if your looking for the ERC (experienced) you'll need to call around, cuz most schools only offer it 1x a month.

I called the Houston Court.
They said since my speeding ticket was on a motorcycle, i have to take a Motorcycle Operators Training Course (MOTC) to help dismiss my ticket. I cannot take a normal Defensive Driving like for cagers.

If anyone knows a good online or place in Houston. Let me know. I'm furstrated searching online. I find all Defensive Driving for CAGERS!!

That would be because Defensive Driving is strictly for cars, not motorcycles.

As the Court told you, you'll need to take a Motorcycle Training Course. These are not available as an online course.

You can find a complete list for Houston Schools here.

What if you already have BRC from Awesome Cycles, but you received a ticket (59 in a 45) after you took the course.

Will I need to take the ERC to dismiss the ticket?

Is there an online course?

I have tried to get a few tickets taken care of and every place says "Oh you need to take MOTORCYCLE defensive driving". Well there is no such thing as "Motorcycle Defensive Driving" There is Basic Riders Course and Experience Riders Course. But thats it, and no one at the courts can tell you what you need to take, not the clerk, not the judge, the DA, no one. Everytime I have dealt with it I ended up having to call DPS and everytime DPS says defensive driving is defensive driving, I let the courts know and they let me take regular defensive driving online.
