Questions on the written test come from the Illinois Motorcycle Operator Manual. On the knowledge test, there are 15 questions, including both True/false and multiple choice questions. A score of at least 12 is required to pass the knowledge test. The test may only be taken in English. The rider skills test measures vehicle handling skills in an off-street paved area.
