Military personnel licensed in North Carolina but stationed outside the state can add or renew a motorcycle endorsement if they have a photo on file that was issued within the last eight years.
In addition to completing a motorcycle endorsement application, they must submit to the N.C. Division of Motor Vehicles a copy of their:
- Valid North Carolina driver license
- Military ID card
- Motorcycle Safety Foundation card (both front and back) along with written verification of its authenticity from a military safety officer on letterhead.
If the written examination and skills test are unavailable, NCDMV may accept a Motorcycle Rider Card. Written verification of its authenticity from a military safety officer on letterhead is required.
Documents can be submitted via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or fax to (919) 861-3393.
Note: Renewing a North Carolina driver license or ID card will cancel any licenses or ID cards from other states through the State-to-State Verification program.
