You dont need a license to buy a ruck. You need one to ride it. You can get by with an m2 but will eventually need an m1 after the first year.

Some people may disagree but why even play with fire? If the cop pulls you over you don't have to sweat it with an m1.

1. An M1 license
2. Insurance
3. A boatload of dispensable income and time to spare for all the modifications you'll end up doing

yes your dumb
and how are you riding a ruck with no insurance, that means its not registered
and you realize if it has a license plate, and a registration sticker then it needs insurance


but of course you have no license or you would know for like 20 years or more insurance is the law on any motor vehicle


and most likely you will get towed away, and need proof of registration, and insurance before picking up
probably min of $400 tow fee


dont waste time getting a m2 get a real motorcycle license
M1

you can use the ruck to take the M1 on road test, dont let the dmv tell you that you cant because you can

I did it for years (in San diego). Doesn't mean I don't reccomend it. If you have it registered you need insurance or else they'll suspend the registration. You don't need a license to get insurance. It's 10$ A month for liability for me with geico (price before M1). If they catch you they can tow it.
The other option is getting your permit and taking a certified CA motorcycle safety course. After completing the course you get you license without taking the skills test.

If You have experience and feel confident in your riding ability take the written permit test and then the skills test(it is very easy on a stock ruckus). If this is the first motorbike you've ever owned you may consider the safety course, which is probably the best route either way.

Oh yea you can always just thug life it.

at least take the permit test
good for a year, no passengers and no night riding

believe it or not there are things you can learn when taking the test its different then the car test
last thing we need are more idiots thinking they can ride a street bike with no license, insurance, registration

if you cant take a few hours out of your life to get a permit then dont ride on public streets


oh and I have $13 a year liability on my scooters so its not very expensive to have insurance
of course probably depends on the value of it and how many years you have been riding for

Wow that actually helped me allot. I recenty registered my ruckus and didn't know I could get insrance without a moto license. I been riding motocycles in SD since a kid but I will have to pay 250$ for the course, I have a class b license and don't want to take that test again.

Thanks for the help.

you dont have to pay for any course unless you want to


just go into the dmv and take the permit test, or set an appoitment to take the permit test
costs like $25 I think
The dmv will have the book there you can get usually by the front doors

then once you pass the test later you will have to take the driving test I think you have to wait a few weeks not sure because they want you to practice some before taking the road test

I dont think they charge for that but its been forever since I got my license who knows



the only time you pay for a course is because its a private teacher and you do some schooling I think 2 weekends or something and then you ride there supplied bike for some on road test
and bypass the dmv testing all together
