thats pretty cool. i hope thats the case in co.Up here in mass, you take a multiple choice test for the permit, then your off riding alone or with people and can do what ever you want...just no passengers or night riding, till your licensed.
I got my license in Lousiana...there they don't have ANY cycle permit system at all. You had to show up, take the written, and take a practical without every having had permission to ride legally on the street. Catch 22...backwards state.
i have to have the permit for a year and i've got bout 4 months left but now that summers here its time to ride!!! and by the time i actually ge the license it'll be starting to snow againSo get your license and you don't have to worry about it.
well from what i understand the idea behind the permit is that u hav to hav someone older ride w/ u to "supervise" which is just a pain to arrange last min. but when i got my permit at the dmv they were running around the place trying to find a book that said what the law was aand they came back with "a msf course instructor must be within 5-8 feet of the person w/ the permit while riding" and that makes absolutely no sense.Man, showing my age here, but I got my moto-license in 1994 while stationed in NC and they didn't have learners permits back then. I dunno how you're suppose to learn if you can't ride. Then they expect you to some how show up at DMV and take the riding test....wack!
This made me laugh--out loud if it matters.oh btw most cops dont really know how the cycle endorsement thing works. In michigan if you have a temporary endorsement meaning you just took the written test but never took a road test you can just show that with your license and they wont know any better. They will most likely think you just havent gotten your replacement license with the endorsement on it so the dmv just printed you out a temp like they would a normal license. But the rules here is if you only have a temp you can only ride in the sight of someone with a cycle endorsement and you can not ride at night or with a passenger until you get your endorsement, thankfully most cops arent as familiar with those laws as they should be. Hope this helps
