Default Can I get Permit at 17 and License 2 weeks later at 18?

Hey everyone,

I'm currently 17, but I turn 18 in about 2 weeks. I got my first bike today, and I'm going down to get my permit tommorow. I know, if your under 18, you have to have your permit for 6 months before you can get your license. I also know that if you don't have a permit, you can go at 18 to get the license directly. However, if I get my permit at 17, and 2 weeks later go to get my license because I'll be 18, will I? Or will I have to hvae the permit for 6 months?

Thanks.

I assume you mean bike permit and license endorsement, yes? I think you should be OK with your plan, but ask at the DMV when you get your permit. You know you'll need parent's permission for the permit until 18, right?

That makes sense even at your age if you walked in with an MSF certificate. Written test + MSF = license. Believe it or not, sometimes the DMV does try to do things efficiently.

Congrats!!

Ride safe and have fun.

In CA if you're under 21 you legally have to pass the MSF course before getting your license, over 21 it's optional.

I'm on my permit right now only because the rider courses are so booked up, I gotta wait a month.
