Indiana recognizes approved motorcycle safety courses completed in other states and all five branches of the military and allows applicants to obtain a motorcycle endorsement after showing proof of completing an approved safety course.
If you are applying for a motorcycle endorsement, you must have completed an approved safety course no more than one year prior to applying for the endorsement. If your course completion card is more than one year old, you may not use that card for a waiver of the motorcycle skills examination.
If you are applying for a motorcycle endorsement in Indiana and have completed a motorcycle safety course in another state or through the military, you must provide a copy of the course completion card, and a copy of your driver's license and motorcycle learner's permit (if you have one), to the Ride Safe Indiana motorcycle safety program director. You may fax the copy to 317-233-0189 or mail it to:
Indiana Bureau of Motor Vehicles
100 North Senate Avenue, N481
Indianapolis, IN 46204
You must include your mailing address and phone number along with the copy of your course completion card.
If the safety course you completed meets the criteria set for approved courses, you will be issued an Indiana course-completion card, dated the same as your original course completion, which will be recognized at any Indiana BMV branch as a waiver of the motorcycle skills examination. Replacement cards are normally processed in one to three days plus mailing time. You will be notified if it is determined that the course you took does not meet Indiana standards.
