You will have to pass a written test, and a road test to achieve your standard license.

  • To pass the written test, you’ll need to answer 20 of 25 questions correctly (equivalent to 80% of the total number of questions). The questions in the written test cover information about motorcycles, motorcycle riders, and other traffic rules. You can find and learn this knowledge in the New Mexico Motorcycle Operator Manual.
  • A riding exam aims to test your skills in safe motorcycle riding. It will take place in either an actual traffic situation or a controlled, off-street setting.

Tip: Before taking the actual test, you should study the manual thoroughly and take our free NM DMV motorcycle test to get 100% ready for your real exam.
