Motorcycle License Checklist

Statistics provided by The Arizona Department of Transportation indicates that 2,735 of all accidents in 2010 were motorcycle accidents.

In order to reduce this outstanding number by teaching motorcyclists how to avoid accidents, Arizona requires all riders to obtain a Class M motorcycle license. In Arizona, if you are a new resident and have obtained your motorcycle license in another state, we require you to be tested again in the state of Arizona.

The motorcycle license fees in Arizona consist of:

  • Age 16-39 - $25.00
  • Age 40-44 - $20.00
  • Age 45-49 - $15.00
  • Age 50+ - $10.00

At Phillips Law Group, our motorcycle accident attorneys want to assist in informing all riders in Arizona to practice proper riding techniques to remain safe on our roadways. Our attorneys also believe that if you or a family member has been injured in a motorcycle accident due to the negligent actions of another driver, the victim may be entitled to compensation for all losses and damages.
