Wyoming Motorcycle License

Obtain a Motorcycle License in Wyoming

Do you wish to experience the beautiful mountainside and winding roads on two wheels instead of four? If so, you may be thinking about getting a Wyoming motorcycle license. Luckily, getting licensed to ride your motorcycle is simple. However, there are a few steps you must take to register your bike properly and show that you have the required skills needed to ride safely.

Learning to Ride

Types of Motorcycle HelmetsBefore you begin any of the licensing or registration process for a motorcycle, you must have the skills to do so. The Motorcycle Safety Foundation designed a course that many states, including Wyoming, offer to prospective riders. There are two courses: Basic Rider Education Course and Experienced Rider Education Course.

Basic Rider Education

This course is for novice riders and will cover basic concepts and include classroom and on-bike training, generally offered on weekends. As a bonus, since practice motorcycles are provided, if a prospective rider finds out that he or she is just not cut out for a motorcycle, no money is wasted on a bike that would never be used.

Experienced Rider Education

This course is for riders with experience riding a motorcycle and a solid knowledge of how to shift gears and handle their bike. While unnecessary, this course is an excellent way to gain more understanding and become a safer and more comfortable rider.


License Requirements

Once you have learned the necessary skills for how to operate a motorcycle, you will need to do the following to become licensed:

  • supply identification
  • Pass a written exam
  • Pass an on-bike skill test
  • Pay $3 for the “M” class endorsement
