I have a motorcycle skills test at a North Carolina DMV to hopefully pass the skills portion of the requirements. I currently have a valid car drivers license. The motorcycle in question has a legal title and insurance required in NC.
Let's say given that
- I don't have a vehicle that can transport the motorcycle
- I don't have a friend with a motorcycle license who can transport it for me
I'm wondering how exactly I'm expected to get the motorcycle to the DMV for my skills test. I am a competent rider and would feel comfortable transporting myself to and from the DMV (mostly backroads).
Driving a motorcycle without a license is illegal. However without transportation resources, I'm wondering what's expected. Even if I take an MSF class (which I certainly will in addition to the DMV test)..I still have to actually get my bike to-and-from the course.
So, my option (other than somehow obtaining a vehicle to transport it) is to ride without a license to the DMV. While the DMV might not care/notice how I've gotten the motorcycle there, obviously getting pulled over would be bad and I'd likely fully be liable for any accidents. This would be doubly awkward in the event I fail the skills test, and clearly get on my motorcycle and drive home.
In this case, what is the "correct" way to handle this situation, and how detrimental would getting pulled over / ticketed be to obtaining a motorcycle license in the future?
