  • Chapter 259 AN ACT REQUIRING ADEQUATE EDUCATION RELATIVE TO THE PROPER SAFETY AND OPERATION OF A MOTORCYCLE FOR MINORS.

Whereas, The deferred operation of this act would tend to defeat its purpose, which is to further regulate forthwith the safety of minors operating motorcycles, therefore it is hereby declared to be an emergency law, necessary for the immediate preservation of the public convenience.

Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives in General Court assembled, and by the authority of the same as follows:

Section 8 of chapter 90 of the General Laws, as appearing in the 2008 Official Edition, is hereby amended by inserting after the third paragraph the following paragraph:-

A minor under 18 years of age may be issued a motorcycle license or motorcycle endorsement if the minor: (i) meets the requirements for a junior operator’s license set forth in clauses (a) to (e), inclusive; and (ii) successfully completes a motorcycle basic rider course approved by the registrar and presents proof of such completion in such form as the registrar may require.

Approved, August 7, 2010.
