Do you Need a Motorcycle License for an Autocycle in Arizona?
In Arizona, a motorcycle license is not required to operate an autocycle like a Slingshot. A valid Arizona driver’s license is all you need to legally drive one.
Arizona 3 Wheel Motorcycle License Test
In order to get a trike motorcycle license, you’ll need to:
- Pass a motorcycle knowledge exam.
- Pass a motorcycle skills test.
If you complete an approved motorcycle training course, you will not need to pass the skills test and written exam with the AZ MVD.
Testing on a 3-wheel motorcycle or completing a 3-wheel basic rider course will limit your license to 3-wheel motorcycles only.
Prepare for your DMV tests with our Arizona motorcycle permit practice test.
Be sure to refer to your state’s motorcycle operator handbook and the 3-wheel motorcycle supplement from MSF.
