Buster: How can I convince my parents to let me get a Motorcycle and a Motorcycle license?
Alright, I wanna hear some really good arguments for getting the license and the motorcycle itself. I’m 16. My brother, who is 28, drives a motorcycle. My dad has always wanted to get his motorcycle license too, so maybe something regarding that? Show me your lawyer-side.

You can only get your motorcycle license at 18 and your permit at 16 in most states. I have tried to ask my parents to let me get mine for like ever and they wont let me. When I am 18 I am getting my license though.
I’m 16 too and trying the same thing. Here in Missouri u can get a motorcycle license at 16. I’m saving up for a Honda CBR 600 RR. I like sport bikes. I want mine because I’ve always wanted to be on the road with a motorcycle and enjoying the freedom!Answer by Soundra

1. I’ve NEVER known a biker who “drive” a bike.
2. You’re 16. In “most” State, you can only get a permit to ride a bike and some may even restrict the size of the engine.
3. Some people always “dream” of getting a license and buying/owning/riding a bike. Difference is that most don’t. It takes a “special kind of people” to actually realize their dream.
4. The most important, in YOUR case, is to show that YOU’RE a responsible teenager to your parents(not just your father, for your mother will greatly influence your father’s in making the final decision).
By responsible, I don’t mean picking up your clothes off the floor. You MUST prove to your parents that you CAN BE trusted with anything!!!
5. Your brother is 28, an adult. He CAN decide for himself if he want a bike or not, YOU DON’T.
Bottom line is this: Teenagers are notorious for being “unreliable”, “irresponsible”, “reckless” and “disrespectful”…sure signs of disaster waiting to happen.
Those in itself is enough for many parents to say no. I’d rather have a live son walking around than a dead son who rode a bike.Answer by kj7gs
– Talk up motorcycle safety. Criticize motorcyclists who aren’t being safe.
– Make sure your folks know how cheap a motorcycle is compared to a car.
– Take the motorcycle safety course anyway. Pay for your dad to take it with you.
– Buy motorcycle magazines and leave them lying around the house.
– Start small, maybe a 49cc scooter for around the neighborhood. You don’t need a license for that. Dirt bike maybe? You do have a job I hope.
