    Im above 18 and just curious if there was a way to do it without practical test or motorcycle class. I thought at one time if you were over 18 and had drivers license you could just take written test and eye test but cant remember.

    That was a long time ago. Gotta do the class, unfortunately...

    It's been a long time, but I had to take a written and driving test. No class involved but it really is a good idea to take it.

    Many riding classes count in exchange for the driving part of the test and only the written is needed at a DMV office.

    Successful completion of an MSF course waives the riding and written exam. Lots of fun, even in the pouring rain! lol

    Or you can do both at the DMV.

    I'm just not for sure because I've been riding since I threw my bicycle down at the age of nine. I'm 61 now and still riding a Harley Davidson Heritage Classic. When they started that stuff I went down at the police station across I240 at about Penn there coming off of I44. I think it's the Highway Patrol Station but can't remember. The lawman asked me how long I'd been riding, when he found out he signed the paper and told me to go get a new license. So I guess I was grandfathered in. Of course I did come riding up on a new Harely Davidson Road King as he was walking in the front door. True story.

    Take the written and the riding exam. They put a radio in your helmet and just follow you. Took half an hour for both.

    When I went to get mine, fully expecting a test, they asked me if I had any experience riding and I said yes, couple years and I was done.

    When the powers that be decided to pass that "endorsement' (in reality, just another revenue enhancement), if one could prove at least one year prior experience, one could get the endorsement grandfathered.

    That was what, thirty years ago ?

    I went in with ten years of back motorcycle registrations, and they stamped the paperwork.

    I have no idea how they do it now.
