Subject of Possible Rule Making: Creation of a new WAC to address criteria for issuance of motorcycle instructional permits and endorsements, for both two-wheel and three-wheel motorcycles. This new WAC will address the length of validity for motorcycle permit and endorsement tests.
Statutes Authorizing the Agency to Adopt Rules on this Subject: RCW 46.20.510.
Reasons Why Rules on this Subject may be Needed and What They Might Accomplish: Currently, issuance criteria are only written in the department of licensing internal policy and are not customer-facing in state law or rules. This rule making will codify the requirements for issuance of a two-wheel or three-wheel motorcycle permit or endorsement. It will also set the length of validity for each criteria.
Other Federal and State Agencies that Regulate this Subject and the Process Coordinating the Rule with These Agencies: Not applicable.
Process for Developing New Rule: Negotiated rule making.
Interested parties can participate in the decision to adopt the new rule and formulation of the proposed rule before publication by contacting Kelsey Stone, 1125 Washington Street S.E., Olympia, WA 98504, phone 360-902-0131, email, website
