The Michigan Senate has given final approval to a bill that says a motorcycle rider could not be eligible for more than two temporary instruction permits over a ten year period.

A loophole in the current law effectively allows a motorcycle operator to obtain a temporary permit each year without ever having to complete the mandated skills test required for endorsement from the Michigan Secretary of State.

The measure, which now goes to governor Rick Snyder for his expected signature, says an operator can only obtain two temporary permits before they have to get a full endorsement.

The bill will take effect January 1, 2015.
