Motorcycle Test


This site is focused on preparing you to take the knowledge and on-cycle skills test. Our Oregon motorcycle practice test is focused primarily on the information that comes directly out of the Oregon Motorcycle and Moped Manual. Each of our practice tests are designed to make it feel like you are taking the actual test, which we’ve learned is the best way to get someone prepared. The actual test consists of 25 multiple-choice questions. You must get 20 or more of these questions correct, with a passing score of 80%. Make sure you take your time reading through the Motorcycle and Moped manual and reviewing each question and answer when taking the practice test. See if you can get a perfect score with our practice tests before scheduling to take the actual test. Click the "Start Test" button below to begin.

Motorcycle License

How To Get an Oregon Motorcycle License

If you are looking to become a legal motorcycle rider in Oregon, you will need to obtain a valid driver license and a motorcycle endorsement. You must successfully pass an approved Team Oregon course prior to applying for a motorcycle endorsement. If you take a Basic Rider Training course, the on-cycle skills tests and knowledge test will both be waived. However, if you take an Intermediate Rider Training course, only the on-cycle skills test will be waived, and you’ll still be required to take Oregon’s DMV knowledge test. Anyone under the age of 21 will only have the option to complete a Basic Rider Training course to get both tests waived.

If you are a new resident to Oregon, or will be moving to Oregon in the near future and already have a motorcycle license issued from another state, you will not be required to take any further testing. View Oregon’s DMV website for more information on getting your license or endorsement transferred.

One of the options you have to get the knowledge and/or on cycle skills test waived, is to take a Team Oregon course. These courses offer basic and intermediate level courses and are approved by the state. You will gain experience with on-cycle training and also participate in classroom instruction. These courses will help riders gain a sense of confidence to ride “safer, smarter and more skillfully”. You can view their website to sign up for their available courses that are open to the public.

Oregon Motorcycle License Test Tips

The Oregon state knowledge test will ensure that you are ready to safely operate a motorcycle on the streets. This site will help you to understand the rules of the road and assist in your efforts to successfully pass the knowledge test. This portion of the exam will focus on topics such as identifying potential road hazards, escape routes, and your decision-making skills. You will see questions that are based upon what you should do before operating a motorcycle, your vehicle control skills, and sharing the road.

Unless you successfully complete a rider education course from Team Oregon, you will need to take the on-cycle skills test. This exam will test your ability to operate a motorcycle on the road and test your ability to maneuver the bike. You can expect this test to run between 20-25 minutes. Make sure you also take the time practicing safe turns, braking, and speed adjustments. Once you are ready to perform the exam, you can schedule your appointment here.
