Motorcycle License

How To Get A Nebraska Motorcycle License

If you are looking to obtain a Class M license in the state of Nebraska, there are a few things you will need to do. You will be required to take a knowledge and skill test ran by Nebraska’s Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) to measure your skills and abilities to safely operate a motorcycle in traffic. Anyone who is 18 years or younger will not be able to apply for a Class M license until they have had a Provisional Operator’s Permit (POP) for a minimum of 12 months and have less than three points on their driving record within those 12 months.

If you are currently a licensed motorcycle driver in another state and are looking to transfer your license to Nebraska, you will have your knowledge and on-skills tests waived if you meet the required criteria. More questions can be answered on the Nebraska DMV website.

The Nebraska DMV has adopted the Motorcycle Safety Foundation (MSF) to allow beginning riders to learn how to properly and safely operate a motorcycle and get classroom instruction. Students can expect to learn how to balance and control a bike, safety equipment needed to ride, and effects of alcohol and drugs while operating a motorcycle. Both the written and on-cycle skills tests will be waived if a student successfully completes a course with the MSF. You can view locations and course schedules on their website.
