SourPus

Being a former MSF instructor myself I have a hard time swallowing I have to pay $250 bucks just to have my "M" put Back on my License! There has to be another way.

It's been mandatory in Texas since 2009.
Take either the BRC (2-3 day) or the IRC (1 day).

DPS is going to have the BRC2 as a licensing option starting probably late 2018 or early 2019.

If it's the 1 day IRC, yes it is a state mandated minimum of $250.

The BRC is a max of $235 from a private sponsor. Harley Riding Academy are licensed and can charge whatever they want.

why you have to take a class

Just curious: what happened to your M? As a former MSF instructor, did you stop riding? Or are you riding without a license now?
Since 2009 the only way to get your endorsement back is to do either a basic ridercourse or a Total Control Intermediate Riding Clinic. That was due to a push by the motorcycle rights organizations to "educate not legislate" to stave off a mandatory helmet law, and also to try to do something to bring down this state's miserable fatality and injury rate for motorcyclists. (Did you know that in this state the MAJORITY of motorcycle fatalities are as a result of single-vehicle crashes? And that the three most cited reasons are alcohol, improper cornering and excessive speed? In other words, we motorcyclists brought this upon ourselves.)
It's often cheaper to take a class during the week. Have you checked that option?
