I know every state is different but what can I expect on a written exam?

You should expect to pick up the little booklet with all the laws when you enter the DMV office and memorize the rules by the time they're ready to seat you for the test.  Should take 30 minutes to do both.

If you passed the motor vehicle test for a car, and you know how to ride a bike, you can pass a written test. The only questions that would be different are the safety regulations and emergency questions.

I walked in, answered 15 questions in less than 5 min and left with a permit.  There might be some questions on law and penalties, those are tha hardest.  You shoould get 100%.  

You realy need to be retarded to fail.

I took the Motorcycle Safety Foundation's course, walked into the DVM with my card from said class, paid five bucks, and walked out with a class M endorsement.

I would reccomend for everyone who wants to start riding to take the MSF class.  There were several people in my class who had never touched a motorcycle before class and they were riding safely by the end of the course.

+1 the best way to start on a bike is to take the MSF course, some of the MSF course grads I know have crashed since riding, however, ALL of those riders I know that learned on their own or learned from a friend have crashed, usually w/ more severity and frequency

I bet the guys that take the course are more interested in riding safely to begin with, and that the ones that learn in a parking lot are just not as worried about keeping the rubber side down.  I think you choose which guy you're going to be when you decide how to learn to ride.

I'm pretty sure most of the questions are like this:

When should you wear a helmet?

A)  Every time you ride.
B)  Only when doing stunt riding that involves ramps and fire.
C)  Only when jerking off in your bathroom.
D)  You should never wear a helmet, as they can catch fire and explode, and are sometimes radioactive.

I absolutely reccomend this. its the best thing to get you started right as opposed to picking up a lot of bad habits or ending up on someones front bumper.

+100,  Here in Florida we have an organization called the Florida Saftey Council. It's the best $250 I ever spent.
