Get a Motorcycle License: Get Compensation After a Motorcycle Accident Even If You Don’t Have a License

NYC Motorcycle Accident AttorneyA New York State resident must have a Class M or Class MJ driver license or learner permit to drive a motorcycle. To get a motorcycle license, you must first get a motorcycle learner permit.  To get a motorcycle learner permit, you must first apply at a DMV office. There you will need to take a written test. The test is easy to prepare for. You can get the New York State Motorcycle Operator’s Manual online. Usually reading the manual a couple of times is enough to pass your written test.  You will also need documents and proofs of identification.

Next, you have to prepare for the motorcycle road test.  You should have the ability to make a quick stop, make a figure eight, and feel comfortable riding in traffic.  You must be supervised by a driver age 21 or older who has a valid motorcycle license from any state. The motorcycle driver who supervises you must be within 1/4 mile of you at all times. Next, you are ready to schedule your road test.  

If you are involved in a motorcycle accident and do not have a license or permit, you still may be entitled to full compensation for your injuries.  We have been successful many times in proving that although our client did not have the proper paperwork to ride a motorcycle, the rider did have adequate skills and the accident was not the riders fault.  If at any time you are involved in an accident and don’t have a license, contact a skilled and experienced motorcycle accident attorney. They can advise you of your legal rights after a motorcycle accident.
