Rhode Island Motorcycle License Practice Tests

Rhode Island Motorcycle License Practice Tests

Our primary goal here at Motorcycle Driving School Cafe is to give those with a passion to ride, help getting on two wheels. Whether that next step for you is to take a riding class and see if you will really like riding, or to figure out how to get your license.

So, what we have found is a great company helping soon-to-be motorcycle riders with passing their license exams in the U.S.

These guys have made state-specific exams to help you pass your Rhode Island license test – hopefully the first time – and for sure the next time if you have to make a return trip to the DMV (Hey, it happened to me for my motorcycle license ‘renewal’! I already had my license for 15 years and failed the written renewal. That was embarrassing and frustrating, for sure.)

So, if you really want to get your license, and you are feeling just a little bit on edge or unsure (maybe just a little less confident than you’d like to be), then check out the iDriveSafely team and see what they have to offer.

There are 2 levels of license practice exam – a 50 question test and a 100 question test. You can start studying on-line right now and get a real multi-media course. Audio and video, practice exam, solutions and explanations. It’s all there.

You can study one question at a time or take complete virtual tests – a read-and-review study guide and unlimited practice tests.

If you are looking for an easy, effective, and practical way to study, these guys could have what you need.

The study review is your comprehensive guide through the material, question by question. The practice test gives you a graded score which allows you to practice taking the actual exam and monitor your progress as you go.

And they have a guarantee.

But, to be clear, these are for ALL drivers and riders. The materials are targeted to include knowledge of your state traffic laws and rules of the road. They don’t include motorcycle specific knowledge tests.

This is where our Crush Your License Exam study guide becomes a great companion – iDriveSafely will help you get brain strong on your state traffic laws and rules of the road and Motorcycle Driving School Cafe will make sure you are master of the motorcycle knowledge.

How to Get a Motorcycle Driver’s License in Rhode Island

Rhode Island Motorcycle Driver’s License

Rhode Island Motorcycle Driver's LicenseAre you ready to take your motorcycle on the open road of Rhode Island? Then do it right and make sure that you have your motorcycle driver’s license.  Head to the nearest DMV office in the state and apply for a license.

Basic Requirements for the License

In order to apply for a motorcycle license, you must have a regular Rhode Island driver’s license before you are eligible for a motorcycle instruction permit. If you are 16 or 17 years old, follow this process:

Complete a 33 hour driver education course certified by the Community College of Rhode Island. The Rhode Island Driver Education Program is administered by CCRI with campuses located in Warwick and Lincoln.


  • If you have completed an out-of-state driver education course, it must be approved by the CCRI.
  • After the completion of the course and if you passed the written exam, you will be given a certificate. Submit this certificate along with a completed permit application to the nearest DMV office in Rhode Island.
  • Your parent, legal guardian or licensed foster parent must sign the permit application and have their signature notarized.
  • Applicants must provide a certified birth certificate, driver education certificate and social security card at your DMV office.
  • Pay the application fee.
  • Pass the vision test.

Note: The motorcycle learner’s permit is valid for 1 year only. This permit will allow you to practice riding a motorcycle.

For applicants who are over 18 years old, Rhode Island requires a special license to operate a motorcycle and is currently one of the few states to offer a motorcycle safety course. In order to get a motorcycle license the following steps must be followed:

      • Complete the Rhode Island’s motorcycle safety course which is given through the Community College of Rhode Island.
      • Bring your certificate of completion and your current valid Rhode Island driver’s license to your local DMV office.
      • Pay the fee to receive your motorcycle permit.
      • Hold your permit for a period of 30 days. After the 30 days period, you may return to any DMV branch office with your motorcycle permit and valid Rhode Island driver’s license in order to get your motorcycle driver’s license.

Before heading into the nearest DMV office, make sure that you have the following documents, as appropriate:

      • Certified or original birth certificate from any state
      • Driver’s license or instruction permit issued in another state
      • US passport
      • US military ID card ( active, retired, reserve)
      • Rhode Island ID card
      • Social security number
      • Marriage certificate

If you already hold a motorcycle license in another state and are applying for a Rhode Island license, the DMV will convert your existing motorcycle driver’s license or endorsement to a new license. However, applicants must be 16 years of age, have passed the motorcycle knowledge test, the sign test and vision screening. The final step is to pass the motorcycle skills test where you will demonstrate your competency in the operation of a motorcycle.

Motorcycle Riding Schools – Learn How to Ride a Motorcycle in Rhode Island

Learn How to Ride a Motorcycle in Rhode Island

Rhode island Motorcycle Riding SchoolTo legally ride a motorcycle in Rhode Island, state law requires every rider to complete a Motorcycle Rider Safety Course and have a motorcycle driver’s license.  The license will allow you to legally ride a motorcycle in Rhode Island while the safety program will teach riders the basics of motorcycling and how to stay safe while on the road.

Here is one system that can help you learn to ride safely.

Community College of Rhode Island (http://www.ccri.edu/cwce/motorcycle/)

The CCRI offers motorcycle rider courses to both licensed and non-licensed riders. For non-licensed riders, they offer the Basic Rider Course (BRC) which provides safety education and training that is compulsory for every motorcyclist in Rhode Island.  CCRI has incorporated the national Motorcycle Safety Foundation standards into their curriculum. They get the funding for the program through student tuition and from the fees assessed by the Registry of Motor Vehicles.  Classes for BRC start in April and end in November.


For licensed riders, CCRI offers the Experienced Rider Course which is designed for licensed riders who have been riding for some time but would like to get a refresher course about motorcycling or to learn new skills.

Through this course, experienced riders will hone their motor skills and fine-tune the mental skills that are important in order for them to stay safe when riding. Additionally, this course will also teach about risk management, increasing visibility, and optimizing lane position.

Students must successfully pass the written exam and the riding skills tests of either program. If you fail the written exam, you will have to reschedule the test at a later date but when you fail to pass the skills test, you will have to reschedule the whole motorcycle safety program. CCRI provides Motorcycle Rider Coaches that are certified and well- trained in order to provide the best motorcycle safety training available.

The Community College of Rhode Island has two locations:

Warwick and Lincoln.

To register for a course, please visit this page http://www.ccri.edu/cwce/motorcycle/registration_intro.html. Download a copy of the RI Rider Education Program Registration Form or call their office at Warwick at 825-1214 or call Lincoln at 333-7070.
