Do you Need a Motorcycle License for an Autocycle in Florida?

Florida 3 Wheel Motorcycle License Test
In order to get a trike motorcycle license, you’ll need to complete a rider education course.
If you complete an approved motorcycle training course, you will waive your testing requirements with the FLHSMV.
A 3-wheel basic rider course will add an S restriction to your license, which limits you to riding 3-wheel motorcycles only.
Prepare for your DMV tests with our Florida motorcycle permit practice test.
Be sure to refer to your state’s motorcycle operator handbook and the 3-wheel motorcycle supplement from MSF.
