It looks like South Carolina is now requiring a separate 3 wheeler certification if you’re going to be riding a trike or sidecar outfit. Previously a waiver was issued to allow 3 wheel operation, the waivers have been eliminated.
Anyone wanting to drive a three-wheeled motorcycle needs either a C Endorsement allowing them to drive all types of motorcycles, or a D Endorsement restricting them to just three-wheeled motorcycles.
With the rapidly growing 3 wheeler segment I hope there will be some agreement among the states about what sort of training is necessary for their new certification. With regular trikes, reverse trikes, tilting trikes and sidecars, the whole field will get crowded fast.
I wonder what happens to the thousands of current 3 wheeler owners. Will they be automatically certified or given a certain amount of time to get certified? I’m guessing the latter.
