Riding a motorcycle is significantly more dangerous than driving a car, it's a widely known fact we all need to recognize. The only way to reduce the danger is to constantly engage in extensive training, both on and off the road.  Learning the rules of the road and motorcycle-specific driving rules is just the first step and you must take it well before you actually saddle a bike.  This free California motorcycle permit practice test 2016 will help you get started and point your feet in the right direction.  Go ahead and take it for a spin right now!

One of the most common misconceptions among first time California motorcycle drivers license applicants is that you only have to study motorcycle driving rules in order to be able to apply for a class M1 or M2 licenses (that's your motorcycle driver's license). Wrong!  A soon-to-be motorcyclist must pass two DMV knowledge exams: a regular DMV permit test taken by all drivers license applicants, and the California motorcycle permit test that will contain questions specific to the license class you are applying for.  That's why you should not limit yourself to taking just this CA motorcycle practice permit test, make sure you go over regular sample knowledge exams as well before you head off to a local DMV office.  Ideally, you should be able to nail both the 2016 California DMV permit test Simulator and the CA motorcycle permit test Simulator with a score of no less than 90% every time you take them.

This free motorcycle DMV practice test is based on the 2016 version of the California motorcycle drivers manual.  All of the questions on the practice test are multiple choice, with three or four answers provided for every question.  Only one of the answers is correct.  Since this is just a sample knowledge test and it's meant to be used as a study tool, the test is supplemented with additional study aids.  If you find that one of these California motorcycle permit test questions is too hard for you, you can request for a helpful hint to be shown or for the system to reduce the number of provided answers to just two choices.  Don't hesitate to use these options, but remember that you will not have a liberty of using these tools while taking the real California DMV test for motorcycles.  Make sure you go through the test without using study aids at least once before you head over to the next practice quiz.

The passing grade for this 2016 CA motorcycle practice permit test is 80%, but we recommend that you keep working on the sample quiz until you score no less than 90% or even answer all questions correctly.  Remember, there is really no such thing as being overly prepared for an exam.  The practice permit test is free and you can keep retaking it until you hit your goal, so don't waste your time on visiting a DMV office until you're sure you can pass the test!

Looking for more permit test study resources?  We suggest that you read the regular 2016 California drivers manual and the motorcycle drivers handbook.  Both of them are available on the DMV website and you can download them free of charge.  Forget those people who tell you that you don't need to read the manual - you do, and not just because it will help you pass the DMV permit test the first time you take it.  Driver handbooks contains a wealth of driving knowledge, you can pick up tonnes of defensive driving tactics and techniques from those book, learn how to interact with other drivers and stay safe on the road.  Remember - safety is paramount when it comes to motorcycles and you really don't want to be cutting corners here.  Read both books, work on this free California motorcycle practice permit test 2016 and see you on the road!
