OUT-OF-STATE LICENSE HOLDERS

If you hold a valid out-of-state driver's license and you complete the Virginia Rider Training Program, you will NOT be eligible for a Virginia motorcycle-only license. Virginia law prohibits you from holding both your out-of-state license and any type of Virginia license. However, you may be able to exchange your out-of-state driver's license for a Virginia license and obtain the appropriate Class "M", "M2"', or "M3" designation.

If you hold a valid out-of-state driver's license and possess an out of state motorcycle safety course certificate but do not have a motorcycle class designation on your license, you are NOT eligible for a Virginia Class "M", "M2"', or "M3" designation. Virginia does not accept out of state motorcycle safety course certificates. To receive a Class "M", "M2"', or "M3" designation, you must pass the motorcycle knowledge and road skills tests and hold a motorcycle learner's permit for 30 days. If you are under 18, you must hold a motorcycle learner's permit for 9 months.
