Question: What type of license endorsement would I need to operate the new Can-Am Spyder three wheel motorcycle/vehicle in Minn.?

Answer: They are classified as a motorcycle in Minn. and you must have a standard driver’s license with either a motorcycle instruction permit, a motorcycle endorsement, or “also valid for 3 wheel motorcycle” under restrictions.

You will need to take and pass the three wheel motorcycle road test at a DVS testing facility with a three wheel motorcycle. DVS recommends letting them know the type of bike that you will be using for the road test when you make an appointment. 

Motorcycle means every motor vehicle having a seat or saddle for the use of the rider and designed to travel on not more than three wheels in contact with the ground, including motor scooters.

All motorcycle operators must:

• Have a motorcycle instruction permit or endorsement.

• Register their motorcycle and display a valid license plate.

• Carry liability insurance.

Carry proof of insurance when riding.

• Wear eye protection: face shield, goggles, or glasses.

If you have any questions concerning traffic related laws or issues in Minn., send your questions to Sgt. Troy Christianson – Minn. State Patrol at 2900 48th Street NW, Rochester, Minn. 55901-5848. (Or reach him at Troy.Christianson@state.mn.us) Twitter: MSPPIO_SOUTH
