Maryland Riders!!

im 17 and want to get a bike...i've raced moto-x (125 and 250cc) and am now thinking about buying a 600f4i(insurance is going to suck)...i just was wondering if anyone in md knows if you have to be 18 to get your "m" license...this is just a quick question...eventually im goin to go to the mva and get all the info.

thanks

no. But you will have to take the MSF class under 18.

nope

no you do not have to be 18 to get your license.

i took the motorcycle safety course @ the mdv in glen burnie.
it cost me 100 clams, but worth a lifetime of enjoyment.
im not sure what it costs now, but in 2000 it was 100 bucks.

you get your license form them you dont have to take the driving test.

you do a few things out on the parking lot, then take a writen test then thats it. its a 4 day course.

thurday 6-9
friday 6-9
sat & sun 8-4

thurs & friday is classroom
sat & sunday is out on the bikes.
they supply everything.

I wouldn't buy the bike until you have the class scheduled. The earliest date my girlfreind could get was September.

Good Luck.

If you are unable to "sign up" for a class, you may be able to get in earlier if you go on a Thursday night and tell them you would like to be on stand by. Some people sign up and then are unable to go on the date. Try it, I had like 4 spots when I took the class in 1999, of course it was only $50.00 then! hehehe

I need to get the wife signed up for the class too, she has been riding around without a license for awhile now. The only problem is her license is out of Penn. Anyone know if you can transfer a out of state license to a MD license without having to take a driving test or anyother crap?

I transferred mine from NY when I moved to MD 2 years ago (both regular and motorcycle). No tests are required as long as the current license is valid.

You can even surrender an expired license, as long as it is within 12 months of the expiration date. They took my 3-months-expired GA license and gave me a freshly minted MD one 10 minutes later.
Make SURE you tell the clerk to include all your endorsements. They almost didn't put my M on there. Of course, when they did, they charged me double. $#&*[email protected]!

You can get your "M" license without taking that class. You just have to go take the Learner's Written Exam, then in 14 days (i think, dont quote me on the amount of days) you go for the driven part of your test.
