June 14, 2024

At Dewey, Ramsay & Hunt, P.A., our Charlotte motorcycle accident and injury attorneys know that an individual must have a motorcycle learner permit or a motorcycle endorsement on their provisional, regular, or commercial driver’s license to operate a motorcycle in North Carolina.

The North Carolina Division of Motor Vehicles’ Motorcyclists’ Handbook provides information applicants must know regarding safety and motorcycle operation.

Motorcycle Safety Course

Are All North Carolina Motorcyclists Required to Take a Rider Safety Course?

To apply for a motorcycle learner permit, riders must pass a motorcycle knowledge test, road sign identification test, and vision test. In North Carolina, it is not mandatory to complete a motorcycle safety course to obtain a North Carolina motorcycle license endorsement unless you are under the age of 18.

Individuals under 18 with a full provisional license must also have signed parental or guardian consent and complete a motorcycle safety course offered by the Motorcycle Safety Foundation or North Carolina Motorcycle Safety Education Program.

Whether you are a beginner or an experienced rider, a motorcycle safety course offers valuable training to make your riding experience safer and more enjoyable.

What are the Benefits of Taking a Motorcycle Safety Course in North Carolina?

While not mandatory for those over 18, attending a motorcycle safety course in North Carolina is a wise investment in your safety and riding skills. It enhances your ability to ride safely, helps you stay informed about the latest traffic laws, and provides financial benefits through insurance discounts.
