GOT YOUR PERMIT

Passed your Knowledge test?...  Congrats! 

NOTICE:  Your permit is just that, a "PERMIT",  it is NOT a license and it DOES have restrictions.

PERMIT RESTRICTIONS ARE:

  1. Operating a motorcycle from one-half hour after sunset to one-half hour before sunrise; carrying passengers; and riding on any state toll road or limited-access highway.

  2. All motorcycle permit riding restrictions must be observed.

  3. Your permit is valid for 2 months and is renewable without retesting, with restrictions of course.

  4. You must take the road test within 2 years or you'll have to start from the beginning.

  5. The mandatory waiting period, after passing your knowledge test AND before you can take your MC skills road test is 20 days, so practice riding. 

 

But ride safe and at your skill level.  Bikes are machines and machines are unforgiving with zero conscience or concern for your safety.  Ride at your skill level!

MAKE YOUR ROAD TEST APPOINTMENT

Within your 20 day waiting period, if you don't have a motorcycle or scooter to test with you should begin your search for one or consider a rental service   BOOK WITH US -  earlier, the better..  Not all rental companies provide the same service as we do.  Different prices for different locations based on distance & tolls.  The closer you are to my home base (Mays Landing, 1477 19th St, Mays Landing, NJ 08330) the cheaper it is to rent.

We provide rental service for the UNRESTRICTED endorsement only.  ALL of our bikes and scooters are over 250cc's.

  • You need to choose the TEST SITE LOCATION where you'll take your test.

  • You can SCHEDULE/RESCHEDULE your test here.  To Schedule/Reschedule you'll need your Drivers License Number (begins with first initial of Last Name) AND your Permit Validation Number (5 digit number IN Validation Stamp) when making your appointment

  • Choose the county, test site, Date & Time that works for you & schedule.

  • Do NOT be late!  We cannot stress this enough.  Your appointment time is your appointment time.  If you are late, you are cutting into your own practice time.

  • At our agreed practice time - A licensed motorcyclist delivers two (2) distinctly different bikes to you.  You'll choose which bike you are most comfortable testing with.

  • He/She will review all documents, your gear, the bike, the test process overall.
