Haha, everbody is talking about how easy it is. I had to take the test like 3 times before I passed. The good thing about that though is that they let you take it over and over until you pass it. Now all i have to do is get the driving part done. Somebody told me that I shouldn't go to the DPS because I can't touch the ground on both sides....right or wrong? I already have a bike and have been riding for almost a year now because I have a permit that allows me to ride with others that have their liscense. I just need to take the MSF course so I can ride on their bikes and pass the driving part.

That's right. At a stop sign or light, both feet must be on the ground to be considered a full, complete stop.

And yes, you should take the MSF course. Not only should it bypass the DPS driving test, but you'll probably be amazed at what all you'll learn during the class (I was, even after riding for 15 years).

I wouldn't have a problem passing it except for the fact that I am vertically challenged! Haha! My 6ooRR is lowered three inches and is pretty much slammed to the ground but I still can't touch on both sides.

Challen, where are you an instructor at? I will definately need those week day classes. Thanks!!!!
