Can I transfer my GA moto endorsement to TX?

Hoping someone has experience. Have just moved to TX from GA. Had to take the MSF in GA to get the motorcycle endorsement. Now need to get a TX drivers license (for car and bike). Per the DPS website it says I need to present a copy of my MSF test results (which I've long since thrown away - didn't think I'd need them, as a pass was required to get the motorcycle endorsement in GA in the first place).

So, question is: can't I simply retain the motorcycle endorsement when I surrender my GA license? Do I really need to try to dig up a copy of the test results (if MSF still has a copy), or worse still, take the blasted course/test again?!

OK, I may actually have answered my own question. Found the following Q&A on a motorcycle training website from TX - not sure it's accurate, but will take the chance:

Q. What if I am an out-of-state licensed driver who has moved to Texas and I already have a Class M and would like to obtain a Texas driver license with a Class M. Do I need to present evidence of completion of a Motorcycle Safety Course?





A. Applicants age 18 and above with a valid out-of-state driver license with motorcycle classification will be waived of the requirement to present evidence of completion of a Motorcycle Safety Course. Applicants 15-17 years of age will be required to present proof of completion of an MSF course and take the motorcycle driving skills test.

Welcome. We moved here from Atlanta three years ago. The wife and I had no problem retaining our M endorsements. If your GA license had it, your TX should too. However... CHECK their work and make sure the get your info right. They screwed my address and organ donor status up on mine. Not all of the folks working there are exactly rocket surgeons.

Thanks. Got it done today - transferred to my new TX license with no issues.
