As of a couple months ago, you must take the road test instead of just renewing a permit. You may be allowed to renew your permit if you fail the test.

You can no longer get a waiver from MSF courses, you must take the DMV test.

I've had people tell me you could ride until midnight on a permit, but you can only ride until 6pm (or 8pm during DST).

Also, I didn't know your permit isn't recognized in some other states.

Class M - Motorcycle Beginner Permit A motorcycle beginner's permit allows you to practice driving a motorcycle or motor scooter while an experienced licensed driver supervises you.
To get a Class M Beginner's Permit:
  • You must be at least 15 years old.

  • If you are under 18 years of age, you must bring your parent or legal guardian with to sign your application.
  • You must pass the vision and knowledge tests.
  • You may drive a motorcycle or motor scooter from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. (or 8 p.m. during daylight savings time).
  • You may not operate a motorcycle or motor scooter at any other time unless a licensed parent or guardian supervises you.
  • You must have your beginner's permit for 180 days before you can apply for a motorcycle license.
  • Application can be made on the 181st day or anytime thereafter.
  • If you are under 17 years of age, you must practice driving with your licensed parent or legal guardian for at least 40 hours, including 10 hours during darkness, before you can apply for your motorcycle license.
  • If you are under 17 years of age, you must complete a driver’s education course (eight hours classroom time and six hours behind the wheel) before you can apply for any type of driver’s license.
  • [FONT='Arial','sans-serif']If you choose to renew your motorcycle beginner permit, you will be required to make a bona fine attempt to pass the motorcycle skills tests prior to renewal. If you do not pass the skills test, you will be allowed to renew your motorcycle beginner permit.
