Exclamation Motorcycle License......

I'm not sure about this or not but I was wondering if you have to have a "motorcycle" license in order to legally ride a bike. If so then can ya'll tell me where I can get mine?

you have to have a license to ride legally. Take the MSF course(motorcycle safety foundation) then head to your local DPS office pass the written test and Voila you beez legal man. Well as long as you have at least some liability insurance.

i highly reccomend MSF! lol i took it at awesome cylces, they teach you on their bikes nd they are very skilled. if they dont think you can hack it they will ask you to leave. if you have never riden a dirtbike or motorcycle before i suggest riding a bicycle before the class to get you balence. thats what they told some of the guys anyways

MSF allowes you to skip the DPS driving test.. but i would take it if your new to riding.. just like when you took drivers ED in high school for your car

but if you go down to the DPS for your moto license then you will need to bring a bike, a car for the officer to RIDE in, so you will also need a driver for the officer and then you will have to ride your bike around, making sure to use your mirrors and stuff.

you also have to either trailer the bike up there or have someone with a M license ride it up there for you
