Driver License Requirement

The New York State Department of Motor Vehicles (NYS DMV) requires that all students possess a car Driver License in order to take the Basic RiderCourse or BRC2- License Wavier Course.

NO DRIVERS LICENSE
If you are planning to get a Driver’s License, MSS recommends securing that endorsement first. After you possess a Driver’s License, then, come to our course to learn how to ride a motorcycle and test for the DMV Road Test Waiver. The fast track to get your motorcycle license!

If you never plan to secure a Driver’s License, you can learn how to ride a motorcycle with private lessons at Motorcycle Safety School, and then take the DMV Motorcycle Road Test. It is required to take either a five-hour pre-licensing course or a driver education course before you can make the DMV motorcycle road test appointment.

OUT-OF-STATE 
Students who possess a car driver’s license from outside of New York State are welcome to take our Basic RiderCourse for educational purposes. However, the student is responsible to confirm the state that issued the driver license will accept the New York State waiver card. Motorcycle Safety School is only providing the motorcycle education. Out-of-State Licenses are not valid for the Basic RiderCourse 2 – License Waiver.

INTERNATIONAL DRIVER LICENSE

If you possess an international driver license, you are able to learn how to ride a motorcycle in our Basic RiderCourse. However, the NYS DMV will not provide an M endorsement unless you have a New York State Driver’s License! Motorcycle Safety School is only providing the motorcycle education. International Licenses are not valid for the Basic RiderCourse 2 – License Waiver.

JUNIOR OPERATOR DRIVER LICENSE
All students must be age 18 and older to take courses or lessons.
