NEW RIDER COURSE FAQS

What will I need to register?

You'll need a valid Wisconsin automobile driver's license or learner's permit, and have the ability to ride and balance a bicycle.
The WI Motorcycle Skills Waiver Form is valid for those holding a Wisconsin driver’s license, OR if you are intending to become a Wisconsin driver’s license holder. This must be taken to the DMV for the M endorsement to be added to your driver's license.
You do NOT need to hold a Wisconsin Motorcycle Temporary Permit before class because you are on private property. If you intend to ride on the road prior to class, it is strongly suggested you do earn the Temporary Permit to remain a legal motorcyclist.
After the course is completed and Waiver Form earned, you WILL need to complete the Motorcycle Temporary Permit test before the M endorsement will be given
