Study advice

Study advice: All right first off I am a noob at bikes. I have been on my wifeís 50 and a Yamaha 125 dual sport, which I believe was slower and had crappier brakes than the 50. So I can operate a bike and have basic concept of things . I want to take an MSF class soon. Not sure which one yet though. QUESTION: What is the best way to study for the DMV test. I donít want to half it and fail just because I only read the TDPS motorcycle operators manual. Are there test guides or what not available or does the class give enough info to make the test easy?

the questions asked in the written portion of the MSF class are similar/identical to those on the DPS test. Pass your MSF, and you should be ok to pass your license.

license question

It's always a good idea to read thru the state Motorcycle Operator Manual before taking the test, even after completing the MSF course. It's a national curriculum and the DPS test is a state test. Wording is a little different for some things, and it's best to be familiar with how TX says things. We supply all graduates with a copy of the MOM.
We have a class in LaMarque that meets weekends and Mon-Tues. If we can be of help, let us know.

This. There is a book that will supply all the answers. READ it. I did, and I found the test to be extremely simple. I didn't miss any questions on the computer part.

You'll be fine, study signs...I think that one caught me since I thought that I knew all of them.
