It works the same way...1 day classroom, 1 day riding portion. They test you there and then give you a slip that says you've passed the riding portion and are now eligible for a M class on your license. I didn't need it though...I took my riding test at the DMV the day I turned 18. Nonetheless, it was $20 to reserve your spot and then if you really wanted it back you could send in a form and they would refund your money. Crazy that prices have gone so high in recent years.
Each state sets it's own price. Illinois is still a "$20 donation" whereas other states are over $200.

Texas was lower a few years ago (the state subsidized some of the cost), however, their budget was revamped and they are no longer able to do that.

Technically, the price is now $190 in Texas (became effective Sept. 1), but none of the schools have raised prices yet.
