Need Info - Non Resident License
I just moved to Houston from Canada on a TN work visa. I have had a valid motorcycle license in Canada for 6 years and car license for 7.
I am going to be trading in my Canadian DL for an American one soon and I'm not sure of how the transition works.
I've been to the TxDPS website and I know that due to reciprocity I can obtain a valid car license (with proper identification) if I trade in my Canadian one. The question I can't seem to find an answer to is if my motorcycle license (Class 6) will be honoured as well?
Does anyone have any experience here? Do I need to re-do a MSF course or go through the whole noob process again (obtaining permit, test ect...)? Any information is appreciated!
Sorry if I posted this in the wrong thread! Feel free to move it!
Thanks in advance;

If we have reciprocity with Canada as you say we do, your motorcycle license should transfer over also.
HOWEVER, to make sure you get the most accurate information, I would suggest contacting the DPS License Issuance Bureau at 512-424-5089.
