FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - Kentuckians wanting to get a motorcycle
operator's license will face a new rider skills test starting next
The Kentucky State Police Driver Testing Branch will start using
the new test on May 1.
State police say the new test was developed by the Motorcycle
Safety Foundation. It's designed to better determine if operators
possess sufficient safety skills for riding motorcycles in traffic.
The new test expands Kentucky's current motorcycle skill test
from two to four exercises. The exercises include left turn/normal
stop; cone weave/right turn from a stop; quick stop and obstacle
The changes apply to both two-wheel and three-wheel motorcycle
