As mentioned try them all and write a review of the strengths and weakness of each program.

What?! You get to ride for free? !!

I've been paying this whole time! I am definitely going to have a serious discussion with Meril about this issue!

I am really not very happy right now!

You are just playing, right Brandt? Please say you're just playing...

Uh Nope! Contrary to what many think instructing is HARD WORK! You earn very lap you get to "play" buy working with the students. If you truly do not love teaching then all the "free" track time is not worth anything.

To be perfectly honest, that is how I look at it (at my current skill level)
But, for a noob, I can't really say who I'd recommend without it being biased (started as a noob and progressed through a certain org.) After not needing much more instruction, I'll ride with whatever org fits my schedule. Some operate better than others IMO, but they are all good really. . .

Umm, I went to Code's school first. lol

Truly just pick a trackday that suits your schedule. Each provider has strengths and weaknesses.
Overall they are all good, with plenty of instruction and lots of tracktime.

Just leave your ego at home, ask lots of questions and drink plenty of water (seriously).
