NEW MEXICO MOTORCYCLE LICENSE
One Quick Trip!
WHAT TO KNOW BEFORE APPLYING FOR A NEW MEXICO MOTORCYCLE LICENSE
In New Mexico, you have 3 endorsements to choose from when applying for your Motorcycle License. W – any two- or three-wheeled motorcycle with an engine of 100 or more cubic centimeters piston displacement. Y – any two- or three-wheeled motorcycle with an engine of at least 50 but less than 100 cubic centimeters piston displacement. Z – any two- or three-wheeled motorcycle with an engine of less than 50 cubic centimeters piston displacement. Keep in mind that you will have to choose the appropriate endorsement for the size of motorcycle that you will be operating.
Once you apply for a Motorcycle Licence, you will receive a temporary printout of your license that is valid for 45 days. You will need to carry this printout until you receive your physical license in the mail. All licenses are printed and mailed by the State of New Mexico. Please allow up to 3 weeks for you to receive your new license in the mail. We understand that many scenarios may impact your Motorcycle License application process. If you have any questions, feel free to contact us at 505-341-2MVD, or email us. We will be more than happy to assist you in the process.
DOCUMENTS AND EXAMS REQUIRED FOR A MOTORCYCLE LICENSE
Our goal at MVD Now is to save you the headache and stress that comes with applying for your motorcycle license. We understand that you are busy, that time is valuable and limited, and that the last thing you want to do is wait in line. That’s why we want to help you make one quick trip to the MVD. Here are the documents that you will need to provide to apply for your New Mexico Motorcycle License.
- One (1) motorcycle written test proof of completion
- One (1) motorcycle road test proof of completion
- One (1) proof of completion of the Motorcycle Safety Foundation (MSF) Basic Rider Course. Visit the New Mexico Motorcycle Safety Program website for more information on classes, cost, and location.
If you do not have a current driver’s license in New Mexico or any other state, you will also need to provide the required documents for a first-time license in addition to the requirements mentioned above. We recommend that you visit our Real ID or Standard Driver’s License pages to view those required documents.
OUT-OF-STATE MOTORCYCLE LICENSE TRANSFER
If you moved to New Mexico from another state, you can keep your motorcycle endorsement without retesting. Once you apply for a New Mexico Driver’s License, you will receive a NM equivalent endorsement on your NM License. Make sure that your out-of-state Driver’s License has not expired for more than 1 year. If so, you will need to retake your motorcycle written and road test, or complete the MSF Basic RiderCourse.
