How to Get a Motorcycle License: DMV Edition

When you set out to find ways to get a motorcycle license, you are likely going to hear two methods. One being the MSF Basic RiderCourse which offers on-cycle and classroom instruction from seasoned Rider Coaches, and the other process is to go about it the old-fashioned way at your local Department of Motor Vehicles.

We’re all about the motorcycle lifestyle. So, in celebration of the New Year, we are encouraging potential new motorcycle riders to follow their curiosity and get a motorcycle license. To help make the process a little less daunting, we make it a mission to provide beginner motorcycle rider tips and advice right here on the Brain Bucket Blog!

Check out this infographic that talks about some of the steps it takes to get a motorcycle license through the DMV. While some states have different laws from others, the steps needed to get a motorcycle license are to earn a learner’s permit, practice your skills on a motorcycle, pass an exam, and pay a fee. Be sure to do your research on the requirements set in place by your state, and give your local DMV a call if you have any questions or need more information!
