M license fee?

Anyone know what the cost of getting a motorcycle license is? I've been here: http://www.txdps.state.tx.us/adminis...rol/dlfees.htm but am still not quite clear on which applies to me.

I'll be (hopefully) taking the brc msf course at Awesome Cycles this weekend. I had to skimp and scrounge to get the dollars for the msf, and will be running pretty low after I pay for it. I just want to make sure I have enough before I head to the DPS.

Thanks!

so have you afforded gear?

and if you "can't" afford gear, think when are you most likely to crash and need gear, as a new rider or experienced.

gear is cheap compared to skin.

He's already taken into account the cost of the course.

Yeah, that's one of the reasons I'm running low MSF + padded jacket + a* gloves + helmet + boots(not moto specific). Your posts are the main reason I waited until I got proper gear and msf before I take the bike further than around the block. So, I guess I have you to thank for me being broke.. but safe

Registered for the msf at Awesome Cycles this weekend. Saved enough with the MH discount that getting the license shouldn't be a problem.

Thanks
