Motorcycle license for a 150cc bike in Jalisco

Post New Topic

Hello!

Do I need a motorcycle licence if I want to ride a 150cc bike in the state of Jalisco?

I'm kind of confused...getting different information on the topic!

For example this site of the government talks about a "new" licence for a motocycle with a motor greater than 250 cc.....but does that mean I don't nead any licence if I ride 250 cc's or less?

Thanks, any information is greatly appreciated!

In my area of Sonora the laws only apply to those the police choose to enforce it on. Regardless of the law it is ONLY about how it is enforced in your area. Look around and see who has their bike licensed. Cc's is one question and the other is color of skin. Here If you are white you'd better wear a helmet if Mexican no problem. The locals can't afford to pay a ticket anyway but the gringos can. It is that simple here.

In Jalisco, you need a motorcycle license for any bike over 49cc, although this is rarely enforced outside of the cities.

To get a motorcycle license, you'll need to take a 10 question test and a motorcyle riding test if you don't have a current valid license with a motorcycle endorsement.

BTW, 125cc is the most popular size where I live in Ajijic. Fine for lakeside but you would not want to take it on the 30 mile ride up to Guadalajara due to the hills and much faster traffic.

To me the best of both worlds would be a scooter. Suzuki Burgman is my choice. Very good quality, maybe the best. With a scooter having the 'step thru' frame it is very nimble and easy to control and the engine is below your butt and low to the ground. If you choose the 400cc or 650cc then you can keep up with any traffic going anywhere and easy to ride. Grandma can do it. Probably easier to ride than the 125 things (Korean built) you will find at your local grocery stores.
