The state House of Representatives has unanimously passed legislation to toughen penalties for driving a motorcycle without the proper license.

House Bill 384 would increase the fine from $25 to $200, plus fees and surcharges.

The bill’s sponsor, Rep. Josh Kail (R-Beaver/Washington), said Pennsylvania has experienced large numbers of riders operating motorcycles and other vehicles without the proper license. He said that poses a danger to both the driver and other motorists and pedestrians.

Kail said his legislation would bring the penalty more in line with the seriousness of the violation.
