Beware if you're a beginner or inexperienced on motorcycles. If you can't keep up with the "objectives of the class", in the timed exercises you will be told you cannot continue. No second chances, money gone. There is no offer to come back and redo anything or discounts on a future class. It happened to me. It was my first time on a motorcycle. Did the best I could, and was starting to get the hang of it, but wasn't good enough once the time for the exercise elapsed. I was told there are too many students in class and not enough time to continue giving me individual assistance. As a novice I was asked to leave after about 2 hours of training. If that.
I m now going to go to another school, which is only $150 and if you fail, they allow you to come back to future classes if there is space. Very fair and reasonable deal. No pressure that you are going to be robbed if as a beginner you don't master the exercises in 10 minutes. This review is not about the instructors, who did a good job during class, but of the school's policy. Just be aware of the risk before you put $200+ down for a class supposedly meant for beginners. This company talks about not allowing anyone to pass who hasn t mastered the skills necessary to survive on the street and meet MSF guidelines, which is appropriate, but that dosn t mean that they can t offer more support to get a beginner who signs up for the beginners class by allowing them to come back and retake a class at a later date like some other schools.
After writing this review on another site, the vice president of the school wrote my personal e mail accusing me of wanting to graduate without passing the exercise. She apparently didn't read the review to gain constructive feedback from what I wrote, and see that my complaint was about lack of follow up support to someone who put their trust in her school for their motorcycle training. This isn't about some flimsy power point generated certificate, or endorsement which is hardly necessary to take to the streets. Anyone can easily take the written test to get a learners permit, which I did. Still not driving until I take another class because I am concerned about safety. Like I said, just be aware of where you put your money. Most people probably like the course. Those who are new to motorcycles, just need to be wary with the schools sink or swim mentality.
