Any other PA riders get a letter from the DMV regarding licensing procedures? Basically it states that they realize you have a motorcycle registered in your name, and that you must be properly licensed....really. Instead of looking up my record to see that I actually did have a license, they sent me a letter. More taxpayer money wasted. Anyway, the main difference is that in order to now obtain a LEARNERS PERMIT, you must take a motorcycle knowledge test at a testing center. I guess more professional athletes need to do stupid $hit in order to change the way things are done to make motorcycling safer for the commoners. Moral of the story here, keep your eyes out for more changes, like a repeal of the no helmet law. If you are smart and wear a helmet that wont bother you much, but we are under the microscope. Maybe they will take my loud pipes next. Stay safe.
