Once you are gone...They dont care.
After moving due to the military, I lost my MSF card. I called my instructor who has since moved and they contacted the owner. Appearently the computer that had all the data crashed. So there is no way to get the information the easy way.
The office manager offered to let me get up in the crawl space to find my card, but every time I call they are unwilling to assist me. I know its a business, but per the Texas DOT Motorcycle Safety Unit, they must maintain the card for three years. I'm guessing that they dont even have that.
I my instructors were still there, I would recommed this to everyone, but now......Find another place.
I Highly Recommend The Motorcycle School in San Antonio.
I just completed my class and I found the owner and instructors of top quality and highly supportive of their students. I had the opportunity to view some instruction at a MSF site near their headquarters in Southern California and the instruction here was as close as it comes to what occurs near their headquarters. I made a few mistakes and one "big" mistake during my training, but the coach I had was positive and helpful and it made all the difference.
I'm not sure why someone would make a review that they did not train their students and that it was a "scam." From what I observed, nothing could be further from the truth and they DO NOT pass you if you can't exhibit passing skills. In fact, if you are not progressing and you exhibit habits that are a danger to yourself or others you will be cut from the program. Your safety, the safety of others and of the general public once you are licensed is their primary concern (I don't think anyone could argue with that policy). I feel the other positive reviews are more reflective of the quality of this school
Although no student in my group raised their hand when the instructor asked if we had prior experience on a motorcycle, five of the eight in our group (I would later learn during breaks) had experience, and of those, five had extensive experience on motorcycles (a woman in our group rode a motorcycle "all the time" on her ranch). It distorts the perceptions an instructor has of the progress of individuals in the group, since he assumes everyone is starting at the same zero base. This is not the school's fault and I don't know how you can stop that type of behavior.
Good instructors, and thorough. I would recommend this course to anyone that has a motorcycle that hasn't been. There is always something to take away. This establishment had great instructors, and a fast paced curriculum. The instructors were knowledgable, helpful, and patient. The facility itself, while dated in design, where adequate to accomplish the task.
The only downside I had was they did not have more than one type/style bike to choose from, and the ones provided I didn't care for....but that is business, the nod goes to the lowest bidder.
con artists. what a scam! They just wanted our money, they rushed through everything and didn't give us enough time to practice. We got our license, though, because they lady didn't make us test.
Very thorough instructors.. In the amount of time you have to learn to ride a bike the instructors are very helpful. The information you take away with you is useful. Don't go out before taking this class you will be out in the heat.
