Thank you for taking the time to explain, as I mentioned we only have to do this once over here until you reach 70 (age, not mph ), unless your license is revoked on legal or medical grounds.It is not necessary to take this course to obtain your motorcycle license. To get my license without this course, I would have to take the written and riding exam all at the DMV (PITA). It will cost me more money to do it this way and I also wouldn’t have the added benefit of the safety course. As for the “legally “ part. Whom among us has never ridden a bike or driven a car without a license? I’m trying to be safe, legal and save cash. Sounds like a good idea to me. I don’t know how to post emojis or I’d post a smiley face so you’d know I wasn’t being pissy. Lol!
We do have police and privately sponsored 'advanced' motorcycling courses (at a price), which I believe are necessary for those wishing to become instructors, and whilst they may have a beneficial effect on insurance premiums (and rider safety, of course), for the rest of us they are entirely voluntary (unless somebody knows different?)
