    About the VA Motorcycle Operator Manual

    The Motorcycle Operator Manual (Form DMV 2) was created not only as a study guide for the knowledge and skills tests, but also as a measure to reduce motorcycle crashes, injuries, and fatalities. Some topics covered include:

    • Motorcycle licensing requirements.
    • Keeping your distance from other vehicles.
    • Handling dangerous surfaces.
    • Riding at night.
    • Dealing with emergencies.
    • Carrying passengers and cargo.
    • Group riding.
    • Being in shape to ride.
    • Rider skills training.

    VA Motorcycle License Requirements

    Depending on whether you have a regular learner's permit or driver's license (or if you plan to apply for a motorcycle-only license), you may need to take some or all of the following tests:

    • Knowledge test.
    • Regular driver's license knowledge test.
    • Vision screening.
    • Road skills test.

    The Virginia DMV will require you to hold a motorcycle learner's permit for at least 30 days (9 months if you are under 19 years old) before you will be eligible for a full license. See our Motorcycle License page or the motorcycle handbook for more information.

    Virginia DMV Knowledge Exam

    If you're going to apply for a motorcycle license in Virginia, you must pass a knowledge exam prior to taking the motorcycle skills test.

    The VA DMV will provide 25 questions based on information found in the Motorcycle Operator Manual (Form DMV 2). To get ready to take the Virginia motorcycle written test, study the manual and try passing a motorcycle license practice test.

    NOTE: DO NOT use your cell phone during the exam as the DMV representative will take away the test and you will not be able to retest until the next day.

    Pass a Motorcycle Practice Test

    To ensure you pass the knowledge exam when you apply for a motorcycle license, you may want to take a motorcycle practice test. Practice tests and additional study tools can be found on our following pages:

    By taking the extra time to complete an online DMV practice test or download a study guide, you'll be better prepared to pass your written knowledge exam.
