To get an unrestricted motorcycle endorsement in Oregon, you must take a vision test and the DMV motorcycle knowledge test. You must also have a valid (or expired less than one year) motorcycle instruction permit or present a Team Oregon Basic Rider Training course completion card.

The Oregon motorcycle test consists of 25 questions, and you'll need at least 20 correct answers to pass (80%). If you have a valid motorcycle endorsement from another state, you are not required to take the motorcycle knowledge or skills tests.
