im in the army currently stationed in Arizona, and it sucks getting around town without any reliable transportation. i never had a vehicle before, never could afford it.i have about 3500 saved up now and i have my eyes on this 3200 priced bike but its used and its owner is selling it. i dont have a drivers license either, i plan getting that next month on vacation so i can at least get my permit and then get get my license a few weeks after so by then i should have a least 5000 saved up. i want to know what steps i have to take to actually ride this bike legally? do i need a drivers license plus a bike license too? my base offer bike courses for free here so i will learn how to ride soo. thanks in advance
You can buy a motorcycle anytime. You cannot ride legally without a driver’s license with a motorcycle endorsement. http://www.txdps.state.tx.us/DriverLicense/ApplyforLicense.htm
Looks like if you can pass the test you can have your license the same day you apply.
Texas is a cool State! You can get your get your motorcycle endorsement by mail! http://www.txdps.state.tx.us/DriverLicense/motorcycleLicense.htm Once you have your license, take the bike course and send the certificate and they will send you a new license with your motorcycle endorsement.
