Legislation sponsored by state Rep. Seth Grove, R-Dover Township, to change the state’s system for motorcycle learner’s permit renewals was approved by the state House of Representatives on Tuesday.
House Bill 892 would limit the number of times an individual could apply for a motorcycle learner’s permit to three times in a five-year period, according to a news release. It would also prohibit the renewal of motorcycle learner’s permits.
The Alliance of Bikers Aimed Toward Education supports the legislation, according to the release.
“It is important for the safety of motorcycle riders and other drivers that we have qualified operators on our roadways,” Grove said in the news release. “My legislation is about ensuring that motorcycle learner’s permits are not a revolving door, but rather a period during which new riders can learn how to safely operate a motorcycle.”
The legislation moves to the state Senate for consideration.
