New Law Affects Those Seeking Motorcycle Learning Permits in Pennsylvania

Pennsylvania Motorcycle Accident Injury Lawyer

A new law effective this past winter affects anyone seeking a motorcycle learner’s permit in Pennsylvania. The law, under Act 126, limits the number of times that a person can reapply for a motorcycle learner’s permit during a five-year time period. An applicant may reapply three times or less during this time, to receive a total of four total permits within five years.

The new law does not allow PennDOT to renew an applicant’s learner’s permit. The objective of the legislation is to push the riders to obtain their real motorcycle driver’s license and to continue to learn to ride while they do so.

In Pennsylvania, the PA Motorcycle Safety Program (PAMSP) provides free safety courses relating to motorcycle riding to all state residents with a valid motorcycle learner’s permit or license to ride a motorcycle. The classes include instruction in the classroom and take place at a motorcycle riding range supervised by certified rider-coaches. You can find the courses at various PAMSP locations throughout the state.
