Question New Washington Drivers License has motorcycles as an endorsement/restriction?

Has anyone renewed their Washington Driver's License recently and seen the new way WA DOL is handling motorcycle endorsements?

On the old license, motorcycles is listed as an Endorsement, along with the accompanying 2-wheel and/or 3-wheel code.

On the new license, motorcycles is listed as an Endorsement, but DOL has moved the 2-wheel and 3-wheel to the Restrictions section.

It's my understanding that 2-wheel or 3-wheel motorcycle is an endorsement, so why would they list it as a restriction?

Here's a scan of my old and new WA DL:

I think it's pretty obvious, your not qualified to operate a one wheeled motorcycle.

It's just part of the continuing bureaucracy at DOL. Whether you are set up for only two wheel, only three wheel, or both, you are endorsed for motorcycles. The restriction block "clarifies" the types of motorcycles authorized.

Poke this link.
