What the Riding Skills Test Entails/Covers
The motorcycle skills test consists of several elements which measure an applicant’s basic control of the motorcycle and response to hazardous situations. The motorcycle skills test consists of the following actions:
- Overall control
- Stopping at designated points
- Offset cone weave
- Quick stop
- Changing lanes
- Obstacle swerve (to simulate changing lanes)
“Points” will be assessed if the applicant fails to properly execute any of the maneuvers listed above. If you fail the motorcycle skills test, you must wait until the next day before taking the test again.
If you fail three motorcycle skills tests while holding a motorcycle learner’s permit, you must wait two months from the date of the last failed skills test before taking the motorcycle skills test again.
