To get out and enjoy all that Jersey has to offer today’s rider, you must first get your motorcycle license and that means passing the motorcycle written test. Obtaining a license to ride a motorcycle in New Jersey can be accomplished by either having an endorsement added to your existing driver’s license or by qualifying for a motorcycle license on your own.
Start preparing for the test now by becoming familiar with the information found in the New Jersey Motorcycle Handbook below.
Preparing With the NJ Motorcycle Manual
The handbook is lengthy and has its limitations. Once you become familiar with the information in the handbook, you’ll need to test that knowledge. Our experienced instructors have created New Jersey motorcycle practice permit tests designed to simulate the real exam. Our practice tests and cheat sheets contain questions and answers covering the same material found on the official test.
If you’re tired of just dreaming about riding, it’s time to prepare for the test using the best possible test prep material available!
