 How to apply for a motorcycle/moped/scooter driver license endorsement if you are OVER 18

There are two classes of motorcycle licenses, Class M1 and Class M2.

  • With a Class M1, you can operate any 2-wheel motorcycle and any motorized 
    vehicle in Class M2.
  • With a Class M2, you can only operate any motorized bicycle or moped or any 
    bicycle with an attached motor.

Effective January 1, 2006, you may operate a motorized scooter with a Class M1 
or M2 driver license.

A motorized scooter is defined as: A two-wheeled "device" powered by a motor with 
a floorboard that is designed to stand on when riding. The scooter may also have a 
driver's seat.

Refer to the Motorcycle Driver Handbook for more information.

To apply for a motorcycle Class M1 or M2 permit, you will need to:

  • Visit a DMV office (make an appointment for faster service)
  • Complete application form DL 44 (An original DL 44 form must be submitted. 
    Copies will not be accepted.)
  • Give a thumb print
  • Have your picture taken
  • Pay the application fee
  • Pass a vision exam
  • Pass a traffic laws and signs test. You have three chances to pass the test.

Note: To allow you sufficient time for testing DMV will not be administering written 
or audio exams after 4:30 p.m.

After studying both the California Driver and the Motorcycle Handbooks, call your 
local DMV to schedule your appointment for the traffic laws and sign test.

After completing the requirements, you will be issued an instruction permit to allow 
you to practice driving a motorcycle. You may not drive at night, on the freeway, 
or have any passengers with you.

To apply for your motorcycle Class M1 or M2 license, you must do one of the following:

  • If you are under 21, you must complete a motorcycle rider training course 
    given by the California Highway Patrol (CHP) and provide a Certificate of 
    Completion of Motorcycle Training (DL 389) to DMV to be issued your license. 
    You will not be required to take the motorcycle driving test at DMV if you 
    currently have a California Drivers License. 
     
  • If you are over 21, you may either choose to complete the course by CHP 
    and provide the certificate OR schedule an appointment at DMV to take the 
    driving test. You have three chances to pass the test.

For information about the CHP training course, please call 1-877-743-3411 or 
visit 
www.ca-msp.org.

After you have submitted your CHP certificate or passed your driving test, you 
will be issued an interim license valid for 60 days until you receive your new 
photo license in the mail. Double check your address before you leave DMV and 
tell the DMV representative if you have moved or if your address is incorrect. 
If you have not received your license after 60 days, call 1-800-777-0133 to 
check on the status. Have your interim license with you to provide information
when requested.
