DMV Test Bike

The Original DMV Test Bike motorcycle rentals, just $50

"No matter how much I practiced I could not get my bike around the circle. The test bike was very easy to ride, Brian was early for the appointment, and the test was flawless. Save the time and hassle and call Brian, you won't regret it."

Steven, Poway

"That was the best $50 I've ever spent."

Ivan, San Diego

When is the bike available?

The DMV Test Bike is available every Tuesday at the San Diego Clairemont DMV. Meet time is 8am regardless of your appt time.

What do I need?

Bring your helmet, permit and $50 cash. You don't need to bring insurance. Trust me. I'll take care of all the paperwork for you. If you don't have a helmet you can borrow mine.

Where do we meet?

I'll meet you in the motorcycle parking area at the San Diego Clairemont DMV, 30 minutes before your scheduled appointment (directions below). You do not need to check in at the window first.

How much?

$50 cash covers bike delivery to the DMV, insurance on the bike, practice, and the test (in other words, everything you need to get your license).
Payment accepted: cash on site.

How much practice do I get?

I'll meet you 30 minutes before your scheduled appointment. This is plenty of time to get comfortable on the bike. Most only use 15 minutes of practice time due to the ease of riding the DMV Test Bike.

What if I need extra practice?

If you're a bit rusty or just need more time riding I highly recommend upgrading to the Skillspak.

What type of bike is it?

A Yamaha TW200 supermoto. This bike was chosen specifically because it is the smallest freeway legal motorcycle made, is lightweight, has a tall, smooth first gear, and a low seat height. It has been modified specifically for the test with street tires, a lower seat height, and smooth gearing. I've had 4'10" riders use the bike without any issues. A scooter will cut in and out as it goes around the circle, making riding very difficult. The DMV Test Bike sails smoothly around the circle without any gas, clutch, or brake.

Will your bike qualify me for a M1 license?

Yes.

What does the test involve?

Here's a low-quality video of the DMV Test Bike in action that'll give you a good idea. The test is easy on the right bike. VIDEO
