    Also known as a Class M license, a motorcycle license lets you legally operate your motorcycle on Iowa roads. To add a motorcycle license to your current Iowa driver's license, you must pass a knowledge test and an on-cycle evaluation and pay an additional $2-per-year licensing fee.

    Studying for Your Motorcycle License

    The best way to prepare for the motorcycle license knowledge test is to download the Iowa Motorcycle Operator Manual from the Iowa Department of Transportation. To print the manual, you'll need the free Adobe Reader software.

    If you prefer, motorcycle manuals are also available at your nearest driver's license station. You can pick up a copy of the manual during regular business hours. No appointment is necessary.

    The motorcycle manual covers basic vehicle control, crash avoidance strategies, common mechanical problems, and the importance of proper safety equipment. Readers also learn about Iowa laws relating to motorcycles, including the consequences for drinking and driving. Sample test questions are included to test your understanding of the material.

    Learning More About Motorcycle Safety

    While the Iowa Motorcycle Operator Manual provides the reader with a basic understanding of motorcycle safety, many people are interested in additional rider education. The Motorcycle Safety Foundation is a nonprofit organization that provides interested parties with professional training in motorcycle maintenance, obstacle avoidance, traffic strategies, and protective apparel selection.

    In addition, Iowa residents are eligible for the Motorcycle Rider Education Program administered by the Iowa DOT's Office of Driver Services. This course involves both classroom instruction and on-street riding activities.
