Ok, with license requirements in NYS; can I drive a spyder with ONLY a motorcycle license? I just got my motorcycle permit and with any luck I will have my license in a few months. I am curious about 3 wheelers but the DMV website is in comprehensible. To be clear I am residing in NYS, I have a NY motorcycle permit and intend to get my motorcycle license before I buy any kind of cycle, be it 2 or 3 wheeled. I do not now, nor have I ever held a class D license from NY or any other state. All the information about licenses is based on the presumption that everyone has a conventional drivers license, which is honestly infuriating.
