Re: Indiana Riders???

From Evansville here. Call your license branch. I think you can just take a riding test with them on their course. If you go through ABATE, you test on a 250 Honda Rebel, which is light and a little more agile. Plus if you drop it, you don't screw up your own bike. If you do it through the BMV, you test on your bike. Give them a call just to verify this. If you make it down to Southern Indiana, PM me and mabey we can set up a ride. Good luck!

Hi from Evansville too You can go to the BVM get a biginners permit and after I think 30 days you can take the practical riders test.If you pass you will get your license. I think the biginers permit is good for one year but can't remember for sure.Abate does all the testing in Indiana.

Re: Indiana Riders???

Bmv will have/know schedule and location of test. 20 yrs ago it was every other weekend, but starting in April I believe.

Re: Indiana Riders???

If you go to the Indiana BMV web site it will link you to ABATE course and test schedules and locations. Test is $10 to take. Course is like $75 if your not an ABATE member...... No expert here but I just researched all this info myself trying to get my endorsement back. Did the stupidest thing 7 years ago and didn't keep my endorsement when I had it. :banghead:
