Training and Motorcycle Endorsement RequiredMotorcycle License Dilemma
OK, Come home and retake the course in Louisiana
Hey Louisiana, I am stationed in California, bought a bike and need my endorsement on my LA license.
Too bad. For Louisiana you have to take OUR course.
I can’t. Have to deploy in 4 weeks. I took the BRC on base though.
I guess I’ll have to change my license to California…
Riders “Under the Radar”- Over-Represented in Crashes- No Training Opportunities- No Riding Mentorship- Risk Disciplinary Action- Risk Local Traffic Violations- Promote attitude of Non-Compliance
If I can’t get endorsement I won’t be allowed to ride – I guess I better not tell my Sergeant that I have a bike
