There is no specific “motorcycle license” in North Carolina. Instead, there are motorcycle learner’s permits and motorcycle endorsements.
To apply for a motorcycle learner’s permit, you must be at least 16 years old. If you are at least 16 but less than 18 years old, you must have a full provisional license from the DMV along with the signature of a parent or guardian. If you are 18 or older, you must have a standard driver’s license.
To apply for a motorcycle endorsement, you must have a full provisional or standard driver’s license, hold your learner’s permit for at least 12 months, and pass a series of relevant tests.
