How to get a California motorcycle license
As of March 6, 2015, anyone 21 years of age or older with a valid driver’s license, learner’s permit, or permit to operate a motor vehicle (MOV) from California is allowed to drive in the state.
But as of January 1, 2018, any person 18 years of Age or older can only drive in California with a motorcycle license.
The DMV is currently working to update its motorcycle registration form.
If you are unsure of your legal age to drive a motorcycle, contact a licensed California motorcycle instructor for more information.
If you’re an adult 18 years old or older, you are still able to drive and operate a motorcycle under the age of 21 with a current motorcycle license and learner permit.
The DMV has a special website to help people register their motorcycles.
In addition, there are a few online tools that will help you with your registration and driving privileges in California.
Visit DMV.gov to register your motorcycle or learn more about motorcycle registration.
The DMV is now requiring that all drivers of motorcycles registered in California undergo a safety training course.
The course includes information on vehicle stability, air bags, helmets, and other safety equipment.
