Go to the classes anyway, they allow walkins to make up for those who are no showes. That is how i did my classes.

Go to the Aurora DMV on a saturday morning and take the test. It only took me a year to figure that out. I had my M license in about 20 minutes from the time I walked in the door.

M, for 16 years.

Just a thought for those of you who are riding without the proper endorsement on your license: If you are on your bike and involved in an accident, don't count on your insurance to pay up a dime - or continue providing your coverage, either.

class M for 19 years, before that I had an L. Do they still have an under 150cc license? That's all you could get if you were under 18 when I was a wee lad.

You don't need to take a class to get a M license. Just go to the DMV, it is easy. All it takes is about 10 minutes of weaving in and out of the cone markers until you've got it down.



I dropped my bike the first time That is a tricky test. After embarassing the hell out of myself, I went over and practiced afterhours on the course in Naperville. It took me 30 minutes before I was able to consistently weave on the outside of the cones without putting my foot down. Went back the next morning and passed (10 points deducted). The test consists of 6 maneuvers on the DMV course with an attendant keeping score and a written exam. There is a pamphet at the DMV that describes the maneuvers.

If you get caught riding without a M license and convicted, it is an automatic two month license suspension plus fines. The suspension is not negotiable, the fine is. Also, if you are in an accident without having a M license, insurance will not cover the damage.

If you have a permit you should be with someone who has a "M" for over a year and during daylight hours.

Just go to the Elgin DMV or where ever and practice on the course for 30-45 minutes before they open. Then be first in line, take the test, and be out with a "M"! It's no big deal.....

Good luck and hope to see you soon.............
