How do you get a motorcycle license as a first license?

I’m asking for information on what steps are needed to get the permit then the transition to the motorcycle license. I am 18 and I have no drivers license, but I just want to get a motorcycle license.
I also forgot to add that I’m in NYS and please guys let me know like the transition as said earlier from first permit to license. Will a Driver License really be needed before getting a motorcycle? Will I have to get a junior license before hand?

    no such thing.

    the only sudo exception is a 15 year old permit to ride a 49cc or smaller motorcycle.

    It depends on your state, but every one I have lived in required a drivers license before getting a motorcycle endorsement. The way it usually works is you need to have a regular drivers license or permit, then take a written test to get your motorcycle permit (different photo ID) then, you come back and either have completed the MSF course, or take the skills test on your bike. If you pass, you get motorcycle ENDORSEMENT, not another license. From a safety standpoint, get your drivers license first. The rules of the road are generally not taught or tested on the motorcycle manual and examination. It is expected that you know them. In my experience, you need time in a car to be adequately prepared to handle a motorcycle on the road. There are things you learn to look for and react to that could save your life on a bike, they have for me. The best thing I can advise for you to do is spend a couple months behind the wheel of a car, sometime during that take the MSF course, (which requires a drivers license) and then worry about getting your license. Good luck and be safe!

    In Florida here, the M.S.F. Instructors tole me when I got my Endorsement to make Such and Such well sure that on my Drivers License it said “Motorcycle Also” and NOT “Motorcycle Only” – So in Florida you can get a Accidental Motorcycle Only License, but it is only an error on the DMV People.

    I can not imagine why you would not want a regular license? It doesn’t cost anything except the processing fee and the road test, and it allows you to drive a vehicle? If you don’t want to do the Book Learning for the regular license, you really will not like the book learning and studying you “SHOULD” Do to be able to ride without killing yourself. If you worried about the Road Test, in a car, then you really should not ride a Motorcycle!?!

    But to each their own, but the fells above me on the list are right, the M.S.F. “Motorcycle Safety Foundation” Does not teach typical rules of the road. The general premise is that you learn that from your regular license and don’t have to be taught it during the course. Instead they teach you how to ride safely and how to handle the bike without falling over.

    It depends entirely on which state you live in.
    Some states require a license to which you add an endorsement – others do not.
    Some states require a training course, others do not.
    Different states have different rules for their permits. Some are good for a year, mine was 30 days.

    Even within a state, the rules can get a little funky.
    Here, you can get a permit and then a license. No course required.
    To take the Beginner’s Riding Course at DMV, you must have a valid driver’s license.

    A lot of of the things you mention happens to be supprisingly accurate and that makes me ponder why I had not looked at this with this light before. This piece truly did switch the light on for me as far as this topic goes. But at this time there is one particular point I am not too comfy with so whilst I make an effort to reconcile that with the actual central theme of the point, let me observe exactly what the rest of the readers have to say.Nicely done.

    I have seen that car insurance corporations know the cars and trucks which are susceptible to accidents along with risks. Additionally , they know what type of cars are given to higher risk and also the higher risk they’ve already the higher a premium fee. Understanding the simple basics connected with car insurance will let you choose the right sort of insurance policy that may take care of your wants in case you get involved in an accident. Appreciate your sharing a ideas on the blog.

    Thanks a ton for your post. I would like to write my opinion that the expense of car insurance will vary from one plan to another, mainly because there are so many different facets which bring about the overall cost. By way of example, the model and make of the auto will have a massive bearing on the price. A reliable outdated family car will have a lower priced premium than a flashy sports car.
