There could be a few changes coming to the motorcycle licensing program in Illinois. State officials are looking to add a third licensing category that would call for more specified training on bigger bikes. The riders also would be required to prove they could handle the bike when they go through their motorcycle safety class.
The idea is to cut back on motorcycle deaths, which have skyrocketed in recent years.
