As far as I know, we're the only school that has scooters for the students to take the BRC on.

Don't risk getting caught on the street without a license. It could cost you far more than the price of any class.

To be honest. It's WELL worth the drive to Awesome cycles. I drove from pasadena for their class. You won't find a cheaper one, they offer a MH discount. Not to mention they're badass instructors. Just do it, you'll be glad you did.

there are classes at houston comm college at the east campus, where they have truck driving school

they don't have scooters, so you'll have to learn on a reg. motorcycle.

This one might be the closest to you? Where I took the riding part of the class was really close to pasadena.
Has been years since then so you might want to call and check.

Id find a ride and take it at AWESOME CYCLES IMO.... I drove an hour just to take that class. They're highly recomended and have people come from out of town and out of state. They're a bunch of great people and will answer ANY questions you have. Like others have said, it's not worth getting caught not having your license

You're getting your schools mixed up. Nobody named Rebecca and nothing by Almeda Mall from us. And yes, we're open Monday.
