FAQs

Classes

Is the Basic Rider course enough to give me an endorsement or would I have to take any other classes after basic?

The Basic RIder course is designed for the beginner rider. Exercises progress from basic to experienced riding skills. Must be able to ride a 2-wheel bicycle and recent experience would be advantageous.

How old do I have to be to take the class?

Since a driver’s license is required to receive a motorcycle endorsement, we recommend students be old enough to get their license within 180 days of taking course. In Washington State, 16 is the minimum age to receive a driver’s license.

Can I take a class without having a WA state drivers license?

Yes. You can still take the course “for practice” and receive a completion card, but we cannot add endorsement to the license.

Endorsements/Testing

I didn’t add the permit and/or endorsement to my driver’s license on time and now it’s expired, what do I do?

You have 180 days to add your permit or endorsement to your driver’s license. If you do not add your permit within 180 days, you can call the Department of Licensing and request an extension. If you do not add your endorsement within 180 days of receipt, you must retest.

How do I bring my motorcycle to the testing session without a permit?

We suggest you have a friend bring it, or you may tow it, trailer, or truck it in.

Can I share a bike with my friend for the test?

Yes you can!

Scheduling/Registration

I added the class to my cart but it wouldn’t let me checkout. What happened?

Occasionally, when multiple people are trying to check out at once, the class will fill before your registration is processed.

Why don’t I see any classes on the calendar? Are they booked?

Only classes with availability appear on the calendar. If a class doesn’t appear, it means it has filled and is no longer accepting registrations.

Do you have a notification system that will tell me when classes are available?

Please subscribe to our mailing list to be notified of new classes when they are offered.
