Motorcycle Safety

The Texas Motorcycle Law requires the completion of a Basic Motorcycle Course to receive a new motorcycle license (M endorsement).  More information on the law is available at http://www.txdps.state.tx.us/DriverLicense/motorcyclelicense.htm

Sign up for the basic course if you haven't had much riding experience or if you've never ridden at all.  In the basic course, we teach you 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.  Upon successful completion of the course, students are issued a MSB-8 certificate which should satisfy the Texas Department of Public Safety motorcycle riding test.

  

Student Requirements

Students must be able to ride and balance a bicycle.  Student must provide and wear the following required safety gear:  D.O.T. approved helmet (loaners available); eye protection (glasses or face shield); full-fingered gloves; long-sleeve shirt or jacket; over-the-ankle boots (with low heels); long pants (jeans or sturdy material with no holes or tears).

Students are encouraged to review and familiarize themselves with the Motorcycle Safety Foundation (MSF) Basic RiderCourse Handbook prior to class, which they will receive at the time of registration.
