Several motorcyclists don’t have legal license

AAA has recently reported that approximately 25 percent of motorcyclists do not have a proper license to operate a motorcycle. This is due to the bikers failing to take a basic rider course in order to have their license verified.

The rider course lasts three days long and consists of basic education regarding motorcycle safety. Before July of 2008, the three day course was not required to obtain a valid motorcycle license. The laws were updated that July and currently state that the basic rider course must be completed before a motorcyclist can legally operate a motorcycle.

The 25 percent of motorcyclists who have not passed this course are at a significantly greater risk to be involved in an accident, according to the study. The course costs between $200 and $400 and is highly regarded as producing better motorcyclists.
