North Carolina requires that all motorcycle riders have the “M” endorsement on their driver’s license. This requires a written exam and successfully completing an obstacle course on a motorcycle at your local driver’s license office. Since it is illegal to ride a motorcycle without the endorsement new riders must transport a motorcycle to the examiner to complete the obstacle course, or get a learner’s permit. After successfully completing the Motorcycle Riders Course, you can present your course completion card to the license examiner and you will only be required to complete a written exam.
