Can a 17 y.o. operate a motorcycle with a driving permit in Texas?

I have a driving permit, but it will take me five months until I will be able to get a driving license.

I was wondering if restrictions for operating motorcycle are the same.

If yes, how long do I need to "practice" driving until I will be able to drive motorcyle alone?

    You'll need the Class "M" endorsement....that requires a passing a certified Motorcycle Safety Course. You have to show the certificate of MSC completion before the DPS will even hand you the written test.
