Do you need a motorcycle license to ride a Honda PCX in the US?

Or can you ride it with a regular driver's license?

    Alabama was the last State to adopt a requirement for motorcycle endorsement, a 150cc qualifies as a motorcycle (rather than a scooter) in every State.

      Good answer, as the concept of "needing" a license to ride is very debatable. . Only Legally is not.

    If you mean to drive one YES, but to ride on back NO! Just be sure the driver has one!

    You can ride it with whatever you want. If you want to ride it legally you need a motorcycle endorsement of some kind

      Only Correct answer. You don't "need" a license at all. Just strongly encouraged by authorities. My daddy drove Model "T"s as soon as he could reach the pedals. I don't think a license even existed in his state until 1930.

    Any scooter with an engine size over 50cc is considered a motorcycle in every state. You need a motorcycle license to ride it on public streets and roads.

    Since the Honda PCX has a 150cc engine, it IS classified as a motorcycle, and you WILL need a motorcycle endorsement on your drivers license to ride it.

    Top speed on the bike is 67MPH or a highway speed. This is a motorcycle. You need a MB license to ride it. Mopeds are units that are UNDER 50CC and top speed is 28MPH...that gets the"just a driver's license" The motorcycle you also need to INSURE & plate. A moped just gets a plate...so is way cheaper as it is more like a bicycle in speed.

    Varies from state to state

    but in most states you probably need a motorcycle license.

    Some states have a license specific to (small engine) scooters and mopeds, and such a license might be needed for the PCX...but I doubt it.

    Some states have no license requirement for small-engine scooters and mopeds, but the PCX engine is almost certainly too large to qualify.
