DMV License Resources

In a nutshell you need to do two things to get your motorcycle endorsement in CA: First, pass a written test for your permit, and second, (within a year) pass your riding test at the DMV for your full M1 license. (If you are under 21 years old you are required to attend a state-affiliate basic rider course but you can still take classes with Monkey Moto School!)
