Do you have to have your car license to get your motorcycle permit or license? I was driving my car the quarter mile to my friends house, i live out in the middle of no where, its all country roads and hillbillys and Ive seen kids younger than me driving. I only have my learners permit, and I passed a cop that knew me (small town, everyone knows everyone) and the asshole gave me a citation and now I have to go to court and I might not be able to get my license until Im 18. But I was planning on getting a bike in the spring. I know here you can be 15 and take the MSF course and get your permit...but what about your license?
