Under Arizona law, motorcyclists are required to carry a motorcycle endorsement, or a license for the specific class of vehicle they will be operating.

How do I Obtain a Motorcycle Endorsement?
The requirements for receiving a motorcycle endorsement or license in the state of Arizona differ depending on the riders age.
Under the age of 18
If a rider is under the age of 18, prior to receiving a Class M license, Arizona motorcyclists must apply for a Motorcycle Instruction Permit. To qualify for the permit the rider must
- Be at least 15 and 6 months old
- Pass a vision screening
- Pass a written exam
- Carry a Class D driver license
The permit is valid for seven months and can be renewed once within a 24 month period. There are restrictions for this permit, however, including no carrying passengers, no driving on freeways, and no driving in the dark.
Over the age of 18
Those over the age of 18 can apply for a Class M endorsement by:
- Passing a vision test
- Passing a knowledge test
- Passing an on-cycle skills test
