    motorcycle license?

    you might still be able to get a class M license w/ the other being suspended since it's a seperate endorsement. I doubt it though...and you can't take the MSF w/o a class M learner's permit. Call the DMV and find out.

    if you are deemed by the state to be too inept to keep a class c license I sure as hell don't want you on a motorcycle.

    if you have a suspended license, it means all driving privileges are suspended, be it a C, M, A or B. That includes ALL endorsements etc.

    As for MSF, depends on the class. Call and ask. Most will let you take the course and if you pass you will have the certification that will allow you to get your M after your suspension is up. You might as well take it now and get it out of the way and learn from the class and then you are set for when you are legal again to drive.

    "Just one incident" and your license is suspended? Who are you trying to kid here?Grow up and wait for your license to be re-instated THEN take the MSF course and THEN buy a bike. If you can't drive a car, don't even think about buying a bike first unless you have some kind of death wish. :hsugh:

    You can take MSF without a class M learner's permit.

    To answer the question though suspended license equals suspended period for any class.

    Yeah, please don't ride a motorcycle. You've already shown you're too irresponsible to drive a car.

    Better yet, go get a bike right now, get drunk, and ride it into a power pole.

    Please don't. Insurance rates are already higher than they should be.

    Its scares me that some people think that if they can drive a car how hard could it be to ride a bike!! Even after ur license was suspended!

    Thinkin you should stick to something along the lines of pedal power retard

    Sounds like a death wish. You'll also more likely to drop your first bike.

    agree totally. when i took the msf course, it didn't matter if you have a M endorsement or not. a lot of people in my class had never even sat on a motorcycle. but i really have no clue if you are aloud to have a motorcycle license if your other license has been taken away.

    If you lose your driver's license you can't drive a motorcycle

    No driver's license = you can't drive anything with a license plate

    You can still take the class, but they won't give you an endorsment at the dmv until your license is restored.
