driver license

after taking awesome cycles riders course, you get the certificate that passes you for the driving portion of the DPS test. Anyone know how long it is valid for?

I don't think it expires. If it does it should be good for a year at least I'd think. All that shows it that you took and passed the BRC. That shouldn't have an expiration on it.

You just need to go take the written test at DPS and show them your certificate and pay the $15.

For DPS purposes, there is no expiration date. HOWEVER, if you wait too long, you may get a DPS clerk that doesn't know that.

Then you have to convince them to call the DPS Motorcycle Safety Unit in Austin to get the correct information and accept the certificate.

Easiest thing to do is just go down and get your M endorsement relatively quickly after completing your course. Saves all the hassle and drama.

You just have to show up with your license and your card from the MSF course. You fill out some paperwork and take a computer and eye test, and you're done.

After going to a couple of places and calling around during lunch at several other places, I think the best DPS office to go to is the one on Beltway 8 by IAH. I don't recall the street it's on, but there's a page that lists the offices and has a link to a map for each one. Every other place was busy all the time. I went to this one an hour before they close on Friday and got in and out with no problem.

I think RacerX said they're discounting right now. Regularly $180-190, but $150 for now.

In Texas, you can get your M endorsement at 15, but you are limited to 250cc or less.

When you turn 16, there are no limitations.
