do you need to have a regular licence to get a motorcycle licence?

You'll need a special license to ride a motorcycle. They call it a M1 here in California.

Not necessarily, you just have to be 16 to take the course to get the license... but the law is different in every state, so i would check with your state's dmv

"In addition to meeting the REQUIREMENTS NECESSARY to obtain a regular driver license, individuals who apply for a Class M must also meet other criteria."

The same ID requirements and drivers ed requirements depending on age.
But the way it reads, you do not need to get a regular drivers licence first.
