DOL Testing

CWMT is pleased to announce we are conducting Two and Three Wheel Motorcycle Knowledge and Skills testing for the Department of Licensing!

Please visit the following link to obtain a DOL Motorcycle Manual if you do not have one.

Please check out this DOL Skills Test video.

As of August 1st 2012 the Department of Licensing no longer offers motorcycle testing at the local License Service Offices. This responsibility has been given to WMSP certified training schools throughout Washington State by legislative action taken in June of 2011. CWMT has been authorized to administer both the Knowledge and Skills Test by the Washington Motorcycle Safety Program (WMSP) and the Department of Licensing (DOL). These tests are separate from our MSF/WMSP Training Waiver Courses and are open to be taken by riders off of the street who would like to challenge the test on their own motorcycle. Once successfully completed, you will be able to have the motorcycle endorsement added to your license at any of the DOL offices.

!!!Please Note!!! Person under 18 by state law must complete a motorcycle safety program to obtain motorcycle endorsement. If you are under 18 do not register for DOL TESTING. Please register for a motorcycle safety class!

Testing Scheduled thru OFF SEASON DEC 1st thru Feb 28th are By Appointment Only! Weather and instructor schedules permitting.
