What are the MA permit restrictions after I pass the motorcycle permit test? Massachusetts

Massachusetts Motorcycle Permit Restrictions

There are three primary motorcycle permit restrictions to keep in mind:

  1. No passengers permitted on your motorcycle.
  2. No motorcycle riding between sunset and sunrise.
  3. No motorcycle riding in states where you're not legally allowed to drive.
Of course, you also must follow the standard motorcycle safety laws that apply to everyone; namely, wear an approved helmet along with goggles, face shield, or glasses. You can skip the last part if your cycle has a windscreen or windshield.

Enrolling in Motorcycle Safety Courses

You don't have to take any formal motorcycle drivers ed course in order to gain or keep a motorcycle permit.

However, you will need to pass the road test portion of the motorcycle test to obtain your motorcycle license or the endorsement on your drivers license, and although taking a written practice test or two can help refresh your knowledge, completing a driver training course that's all about motorcycles is an even better way to prepare yourself for the driving test.
