Almost all motorcycle operators that were fatally injured knew how to operate their motorcycle. The following tables provide details for motorcycle operator license status and license compliance. Importantly, “No Motorcycle Endorsement” is not equivalent to “No Valid Motorcycle License.” Some examples, an operator who had a motorcycle endorsement but had been riding with their license suspended at the time of the crash, or an operator that was too young to have applied for a driver’s license.
