In Washington all you have to do is pass an easy written test and do a few low-speed maneuvers in an empty parking lot without making too many mistakes. They passed everyone in my group, even one person who dropped their bike. It's kind of a joke. You don't need to know how to operate the bike on the road at all.

My first "Motorcycle" license happened with I went to get a replacement (paper license didn't do well in my wallet after a couple of years) in Massachusetts in 1968. I was told that I had to test for the new MC endorsement whereupon I told them that I had just ridden from Oklahoma.

The DMV person allowed that I probably had the requisite expertise and went ahead and issued the new license with the "M" endorsement. Haven't let it lapse since.
