2. Applicants are to make a photocopy of their Indiana Motorcycle Learners Permit. 


3. Bring these 3 papers, along with your actual Indiana Motorcycle Learners Permit and $10 cash (exact amount - no change), to a testing site location at a time and date that appear on the 2020 ABATE Motorcycle Testing Schedule below -- updated 07/03/2020. NOTE: This may be different from previous schedules. 


We will be practicing social distancing, so please be respectful of that when you arrive. Face coverings are strongly encouraged. You will be directed where to go, and how to submit your paperwork. We anticipate a significant volume of applicants, we ask you to please be patient and polite. 


If your Indiana Motorcycle Learners Permit expired between March 24, 2020, and June 30, 2020, you can visit an Indiana Bureau of Motor Vehicles (BMV) license branch for an extension to August 15, 2020.




If you would like to get your motorcycle license without taking a motorcycle rider course, you are required to get your motorcycle permit from the Indiana Bureau of Motor Vehicles, and pass a riding test.
