List of docs needed for M license?

Howdy, y'all,

I've been lurking for a while, but just registered as I completed the MSF course at Awesome Cycles this past weekend (Debbie rocks!) and I'm off to the 290/Dacoma office this afternoon to get the paper test done and make it official.

Here's my question: I have a valid TDL with less than 2 years 'til expiration, a SS card, Ins card (for car), and cash. Do I need a passport/birth cert? Do I need a registration receipt for the car? I don't own a bike yet, so no worries there.

Thanks in advance, friends. See you on the roads soon!

Happy Fourth of July in advance.

Right on, Tex - I forgot to mention I've got that in hand, too. Good catch!

Thank you, Bevo. I read that but still had the questions I listed above.

Specifically:


10.Provide a vehicle for the driving exam and present current liability insurance, Texas vehicle registration, and inspection for the vehicle.

Okay. Define "the vehicle."

And:

To verify US Citizenship or lawful permanent residence, the applicant must present one of the following:
Certificate of Birth issued by appropriate U.S. State, Territory, or District of Columbia;
Department of State Certification of birth issued to U.S. Citizens born abroad (Form FS-240, DS-1350, or FS-545);
Certificate of U.S. Citizenship (Form N-560, N-561, N-645);
U.S. Dept. of Justice –INS U.S. Citizenship Identification Card (Form I-197)
U.S. Dept. of Justice – INS Identification Card for Resident Citizen of the U.S. (Form I-179)
U.S. Passport
Valid Permanent Resident Card (Form I-551); or
Passport or I-94 stamped "Approved I-551";
Passport or I-94 stamped "Processed for I-551"
or
Permit to Re-enter (Form I-327).


Since I already possess a valid Texas Driver License, I've satifisfied this requirement, have I not? I get it if the M license is the first and only license I'd have, but it's not. Dig?

Thanks for the link. I'd really like it if you'd be kind enough to answer my question, though, since the TxDPS site is vague and ambiguous.

Since you already have a valid TDL, that is your ID

The MSF certificate satisfies the driving portion, all you have to do is pass the written test and eye exam.

I'm hoping the afternoon before a three-day weekend will have most of my fellow Houstonians doing something more interesting than standing in line. I'll let you know how that lame-brained theory works out!

and then...... hopefully they will give you the correct test. I went in for my M and I was given the Class C test. I do that test, pass, and I ask if that was the correct test and had to go back and take the Class M test. Took 2 tests!

You should call ahead and see if they take appointments. I've heard some offices do... of course I heard this as a response to my complaining about how long it took at the DPS, so I haven't yet experienced it for myself.

The vehicle would be the motorcycle but since you've already taken msf you just need the written test.

I was at the DMV for 5 hours to get my M endorsement. I waited 3 hours to pay, then another 2 for the test to be available.

lmao. Me too. I hated the ordeal I had to go through. I don't know how it's done elsewhere, but in Bryan/College Station, you actually had to have someone in a car come with you. That way, they can tag along with the person you bring with you in the car and follow you around.

I didn't know that. I show up, get turned away since I don't have someone with me.

I show up the next day with a ride lined up. (you show up, register for a spot, then come back later that day). Well, I'm there super early so I can get a spot. 1.5 hours before they even open, and there's still 3-4 people in front of me.

Well, that day, there was a funeral for someone that had worked at the DMV, so there were no driving tests that day. Didn't bother to put a sign up. Oh, yeah...I had also called the day before asking about it and they didn't deem it necessary to let me know then either.

So I come the next day, get a spot. Fail. They said I ran a red light when I didn't...it was yellow. I'm being 500% more cautious than I usually am because I'm being followed trying to get my license. There's no way in I ran a red light.

Finally got my license the next time I came...after 4 trips to the DMV. I wanted to kill someone.

My ID Just came in the mail yesterday. The only documents that were needed when I went, was the Proof of MSF Completion, and also my Original Drivers License.

Took the test, paid my dues, and I was a happy camper on my way. Oh and also I went to the DPS office on west airport @ Gessner.


Good luck

That's the office I always go to... it' or miss.

When I went there I showed up and hour before they opened and there was a line all the way back around the front of the building and then onto the side road. It was crazy... took like 4 hours to get it all done and I barely passed with their dumb questions.

Something along the lines of when you are transporting things with your bike where do you attach them:

1- as close to the subframe of the bike as possible
2- as close to the front of the bike as possible
3- as close to the ground as possible
4- something else stupid that I don't remember

I picked subframe because it seemed to make the most sense, but the correct answer was as close to the front of the bike as possible... to this day I have no clue why. lol
