What do you mean? Are you asking if the school would be considered for a ticket deferral?

Per DPS - Motorcycle Safety Unit:

According to Texas statues it only has to be a Department-approved course so the judge has to decide whether or not it will be accepted. Typically, they only accept the Basic and Advanced MSF courses because that’s all they know. Since we can only “regulate” the actual training and not what it is used for (licensing, ticket dismissal, etc), the fact that the Criminal Code uses our curriculum/standards for ticket dismissal would require the criminal justice system to make additional determinations of which approved courses they would accept.

Texas Transportation Code
Select "Texas Statues" then "Code of Criminal Procedure"
§45.0511 (Chapter 45 Justice and Municipal Courts, Article 45.0511 Driving Safety or Motorcycle Operator Course Dismissal Procedures)

I think any judge can allow you to do whatever he/she wants to dismiss a ticket. We had one at Ridesmart, last year, at TWS (Texas World Speedway). You just have to ask.

I was only wondering because I was reading a GIECO policy that states, " Unless the track org meets MSF standards, your bike would not be covered in the event of a crash". Personally I know the organiztions more than likely exceed the standards, I was just trying to protect my property to the full value, and explain to others the rules of coverage. Thanks Tim

I'm really interested in what you have to say... I am also with Geico. I have bumped coverage to exceed the minimum required. I spoke with my insurance agent and I was told that I'd be covered in novice but on my own in intermediate and advanced.

On that note, LSTD is the only "officially certified" organization in the State of Texas that can provide a DPS form 8100 that is required by the State for tickets. More information will be forthcoming on this via our website and Facebook page.

I went down at MSRH in Dec 2010. I have State Farm and they fully covered my bike.

Very important: I was at a motorcycle school on a closed and controlled course receiving personal coaching by a school instructor.
