A Class M license is required to operate, legally, a motorcycle or motor-driven cycle in Georgia. Every motor vehicle having a saddle for the use of the rider and designed to travel on not more than three wheels in contact with the ground, but excluding a tractor and moped (with engine size less than 50CC), are defined as motorcycles. Georgia law places all types of motorcycles including scooters, motorbikes and minibikes (with engine size 51 CC or greater) into one classification. All are considered motor-driven cycles.
Additionally, successful completion of the Basic RiderCourse earns a graduate a 90-day Driver License Test Waiver from the Georgia Department of Driver Services’ motorcycle licensing written test and on-cycle test. The course concludes with a knowledge test and an on-cycle skill evaluation. It does not waive the vision exam or any fees. It is only valid for 90 days from the day the course ends.
