Virginia Motorcycle Education

Stay Safe In VA With Virginia Motorcycle Education

If you're working to earn your endorsement in any motorcycle license class in the state of Virginia, it's essential that you go through a motorcycle safety course before you go take your test. Virginia motorcycle education ensures that you stay safe on the road and that the drivers around you stay safe as well. Let's take a look at some of the nuances that are an important part of a Virginia motorcycle education. Before you go to get your motorcycle license, you'll need to know what motorcycle license class makes the most sense for your needs.


There are several different options for motorcycle license class in Virginia. The M designation on a license means that you're permitted to drive both two and three wheeled vehicles on the road. An M2 designation means that you're only permitted to operate two wheeled vehicles on the road, while an M3 designation means that you're only permitted to operate three wheeled vehicles on the road. You’ll want to carefully consider which designation makes the most sense for your needs. Even if you only have a two wheeled vehicle now, you’ll want to think about whether you may also want to operate a three wheeled vehicle in the future. If so, getting the M designation would make the most sense for you.


When you go to get your motorcycle endorsement on your license, it’s a good idea to first take a motorcycle safety course. This will give you the knowledge you need to stay safe on the road and will make it easier to pass the requirements to get your motorcycle license. People who are 16 or older are able to add an M designation to their driver’s license in the state of Virginia. In order to add this designation, the state requires that you pass a vision test, pass a motorcycle knowledge exam, pass a road skills test on a motorcycle, and hold a learner’s permit for 30 days.


Taking the Virginia Rider Training Program can save you some stress when it’s time to get your motorcycle license - successful completion in the program will allow you to be exempt from the road skills test and the knowledge test. If you’re over 19 years old, carrying your certificate of completion for the Virginia Rider Training Program along with your driver’s license will function as a motorcycle license for 30 days, giving you plenty of time to get to the DMV to get your official motorcycle endorsement. Participating in the Virginia Rider Training Program is a great way to quickly refresh your skills and make sure you’re ready to get on the road. Don’t wait too long to get to the DMV - your certificate of completion from your Virginia Rider Training program is only good for a year after you’ve completed the course.
