MSF Basic Rider Course Student Information

Course Cost: $275.00 Payable to STHD via cash / check / credit card payable upon registration (receiving a class date). You will be refunded, and you may re-schedule a class providing that you give STHD a seven (7) day cancellation notification prior to the scheduled class start date and a fill-in applicant, paid in full, can be located. Non-refundable otherwise or after class start date. To re-schedule a class without the seven (7) day cancellation notification the full $275.00 must be re-paid. In any case, full payment is required prior to confirming your class date.

You will not have to take another road test through DMV. You must bring both a valid New York State  Drivers license and a valid New York State Motorcycle learner's permit to the first day of class if you are a New York resident. If you are not a New York resident you must have a valid out of state license.
