I recommend the weekend course. 2 or 3 days, $195 total, and the instructors are fun!

Depends on the area of town you're in. I went to the Spring Branch ISD Motorcycle safety course.

http://communityed.springbranchisd.com/begmotor.htm

It was like $ 195 for Sat and Sun course. Super easy and the instructor is really chill and laid back.

All you need to bring is Gloves, Jacket and wear boots and jeans. They have helmets but you can bring your own.

If my 2 cents means anything, I'd tell ya to go to Awesome as well.. They are for a lack of a better word... Awesome.. And them bastad been had me sayin Awesome since I left there.. DAMNIT!!! haha... They were great.. Have a friend that had at the time never rode a bike.. Up to a week or two before that she hadn't even been a passenger on a bike. They helped her a LOT. I rode for almost 10 years and because I let my endorsement laps some years ago of course I had to take the course too and they taught me a lot as well. And for the things they didn't teach me, they made me understand why it was done that way. (Yea, my dad just put me on a bike and told me how to drive it. Walked inside the house as he warned me not to crash).

Well with both of the schools listed above check their sites.. They'll tell ya.

http://www.awesomecycles.com/brc_curriculum.cfm for awesome. (requirements should be the same since it's a state regulated course) But you'd have to check out the schools to have seen that.

Yes, you can take the BRC as long as you already have your permit. Bring it with you to your first day of class.

For registration, you'll need money.

For the beginning of class, you'll need 3 waivers signed by one of your parents. You can print them off our website and bring them with you if you want.

PS
Every bit of this info is on our website.

Not really. It depends more on what you want out of the experience. While the curriculum "may" be the same at all schools; how it's given, the type of people that give it, what materials are used, facilities, etc. are all different between the schools.

Probably why the majority of dealerships in the Houston area recommend us over the others.
