riding legally

i have to admit, never had an m endorsement until a few days ago. wasnt really a big deal back when i was riding about 5 years ago.

got back into riding recently and started talking with other riders and hearing about the m endorsement crack down where they are towing bikes or making you call a licensed rider to pick it up.

was enough to motivate me, got the brc class over with (awesome cycles) on a fri, sat, sun and took the test at the dmv following tuesday and passed easily.

overall it was really easy and i have to admit i should have done it a long time ago. i didnt expect much going into the brc but i actually did learn some stuff i didnt know.

for those that dont know, the 3 day class is now manditory so youll have to drop the money for that. they will not let you take the written/computer test at the dmv until you have taken the brc.

if you havent gotten it done, start saving up, and get it done!

He meant the BRC is mandatory. Some schools offer a 2 day, some offer a 3 day. We offer both, but either one works fine.

my bad im tired- but yeah like challen said, course is manditory.

i took a 3 day class because its one late night and 2 mornings, so keeps you out of the hot late afternoon weather a little more.

summer is ending so shouldnt be an issue in a few weeks.

they also offer the 2 day class.

whatever floats ur boat

Does a race licence count towards getting a M endorsement?

Like you I went a while without the M endorsement.....16 years to be exact. And like you, due to the crack down, decided to get it done.
