Intermediate Motorcycle Permit Qualifying Course

A Fair Amount of Recent Motorcycle Experience

 ’s intermediate motorcycle permit qualifying courses are designed for riders who have current motorcycle experience and have ridden on or off road consistently within the last year. To register for a permit qualifying eight hour course you must already possess the basic skills and ability to operate a motorcycle safely, including stopping, starting, shifting, turning, smooth throttle operation and competent braking.

It is important that you Understand the Expectations of this intermediate course.  You must already meet the minimum requirements outlined above to be successful.  If you do not already meet the minimum requirements above you should enroll in the Beginner Permit Course or perhaps the Kickstart.  

The classroom session covers important topics for intermediate riders and information to help you pass the Washington permit knowledge test. Range exercises practice shifting, weaving, cornering, swerving and quick stops.

Come prepared to ride with the required riding safety gear:

  • A helmet that meets DOT standards 
  • Long jeans or heavier material pants with no rips, tears or holes
  • Long sleeve shirt or jacket that is weather appropriate
  • Eye protection such as glasses, sunglasses, safety glasses or goggles
  • Sturdy boots that cover the ankle with no more than a 1-inch heel.  No canvas high tops or boots with an elastic ankle covering.  Riding boots must be sturdy and provide a high level of abrasion protection for the foot and ankle.  
  • Gloves that are well fitting and cover the entire hand such as mechanic or motorcycle riding gloves that provide abrasion protection, grip and the ability to operate hand controls.  No bulky or snow gloves.  

In compliance with strict DOL requirements, you will not be able to ride without the above required riding gear.  Arriving without the required riding gear is a forfeit of your tuition. 

You will receive a course confirmation from directly following your registration. This confirmation contains important information regarding your course. Be sure to locate it and review it carefully.

You really need proper training to be able to ride a motorcycle safely on Washington Roads. WMST provides a very safe controlled environment to be able to practice motorcycle handling, and provides testing for Motorcycle permit and endorsement. The instructors are very helpful and the courses are fun!
