Example: Texas has no classes of motorcycle license. Picture of bike and MSF certificate got me my class 2.
Similar here, I didn't even need a picture of a bike. I showed them the 'M1' on my California license and just said "That means any bike". They gave me class 2, 2a, and 2b.
I am due for the BTT on the 23rd at Woodlands. I ride a 250cc motorcycle back home and have been riding for 10 years now. My licence does not mention any category, I am allowed to ride a motorcycle of any capacity that is sold legally in my country, as per the issuing authority. Would be great if you could provide inputs on the following -
If you are allowed to ride a bike of any capacity, you should obtain documentation to that effect to prove up that you are licensed for unlimited bikes. There is an exception to this: If you come from a country where the bike license was issued automatically with your car license (ie, no test), you won't be granted a bike license.
1) Will I be issued a 2A category licence if I provide proof of ownership of my vehicle, like the Registration Certificate/Insurance?
Probably - but why do that when you can get a class 2 unlimited. If you go the route you propose and wanted something bigger than 400 cc, you'd have to do bike school... and from what I know, you'd fail miserably, not having done the 2b and 2a training.
2) I am not carrying the licence on me currently but I will have it by next month. Can I give the BTT on the 23rd July as per schedule, and then, post clearing the test, have my licence converted on a later date?
Thanks in advance!
I've not seen this done but I don't know why you couldn't delay. BTT tests are done on a computer at a driving center. Within 5 minutes of the end of the test, you get your pass/fail slip. Most people walk immediately over to the SPF booth and proceed with next steps in licensing.
Note that unlimited class is not necessarily granted automatically. Also, your license must show that you've been riding for at least a year. If not, you'll need to provide additional information, for example, I had to provide a driving history to show that I'd been on a bike for a long time.
Without knowing what their criteria are, I'd say if you are older, had a bike license for some time, and can demonstrate some training, you'll get an unlimited with no issue. OTOH, if you're 18, 6 months experience, and just bought a liter bike... hmmmm.
