Training & Endorsement
Riding a motorcycle is more than a hobby. It’s an athletic pursuit requiring skills, coordination and reflexes of its own. Whether you’re a new rider just getting comfortable on a bike or an old hand looking to kick some bad habits, there’s always more to learn.
Check out the endorsement and training options below to ride your best ride.
Get an endorsement
To ride a motorcycle or trike in Washington, you need to have an endorsement on your driver license or an instruction permit for learning how to ride on public roads.
Getting your instruction permit or endorsement includes passing a knowledge and skills test. We recommend completing these tests as part of an approved training course, which are available for beginner, intermediate and advanced riders.
Learn more and get started on your endorsement or permit through the WA Department of Licensing.
