I took this, but in my state (PA) it's called MSC (Motorcycle Safty Course)....First, I went for my license test with my own, first bike ('09 KLX250s) with only a few months of experience and not to mention being only 18 and few months old. I remember the instructor giving me three tries to do a Figure Eight on the test and I couldn't for the life of me figure out how anyone could do it and keep their balance and the bike upright, let alone keep their feet off the ground while doing it... Of course, I failed my exam and enrolled in the MSC and upon completion I was a much more skilled and careful rider, plus I earned my Class M License. Three Years later and I am still thankful for the skills I learned in the course which I will use every ride. But don't make the mistake into thinking this is just an "easy way" to get your License if you can't pass the normal exam. Out of the 21 People in my class, Believe it or not, though 18 passed the written exam, only 6 (including me) passed the skills (riding) test and got their license. The rest didn't pass and had to start again from the beginning. But if you apply yourself and really want it, it's totally doable for anyone, you just have to realize it's not some BS walk in the park, it's just like anything else, you need to practice and really want it to succeed. Overall I rate it a 9/10 for the instructors and materials, skills, etc. It was a great tool for which I'm thankful for plus it was FREE and I got a cool sticker at the end lol. i can proudly say today that I have not been in a single Motorcycle accident that was my fault since I started riding ( I was rear-ended by a d.u.i. driver but luckily was alright thanks to my helmet and gear p.s. after i saw the gash in my helmet i never had any doubts about wearing it every single ride no exceptions!), and I attribute this to the skills I learned in the MSC. It truly was an invaluble tool for me... This was PA by the way. If anyone would like more info feel free to PM me.
