Types of Driver's Licenses and Permits

Motorcycle Learner’s Permit:

A motorcycle learner’s permit allows you to operate a motorcycle after 4 AM and before midnight.

You may operate the motorcycle only when supervised by a person who is at least 21 years of age, licensed to operate a motorcycle, and able to assist you while they are supervising from another motorcycle or other vehicle riding along with you.

No one, other than the operator, can be on the motorcycle. You must always wear an approved helmet while operating a motorcycle in Virginia.

For more information, refer to the Virginia Motorcycle Operator Manual (DMV 2), available at www.dmvNOW.com or DMV customer service centers.
