Find Out How You Can Get A Colorado Motorcycle License

By Cathy Mercer

A Colorado motorcycle license is a necessity for anyone who wishes to ride a motorbike in the state. It is a well known fact that Colorado has some of the greatest biking terrains in the country. However, only those who have a motorbike endorsement on their driving license can enjoy this great adventure. That is just the law, so residents, and visitors alike, must follow it.

The state of Colorado used to issue motorcycle-only licenses some time back. However, this is no longer the case. Currently residents need to first get a regular motor vehicle driving license, then get an endorsement from the Directorate of Motor Vehicles to ride motorbikes within state boundaries.

You can only apply for a motorbike permit if you are a legal resident of Colorado and have attained the legal age for driving. Proof of identity will also be required before your application can be accepted by the DMV. Applicants must pay the prescribed endorsement fee when applying for the permit. If you are under 18 years of age, you may need to satisfy additional requirements before you get your permit.

Applicants who are over 21 years old generally have two options as far as getting the endorsement is concerned. They can either present their MSF (Motorcycle Safety Foundation) certificate to the DMV, or do a driving test at the local DMV office. Some third party testers are authorized to administer driving tests. Whatever the case, an additional two dollars must accompany the application.

Applicants who are aged between 16 and 17 years must have had an instruction permit for at least 12 months in order to be eligible for a class M endorsement. They are further required to provide evidence that they have completed the MOST program. When visiting the DMV office for the driving test, these applicants are required to have a motorbike that is insured and duly registered with the DMV.

Before an endorsement can be given, the driving record of the applicant must be reviewed. New applicants who are over 18 years old also need to pass the physical aptitude test as well as the vision test. If everything is in order, a class M endorsement will be issued by the Colorado DMV.

Prior to making your visit to the DMV, you need to prepare yourself well. The best way to do this is to read the Motorcycle Operator Handbook. You may also want to take a practice test before you go to the local DMV office. This will give you a good idea on what to expect.

In order to ride on the plains of Colorado, you will need to have a valid Colorado motorcycle license. There is a popular myth that getting this permit is a daunting task. The truth is that it is actually a very simple process, especially for those who know what they are doing. If you know the right procedure for getting the endorsement, things will be very easy for you. Consider using online resources to get additional information on the process of getting this permit.
