Question what's the written MC test like these days???

It 's been a long time since i had to take the written motorcycle test (80's). Back then it was about 20q's multiple choice.

What's the current test like? A friend of mine is taking it soon.
Thanks!!

#1. Tell them to get the book from the SOS,

#2. Forget everything you know about riding.

#3. Take the test, and remember to forget everything you know about riding.

It asks drinking questions and stuff too. But it is all in the book.

Yeah he is right. If your friend is worried about it just go in an hour before and read the book cover to cover then take the test. Should not be a problem.

don't forget to forget everything you read from the book before riding...

The test isn't nearly as bad as it "used to be". The test was changed last year -- to go more with what the MSF teaches/says about riding. Of course, I would suggest reading the book from the Sec of State.

Also, the rule/law has changed ---- TECHNICALLY, the sec of state isn't allowed to let anyone take the test more than once on the same day. It is my understanding that some offices aren't always "strict" with this rule.

I thought it was too simple, I went into the SOS with my MSF and they didn't make me take the road or written. I was expecting and prepared for the written but hey I wasn't gonna argue with them streamlining the process.
