Getting the license

Welcome to my blog!

Here, you will be reading about my experiences I have had riding on the streets, and the challenges I encounter on a daily basis. 

To start off, this is a little introduction about me, my name is Mark Schwarcz and I ride a Honda CBR 300R as my main method of transportation, my passion for motorcycles came about 2 months ago, and since then, I've had ups and downs.

My first topic is going to be about getting the motorcycle endorsement. A two-day course for people with no experience at all. At the beginning I said to myself: How can someone learn to ride a motorcycle in just two days. However, on the first day of the class, as the hours passed I realized that it was the easiest thing for someone with bicycle experience. The first day passed, and I nailed it.

On the second day, it was pouring; the visibility was terrible, and the floor was slippery. Conditions that are expected for a normal day in Florida. Techniques like swerving, hard stopping, and even going thought obstacles were taught, and once again, super easy for me.

When getting a motorcycle license, a person must pass two rigorous tests; a riding one, which the moderators observe one`s riding skills, and a written test, which is about safety, riding gear, and riding techniques. 

After I received my scores of 100% on both tests, I went to the DMV on the following day to renew my driver’s license.


  1. Very touching, and the fact that you passed through all those obstacles with no problem and getting a 100% on both tests it gives me hope and surpassing faith about humanity.

  2. You being able to learn so quickly means you were born to ride. By the way your bike looks sick.
