcycle endorsements require the completion of both a knowledge exam and a skills test. Many applicants may also need to pass a vision screening. Motorcycle endorsements can be given out to anyone 16 years and 180 days old and hold a valid Indiana driver’s license. Those under the age of 18 must have a parent or guardian sign an Agreement of Financial Liability.   

Learner’s permits are available and require just passing the knowledge and vision portions of the testing. These permits allow people to practice and are subject to restrictions which include driving only in daylight hours, no passengers, and wearing an approved helmet. These one-year permits may be renewed once for an additional 12 months.

The Entry-Level Motorcycle Safety Courses in Indiana are another way to earn your endorsement. These 15-hour classes are divided into five hours of class instruction and 10 hours of on-cycle practice. Once there you will learn the different types of motorcycle, their basic controls, what safety gear to wear, and what skills you need to operate one safely. Once you pass this class you’ll be given a certification proving you are a safe driver which you can turn in to your local DMV to get your motorcycle endorsement. Sign up for classes online.

If you just moved to the state of Indiana and have your motorcycle endorsement already you may be able to waive any testing if you’ve passed an out of state safety course. Get in contact with your local Indiana Department of Transportation for more information.

Indiana Motorcycle License Test Tips

The knowledge portion of the exam will go through everything you learned in the operator manual. The questions will vary but will consist of basic vehicle controls, how to handle dangerous situations, what to wear, your responsibilities and much more. When using this website correctly, you are a shoo-in to pass this exam. You can expect 25 multiple choice questions, some with pictures, of which 20 must be answered correctly. Once you pass this portion of the test you can get your learner’s permit and be eligible for the on-cycle part.

The next exam you must pass to get your motorcycle endorsement is the on-cycle skills test. Before applying applicants must have a valid Indiana driver’s license, a motorcycle learner’s permit, and provide the motorcycle used for the skills exam. An examiner will rate the applicant on many skills like control, starting, weaving, swerving, stopping, and much more. If you accumulate more than 10 points, drop the motorcycle, or are intentionally unsafe you will fail. Tests are under the jurisdiction of Ride Safe Indiana with sites all over the state.
