How To Get A Kansas Motorcycle License

Before you can start driving your motorcycle in the state of Kansas you're going to need to get the right endorsements. Before you get this endorsement you'll need to pass both a knowledge and on-cycle skills test. Other things you'll need are proof of residence, good marks on a vision screening, along with having a valid driver's license in Kansas. You also must be at least 17 years old to get this endorsement.

Learner's permits are available and only require passing the knowledge portion of the test. Individuals as young as 14 can get one of these permits, with a less restricted version being applicable to 16-year-olds. Those under 18 must have completed 50 hours of driving, ten at night, or have completed a motorcycle education course before applying for a motorcycle endorsement.

Kansas motorcycle safety courses are specialized courses that divide your time between learning in the class and testing your abilities on a motorcycle. In the classroom, you'll learn all the basics in how a motorcycle works and the proper way to ride one. Out of the class, you will practice the basics of moving, turning, braking, and much more. Once passed you'll be given a certificate of completion which can be turned into a DMV that lets you waive the testing and get your endorsement. These safety courses are all over the state, check out this list for one near you.

If you have just moved to Kansas and have a motorcycle endorsement from another state you have 90 days from establishing residency to have your license transferred. You'll need to provide proof of identity and Kansas residence, pass a vision test, pay fees and surrender your out of state license.
