Taking the course after the fact may not get you out of a ticket, but it might help out in the long run. At least you won't get a ticket for "that" again... Who knows, If you present your course completion certificate and current driver license with a brand new "M" on it to the court, the judge might take that into consideration.
We formally updated to the BRCu in May of 2017. Our location was selected to train and certify RiderCoaches from across Texas to the new curriculum.
We provide theTexas motorcycle driver written test and riding test! No additional testing at the Driver License Office - unless you are under 18. For more information regarding youth driving motorcycles - see the link on our Resources and References page.
The MSF Basic RiderCourse is designed for beginning riders of all ages. Five hours are spent online taking the eCourse. This must be completed before attending your first formal riding session. Completing the online course satisfies the Texas written driver exam for the Basic Rider Course, and prepares you for ten hours of hands-on riding. The riding exercises are conducted in a controlled, off-street environment – located at Whataburger Field parking lot. Motorcycles and helmets are provided free of charge for your use during the course. On the riding range, your MSF-certified RiderCoach will guide you through the basic skills of straight-line riding, stopping, shifting, and turning, gradually progressing to swerving and emergency braking.
We ride Rain or Shine! Watch the weather forecast and dress appropriately. Motorcycle-specific rain gear is highly recommended if the weatherman predicts rain.
The course concludes with a riding skill evaluation. Once your RiderCoach hands you the course completion card, you'll be happy knowing that you’ve gone the extra mile to develop your own safe riding techniques. There are benefits to taking a RiderCourse besides learning important skills and strategies: Texas waives the riding portion of your motorcycle endorsement test if you’ve successfully completed the Basic RiderCourse (if 18 or older), and your insurance company might provide a discount too.
