Obtaining Your Motorcycle License

In Virgina

Once you have graduated from our Basic RiderCourse you will be issued a Virginia DMV Certificate. If you currently hold a valid Virginia Driver's License this certificate serves as your Class "M2" endorsement for 30 days from your class completion date. The certificate is valid for one year from your class completion date as a waiver for the Virginia DMV written and riding skills motorcycle tests.

Once we issue your Virginia DMV Certificate, all you have to do is go to a DMV office with the certificate and your valid Virginia Driver's license and apply for a new license with your Class "M2" endorsement. You'll receive the license in the mail in three to five business days.

Note: If you are under 18 years old, you must hold a Virginia Motorcycle Learner's Permit for nine months before you can obtain your Class "M2" endorsement. (see

You may take the DC knowledge test before or after you take the Basic Rider Course. If you take the test before the course, be sure to apply for a Motorcycle Learner's Permit after you pass the knowledge test. This will make it much easier when you return for your endorsement.

In Other States

Virginia has agreements with many other states to accept the Virginia DMV Certificate as proof of course completion and the Class "M2" endorsement. You will have to check directly with the DMV in your state.

Some states require a letter certifying your successful completion from the school. Just let us know and we will be happy to provide you with a certification letter.
