How Can I Get My Motorcycle License in Georgia?

So, you’ve earned yourself a shiny new motorcycle instructional permit. Here’s what you need to do next in order to earn your motorcycle license:

  • The state of Georgia places scooters, motorbikes, and mini-bikes with an engine size of 51cc or higher all in the same classification. You will need a Class M license to operate any of these vehicles on public roads.
  • Once you are 17, you have two options in terms of receiving your license. You can take a Motorcycle Safety Program Course and earn a 90-day motorcycle test waiver.
  • OR you can make an appointment at your local DDS Customer Service Center. Here, you will have to pass a written knowledge test, an on-bike skills test, and a vision test before you can receive your motorcycle license.
  • Your vision test may be waived if you took and passed a separate vision test in the same year in conjunction with another license application.
  • If you choose to take the safety program, your 90-day test waiver excuses you from the written exam and on-bike skills test when you apply.
