I took the class at Tramas 3 weeks ago and still no completion certificate? How long ago did you take the class and what school? I am just getting a little anxious here.

I don’t know about NY but here in PA you can register and insure with a permit. I did it when I bought my bike. I know plenty of guys who don’t even have a motorcycle license or a permit and have their bikes registered and insured.May 20, 2009 at 12:59 pm #18732bigguybbrParticipant
Here in CT they just hand you your completion certificate right after you pass your riding test. You can take it and drive right over to the DMV and get your endorsement on your license (given that you have taken the written already for your permit)May 20, 2009 at 2:28 pm #18738roborabbitParticipant
If you pass the written / skills test they hand the cert to you at the end of the day and you just go over to the dmv pay the fee and get your new license.May 20, 2009 at 5:04 pm #18747l0stnycParticipant
I took the test in New York so they mail you the certificate. They say 6-8 weeks but I am hoping people got it earlier.May 21, 2009 at 7:24 am #18791gsmurfetteParticipant
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.May 24, 2009 at 2:20 am #18881KellisanthParticipant
In Chicago …
I registered my bike, and insured it (Progressive). Received my plates and city tag.
All I had was a permit at the time. 😮
The dealer never checked for the permit, nor did the Insurer ask for the Endorsement – or even if I took the MSF (or a Rider’s Course).
