    License test


    I called the place running the class last week and they said I do not need a permit to take the class or get my license.

    Must be different in CT. In MA you can take the class with no permit as long as you have a valid drivers liscense. Afterall they do want your 275 dollars but they wont give you the certificate saying you passed so you can skip your road test at the registry.

    I tend to agree with the others. It sure sounds like you're going down a road that will mean passing the MSF test then having to retest for an endorsement. Why take the test twice and why risk dropping your new bike during a 2nd test when you could pass it the 1st time on a trainer?

    From what I was told I do the test at the end of the class on Sunday and then if I pass I get my license, just have to go to the DMV to get it, no test. Plus I use the bikes at the class/testing site. Am I being fed wrong information. I am not getting a MA license or taking the class in MA. I had to switch my class because of the situation which also got me in to the class sooner.

    A quick run down: taking the MSF class in CT to get a CT LICENSE. The trainer at the class said I do not need a permit for the class.

    I'm not from CT so I don't know. If you've been told you can get the certificate thingy to get your license without a permit then I guess you're good to go.

    License test

    This is what their website says:
    "This is for people with little or no experience riding motorcycles, who want to learn. Students must possess a VALID DRIVER’S LICENSE. Training motorcycles are provided. Successful completion of this course fulfills the requirements of the State approved novice rider course for licensing, leaving only the “written” test to be taken with the DMV to obtain endorsement."

    Ya they are a bit vague. If I were you I would call the DMV tomorrow and make sure.

    License test

    To clarify for everyone:

    If you have a CT license and you take the MSF class, then you get a certificate that you bring to the DMV to get the M endorsement on your license. You do NOT need to retest at the DMV. How do I know?? This is how I got my license, that's how!

    Once you have your endorsement you can take the MSF Experienced Rider Course (ERC). It's much shorter since you don't have to re-learn all the parts of a bike. The ERC course strengthens your skills but on your own bike. It still only leaves you qualified to safely operate your motorcycle in a parking lot when completed but every learning chance you get will increase your likelyhood of living through anything thrown at you on the street.

    Good luck!
    I rode for my first year on permit(s). Half way through my second season, took the MSF course. MAJOR difference right away in my own abilities. Example: Was nervous making a u-turn on a regular road before the class. After, was able to do it in one lane. MSF course is definately a must-do for beginners and experienced alike.

    I gotta go take the ERC next chance I get.

    Bang!! done!

    It scared me how easy it was.

    I got my license after 2 weeks of learning on an EX500 back in 1992(Practiced for hours every day). A couple months later, I took the MSF BRC only in its 2nd or third year of its existence. One instructor crashed in front of the class showing off scraping his pegs.

    And look at you now. Cold tires coming out of the mall of NH dragging knees.

    You have come a long way danielson!

    Thank you Sir!

    Yes cold tires. I practice on cold tires in parking lots quite often actually. About 18mph is a sweet speed to practice at.

    Once the Pilot Powers get warmed up, I feel like I'm getting away with bloody murder with the throttle at NHIS. The Michelin Man really got those tires right!
