In all likelihood, the available MSF courses are full. They tend to do that as the weather warms around here.

My, wasn't it a beautiful weekend?

The dmv will have a course at the back of the building where they will test you. If you want to practice, just go there after hours or on the weekend at the time they're not open, and practice.

FWIW, I am from VA, but have never taken a test here. I got my license on an 1974 MT250 dual sport. Borrow a dual sport for the test. Problem solved.

Bite your tongue! I worked all weekend. By the time I got home, it was dark and cold.

I think he works with Jack Meoff. Anyway, I took the DMV riders test on my old KZ750 in 2004 (after they found my MC endorsement from 1973 had expired) and I asked the tester if I could do it standing up. Worked a lot better. Real tight test, lots of cones and red borders and stuff.

I took the original test in 1973 on a Cushman Eagle. When the guy asked me to point out the clutch and gear shifter, he almost shat he did. Suicide shift.
