Motorcycle licenses are gaining in popularity; imagine yourself cruising down the sunny roadways of Arkansas and you, too, can appreciate why motorcycles are so popular. If you are at least 16 years old and have your parents permission (as a minor), you can apply for a motorcycle license.
Review the manual sections that deal with sharing the road and defensive driving; both good sources of information for you as a motorcycle driver.
On testing day, a licensed motorcycle driver must drive your bike to the testing site but if you study and practice you should be able to ride it home.
The Office of Driver Services encourages all new motorcycle drivers to take the safe riding course.
An important part of the safety course is teaching you about protective gear. You are required to wear goggles or a transparent face shield whenever you drive your motorcycle. All passengers must have foot and arm rests―it's the law.
Helmets are an excellent safety tool and a worthwhile investment. But in Arkansas, you are only required to wear one if you're 21 or younger. Check the laws in other states before you travel; most states require helmets.
Other drivers have difficulty seeing motorcycles because they are smaller than cars. Motorcycles also accelerate and stop differently than cars or trucks. Keep this in mind when you are sharing the road and try to be noticeable by wearing bright colors and using your lights.
