You may hear a skills test referred to as a road test. 

Motorcycle Road Test

If you’re applying for a motorcycle (Class M) license, you must take your skills test at a designated SCDMV branch Monday through Friday except for the following:

  • Allendale is only open Tuesdays and Thursdays.
  • Myrtle Beach – Commons offer motorcycle skills tests, by appointment.
  • Union only offers motorcycle tests on Thursdays, by appointment.

Failing the Motorcycle Road Test

In order to convert your motorcycle beginner's permit (Class M) to a regular motorcycle license, you must pass the road test.

You can attempt the motorcycle road test no more than three times with the SCDMV. If you attempt and fail the motorcycle road test three times with the agency, you must take an SCDMV-authorized motorcycle safety course and pass the test as part of that course to receive your license.

Once you complete the safety course, you can receive a motorcycle license if you provide the SCDMV with proof of completing the course and documentation showing you passed an exam equivalent to the SCDMV's motorcycle skills test.
