The Kansas Division of Motor Vehicles closed a motorcycle test course after a sinkhole destroyed part of the course Saturday.
The course was at the Mission driver licensing office at 6507 Johnson Drive. The DMV will remain open for business, but motorcycles skills testing won't be available for two or three weeks, while the department creates and marks a new course.
The sinkhole swallowed the cab of a semi-truck parked in the area and opened after heavy rain.
A DMV spokesperson said motorcycle skills tests will still be available at the Leavenworth, Lawrence, Topeka, Olathe and Ottawa offices.
