I got my Motorcycle's drivers license at 16 years old. I learned on a Honda CB 350. The exam took exactly 3 minutes tops. A freezing January, temperatures below 32F, the inspector keen on testing candidates in heated cars. I was the sole aspiring motorcyclist that day. He asked me to go up the street, changing gears, make a U turn without putting my foot on the ground, come back gear down and stop at his level. That was it. I was legally entitled to purchase a Kawasaki H2, or a Honda CB 750! sorry; back then, the Moto Guzzi California was not on my list... Since then, things have changed though... You need to be 18, and the driving skills inspection requires that you really learn to manage your bike. And because it is a points system, it is very easy to fail. Note that I was skilled enough to have done a lot more if the inspector had wanted me to. I guess that if the exam at taken place in summer, it would have been different. Anyways, I also own a License from Texas to drive cars and motorcycles, and incidentally serves as legal proof of identification. For those of you from Europe, a driver's license is usually not a proof of identity. In the USA, it is. Is it difficult to get your Motorcycle Driver's License in Texas? I have no clue. I am a citizen of the three foreign countries that do not require a test to get their license in Texas. One of them Canada, the other two European. Pop Quiz: Without looking, can you guess which two European countries can get a car and/or motorcycle driver's license by simply showing their foreign ones? So, tell me: -How easy/difficult is it to get your Motorcycle's drivers' license in your country/state?
