Never taken the DMV course. I've always taken the MSF course in every state I've moved too.

Many DMVs provide a book that includes a diagram of the course so that riders can practice ahead of time.

Why wouldn't you take the Motorcycle Safety Foundation (MSF) rider's course? In many states, you automatically get a full endorsement when you pass. It's like being given the test to practice all day long before taking the actual test. That leads to a high level of success (pass rate).

As an aside, I have a co-worker that bought a scooter and was too impatient to wait for an available MSF class. He went to the DMV and passed. It can be done, but why would you want to?

Listen to Dr. Pulley. Take the MSF and at least get the minimum skills to survive on the street.
