    Here in Washington State you can get your permit good for 3 months and 1 renewal for another 3 months. I say keep going and don't give up.

    What part of the test is giving you issues? whatever it is, keep practicing then retake it. A bike test doesn't get much easier unless you're using a scooter, and they probably don't allow it. Go find a big empty private parking lot and practice.



    In MI we have the option of taking a MC safety class or just a skills test. The class is about 15 hours and lasts an entire weekend, the skills test you can take just about anywhere and is relatively basic, you could probably pass it after drinking three 40's, at least I did.

    some states require more training (more courses) than others to get a license but i think the skills for each course are the same assuming this is the organization you went through...i did this to get my license and here in MA you need your permit to take the basic riders course and you get your license out of it...or you can go to the rmv and take the skills test with a cop but this is harder i believe...
