motorcycle license

Trying to get some info on attaining the class M license. Can i do this in one day? does it have to be scheduled? i would like to take a day off work and be able to get it all done, the written and road test. but i am hearing that now you have to take an approved safety course (around $200) that is a 2 or 3 day event before you can take the written test. having trouble getting the info i need online. any factual knowledge on this? i already know how to ride i'd rather not spend 200 bucks on a safety class.

Contact these folks...

They should be able to answer most of your questions and they are site sponsors. If you want more info, go to their website or check out their subforum in the sponsor section.

You have no choice but to take a Basic RiderCourse (BRC). It is required to get a license. It's a 15 hour class usually done over 2 days.

You can visit us at www.awesomecycles.com to schedule one or get more information.

No, state changed the rules earlier this year. Your certificate is now valid up to 2 years from date of issuance.

Unfortunately you have no choice-you have to take the safety course. The link for Ridesmart will not be able to help you. There will be a new 1 day course coming out in the next couple of weeks for experienced riders only to acquire the M endorsement. Check out MRH rider training for details=they are a sponsor on this forum.
