Do you need a license to ride a Can-Am 3-wheel vehicle?

Regulations on 3-wheel motorcycle licenses vary by US state and Canadian province. A car license may be enough, but sometimes you need a 2-wheel motorcycle license or even a special certification for 3-wheel motorcycles.

 

Where can I drive a 3-wheeler on a regular driver's license?

When it comes to 3-wheel motorcycle licenses, every US state and Canadian province has its own regulations. In some states like California and New York, you can drive a three-wheeler on a car license. Check the requirements in your state right here.

 

Where do I need a motorcycle license to ride my 3-wheeler?

Other places require a full-blown motorcycle test to get a license. This includes US states with great open roads like Alaska, Georgia and New Mexico. All Canadian provinces require a motorcycle license, but restrictions vary. Find out your province’s laws before cranking the throttle.

 

What places require a special 3-wheel motorcycle license?

Good news! It's now even easier to hop on your Can-Am on-road vehicle because some US motor vehicle departments (i.e. Texas and Washington, Illinois, Florida) require a special 3-wheel motorcycle license certification. It’s faster to pass than for 2-wheelers and you’ll be hitting the open road in no time.
