Cited for a Motorcycle Violation?
All motorcycle riders must pass the Basic Rider Course that is offered through the Florida Rider Trainer Program (Sunstate Motorcycle Training). Individuals who are riding a motorcycle without this endorsement are subject to various penalties. At Sunstate Motorcycle Training you can also obtain a motorcycle license/endorsement.
Florida Statute § 322.03(4) established the Basic Rider Course. If you are found violating this statute for riding a motorcycle without a license, you are guilty of a second-degree misdemeanor. The penalty for not having a motorcycle license could result in:
  • A $500 fine 
  • Up to six 6 months of probation; or 
  • Up to 60 days in jail. 
Penalties for not having valid motorcycle endorsement are different than a typical traffic violation that is issued by the police. When you do not have a valid motorcycle endorsement on your license, no opportunity is available to ride the bike home. Your motorcycle will typically be impounded by the police and you are then taken to the police station and issued a ticket.

We are here to make sure you are at your best performance on the road and at your safest at all time.


The primary goal of the Basic Rider Course is to provide an introduction to the fundamentals of safe, responsible motorcycling. This includes the knowledge and skills that lead to licensing and motorcycle operation on the streets and highway.
