DMV to Resume Rider Education and Testing
Vermont Department of Motor Vehicle’s Commissioner Wanda Minoli announced yesterday that automobile licensing and permit tests will resume, but motorcyclists will have to wait until the end of June or possibly July 1 before permit testing will be available.
On the positive side, the DMV Basic Rider course will resume on June 5th. According to the Department’s online registration page, the Basic Rider class is filled until the July 24th class. Registration for the 7/24 classes ends July 16 and the site is showing availability at most locations.
The DMV offers the Basic Rider course in Berlin, St. Johnsbury, Highgate, East Dorset, Pittsford, Colchester, and Dummerston. Classes this summer will run June to October.
A motorcycle permit is not required to take the Basic Rider class.
Riders who complete the Basic Rider class will earn their motorcycle endorsement.
The Experienced Rider class is being offered three times this summer, once in June, July and August.
Wilkins Harley Davidson is also offering a New Rider training class for people who want to learn to ride. No permit is required to take the class and you can earn your motorcycle license endorsement by taking the course.
The Wilkins New Rider class has openings beginning in August. The class is run through September.
