Follow these Steps to get your Mass Motorcycle Permit & License


Step 1 - Take the Permit Test

Visit any Registry of Motor Vehicles and pass the permit test, this test is given on their computer. You DO NOT need to make an appointment. The fee for the permit only is $30. Most people pass the test the first time. However, if you would like to study, you should review  the MA Motorcycle Drivers Manual.  All of the questions for the Motorcycle Permit test are from the Motorcycle Manual.  Click here to download the Mass RMV Motorcycle Manual.


Step 2 - Pay the License Endorsement Fee

During your visit to the RMV pay your License Endorsement Fee ($15.00).  This is the fee to reprint your Mass Drivers License with the M Endorsement for Motorcycle


Step 3 - Register For Your Class

If you successfully complete either the Beginner/Basic or Experienced RiderCourse, have a valid Massachusetts motorcycle permit at the time, and your permit does not expire for at least 2 week following the course completion date, you'll qualify for licensing through the course with no further testing at the registry! The Road Test is done by our school.

Upon successful completion of the course, your permit number and pass status will be processed through the Massachusetts RMV. The RMV will mail students either their motorcycle-only license or a motorcycle endorsement on their existing license (you won't even need to go back to the registry!). Please note that RMV mailing of license is dependent on RMV fees being paid. Pre-Payments to the RMV can be made with credit card Please ensure the RMV has your proper mailing address, as they will mail your new license directly to you.

We cannot guarantee licensing in states other than Massachusetts, you will have to check with the registry in your home state if other than Massachusetts. Many other states do accept successful completion of a MSF approved RiderCourse for licensing even if completed in another state, some require that you complete the course in their state. New Hampshire does accept completion of the program in MA for licensing in their state. If you have any questions for states other than Massachusetts, check with your local RMV office, or visit for a listing of state coordinators (membership) to contact about reciprocity.
