The Course is Required to Get a Motorcycle License
When you register any motor vehicle in Texas, you must have a driver’s license and proper insurance. However, in order to get a motorcycle license in Texas, you are required to take the state approved Course for Motorcycle Safety. So, in the long run, the answer to the question is yes.
Learning to Ride Before You Get Your License
If you are still under the age of 18 and have never earned your Class B license, you can take the Basic Course with only your learner’s permit. After the completion of the Course, you will be eligible to get your Class M motorcycle license, which will allow you to register and insure your motorcycle.
Advanced Courses for Experienced Riders
If you are over the age of 18 and have a current Class B Texas license, you are eligible to take the Intermediate Course. You will bring your own bike and helmet and at the end of the course, you will be eligible for your motorcycle license. The Intermediate Course lasts one day. If you have a Class M license and simply want to improve your riding skills, there is an Advanced Course available.
