Motorcycle Safety

The Texas Motorcycle Law requires the completion of a Basic Motorcycle Course to receive a new motorcycle license (M endorsement).

The Motorcycle Basic RiderCourse is designed with the beginner in mind, but experienced riders can also benefit from this course. You will learn how to operate a motorcycle, the best protective clothing to wear, how to avoid dangerous situations and what’s most important - how to get out of those dangerous situations you can’t avoid. By the end of the course, we’ll be challenging your skills at the two-year rider level. The best part is you don’t even need a helmet or a motorcycle - we provide them for you.   

Upon successful completion of the course, students are issued a MSB-8 certificate which satisfies the Texas Department of Public Safety riding exam.
