How To Get A Missouri Motorcycle License

Missouri is the show me state and it will show you plenty if you decide to tour it on a motorcycle. Of course, to do so, you’ll need a valid motorcycle license. To earn a class M motorcycle license (or a class M endorsement on a standard class F license) in Missouri you’ll need to go through all of the necessary steps including the Missouri motorcycle permit test, which begins with being at least 15 and a half years old. If you’re under 16, you can only ride motorcycles that are 250ccs or lower, ride within 50 miles of home and complete a Missouri motorcycle training course.
For aspiring motorcyclists between the age of 16 and 18, these drivers will need to pass Missouri’s graduated driver’s license requirements. After driving a set number of supervised hours they can receive an intermediate license, and then once 18, they can receive a full license. Drivers receiving a motorcycle endorsement will still have some restrictions until they reach age 21.

The Missouri Motorcyclist safety program offers courses at more than 30 locations around the state. This is an alternate route to earning your license, though it still includes a combination of classroom and road instruction, as well as knowledge and skills test. To learn more about their available programs for earning a Missouri motorcycle license waiver you can visit their website.

If you will be moving to Missouri and have a valid motorcycle license from another state (or one that has lapsed within the past 184 days) the Department of Revenue (DOV) will allow you to transfer your motorcycle license to Missouri if you complete the following steps:

  • Provide legal identification and proof of residence
  • Pass vision and road sign tests
  • Surrender your out of state license
  • Pay license fees

Missouri Motorcycle License Test Tips

After taking and passing a state-certified safety course, applicants have to clear several other hurdles before getting their license. These include the Class F and Class M written test, vision test, and road sign tests. To pass the knowledge tests it’s important to get familiar with the types of questions you’ll see. The format of questions on our Missouri motorcycle test practice modules should help you prepare. The road sign tests, of course, will test your skills at identifying road signs (this site has a huge database of road sign questions for you to review). Questions on the basic knowledge test will gauge your general knowledge of how to operate a motorcycle safely, identify and use appropriate safety gear, and have a knowledge of safety statistics.

The Missouri on-cycle skills tests are conducted by the Missouri Highway Patrol. To set up an appointment you can contact them by phone at (573) 526-6221 or visit their website for more information. If you need to find your nearest location, you can do so here. During the skills exam you’ll be expected to demonstrate your ability to handle a motorcycle and operate it safely. This can include how to remain visible, wear proper clothing, using your headlight, maintaining proper cushion and lane positioning, identifying hazards, using your signals and controlling your speed.
