How Do I Get A Motorcycle License In Pennsylvania? – FAQ

I got my motorcycle learner’s permit by going to PennDot’s (website) and reading the motorcycle operator’s manual, and brought a completed Pennsylvania Motorcycle Learner’s Form (DL-5) with a check for $10.

The form and payment allowed me to sit for the written exam, and a pass provided me with a Motorcycle (Class M) Learner’s Permit.

With a Pa Motorcycle Learner’s permit, I signed up for a Pennsylvania motorcycle safety course.

Hi I’m Tom, A New Motorcycle Rider and Blog Author.

I am a new rider(Pa Learners Permit at the end of 2020, and I received a Pa Motorcycle License in 2021 after passing a Motorcycle Safety Course).

I bought my first motorcycle, a TaoTao TBR7, at the beginning of 2021 and have been doing upgrades on that motorcycle since.

I added to my motorcycle collection by buying a Boom Vader Gen 2 in 2022, and that Grom-Clone motorcycle has been upgraded by me as well.

I continue to ride my Boom Vader Gen 2 motorcycle as well as my TaoTao TBR7 dual-sport bike.

Fun Fact: I’ve only been on one group ride.
