I would see if your state has a waiver if you take the basic MSF course. Then you do not need to take the state test once you complete the MSF course you'll receive a letter that you can take to your DMV and they'll give you the license. Not sure if that's avail. in CT. But in NY we can skip the DMV test if we complete the MSF course. PLus i recommed taking the course anyway to anyone.

+1 I def agree The MSF course is a must for a serious rider. The only thing was the box!!!! I think that's probably the part that most people hat the most.

Ok thanks, yeah if you take the MSF course then you just basically do the test there, they sign a paper, bring it to the DMV and you get your license. I was thinking about taking it but i'm broke right now so was leaning more towards just going to the dmv.

when you do a figure 8 dont go too slow or u will drop. try to rent a vespa or sumthing, it makes the test a whole lot easier. i personally did my test with my very first bike-gsxr 1000 and passed with flying colors. good luck. and remember if you fail try and try again. its more than worth it.

I don't know about your State specifically, but the standard box is a 20 foot square, enter left corner, figure 8, exit right corner.
it was opposite 0n my test

but then again, i live in MA and everything is backwards :shifty

and by 20 foot square you mean 20 feet each side? cuz i just chauked one out and i couldnt do it lol. Seems way too small.
Yeah! most people can't on the first try. Once you master the clutch/throttle control, You should be able to knock it out. On my little 500 i could handle it with some space in there.

i could not pass the IL state riding test on my 600 it was impossible i had to take a msf course and pass it with a Honda rebel.
i took the M test at the bridgview dmv with my 600 after riding for only 6 months, passed it on the second try. plus the dmv in bridgeview sucks because the road test is in between the building and a fence.

I just went to DMV after it was closed, the course and figure 8 are painted in the parking lot. I did the course like 30 times and had no problems on the test. I'm in CA, and the test was pretty tough on a 600.

Yeah good call I'll probly go down to the school where the classes are taken, im sure they got the box marked out there, and practice on that. How long you gotta wait to retake if you fail?
