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. (Ensure you have proper documentation with you. See link below) The fee for the permit is $30.00, the fee for your new license is $3-$15. Ensure you prepay for your new license. Click here to download the Mass RMV Motorcycle Manual.  

NOTE: The RMV's new system requires you to prove lawful presence. You can prepare by visiting your Profile by clicking the link below:


Step 2 - Register For Your Class

If you successfully complete any of our licensable courses and have a valid Massachusetts motorcycle permit at the time you successfully complete the class 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 you either their motorcycle-only license or a motorcycle endorsement on your 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.

Out of State Students - Rhode Island, New Hampshire and Maine

Mass Motorcycle School is recognized by the states of NH & RI & ME as a Certified MSF Training School.  Upon successfully completing the (BRC) Basic Rider Course we will mail you your Out of State Completion Certificate necessary for Licensing in your state.


If you are at the RMV and they can not find your course completion information, the following will help:


To see that you have “completed motorcycle training” in ATLAS, the clerk should:


  1. Go to the Customer Spring Board (BLUE)
  2. Click on the “CRM” tab
  3. Click on the “Indicators” subtab



We cannot guarantee licensing in any state, you will have to check with the registry in your home state. 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, Rhode Island and Maine do 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.
