Motorcycle Crash - Greenville Motorcycle Accident Attorney

While they are less common a sight as the weather gets colder, motorcycles are still on the road. It is important to remember that you should always keep an eye out on the road for people on bikes. After all, they don’t have quite as much protection against a collision as anyone driving in a car does. While there are pros and cons to riding a motorcycle, you should always make an informed decision about whether or not you want to ride. Getting on a bike is just as much of a responsibility as getting into a car is, so let’s talk about riding.

You probably know that to ride a motorcycle, you need a special license to operate a motorcycle in the state of North Carolina. To get the learners permit, you must have a full provisional, regular, or commercial driver license. You must also first pass a motorcycle knowledge test, a road sign identification test, and a vision test. If you are 16-18, you must also have parental permission and pass a motorcycle safety course. To get an endorsement to ride, you must pass a motorcycle knowledge test and an off-street motorcycle skills test. These extra requirements are because it is a very different experience between driving a car and riding a motorcycle.

While it takes extra testing to ride a motorcycle, driving with bikes on the road only takes a regular license. It is important for the person operating the motorcycle to know how to do so safely, but it is also important that the other drivers on the road keep their eyes open and actively pay attention to who they are sharing the road with. This is especially true if the driving conditions are less than ideal, such as nighttime or in inclement weather.
