The Knowledge Test is a multiple choice test administered by MTI staff. You must achieve a score of at least 80% to pass.
Please check our Testing Schedule under the Register Tab to get the specific dates and times the Knowledge Test will be administered. From November 1st, until March 1st the test will be given by appointment only. If you do not see a session scheduled or one that fits your schedule, please call us at 509-371-0888 and we will arrange a time that you can come in and test.
The fee for the Knowledge Test is $25.00. If you are unsuccessful, each subsequent retest will cost $15.00. Please study and prepare for this test. The success rate is very low for those that do not study!
To get an electronic copy of the current Motorcycle Operators Manual, please go to Washington State Department of Licensing. You may pick up a hard copy from 8:00AM to 4:00PM Monday through Friday at 613 N Rd 27 in Pasco. You may also pick up a copy at our Classroom/Range at 2125 Robertson Drive in Richland. The Richland office is not regularly staffed, so please call 509-371-0888 to make sure the office is open
Once successfully completed, you may go to a DOL office and have your Motorcycle Permit added to your license so you can practice riding. Additional fees will be charged by the DOL for adding your permit.
Your test results are good for 180 days.
If you already have a valid Motorcycle Permit on your license, or have completed your Knowledge Test within the last 180 days you may skip the Knowledge Test and go directly to the Skills Testing.
It is your responsibility to provide accurate information concerning the validity of your test date. If in doubt, retake the Knowledge Test.
