I am an AK resident living in WA state right now, and they don’t know that I have a permit from AK down here. I went to today and registered my bike. It says on my registration that it is illegal to ride a bike without an endorsement, and if you don’t have one, to contact the DMV. I thought that was kind of funny. Guess they have to cover their butts.
I got an insurance quote and answered the questions for after I take my test this week. I live on a private road, and won’t leave it until I get my insurance. You can get insurance w/ a permit in WA and AK. Otherwise, how would you ever get to learn? What would be the point of a permit? JMO.
