We charge $190 at Jacksonville Motorcycle Safety Training here in Jax FL, with discounts for military, police, FD, etc. Sorry in advance for the spam. Feel free to delete if necessary.

I have taken two MSF courses. One in California and one in North Carolina. Both were paid for and conducted on military bases.

I also was sent to the Keith Code Superbike school on the military's dime last year!

I took mine in July '06 at St. Louis Community College, $175. Classes fill up fast - find out when registration opens for the semester and sign up the very first day.

For anyone is South Western Ontario:

OMSA (Ontario Motorcycle Safety Association) based in Kitchener

www.rideomsa.com

Very informative, I learned a great deal from it. They use XR200's and TTR225's which are fun. It's 349.99 for M1 and 249.99 for M2 exit. Only crap part is they make you ride 2 up on the dirtbikes... not cool

Indiana is $50 for ABATE members, $75 for non-members which includes the $25 membership fee for 1 year. You can have the $25 refunded within 2 weeks of graduating if you do not wish to be a member. I have not taken the course yet, but I will be signing up for one with a couple friends very soon. Classes don't start until the end of April anyway, we can hardly wait!

Basic info:

Laugermans H-D, York, PA --> Free

Sorry for the slight threadjack, but:

im not trying to rub it in, i just dont understand why this isn't done elsewhere.
I think I'm having deja vu on this topic. No money is taken from registration fees.

Direct from the PA MSF website:

The Basic RiderCourse is FREE for Pennsylvania Residents.

The Pennsylvania Motorcycle Safety Program is funded through an additional fee that you pay when you obtain, renew or replace a motorcycle permit or license.

It is also explained here, again direct from the website:

THE MOTORCYCLE SAFETY COURSE IS FUNDED BY THE FOLLOWING:

7904. Fees -
Fees relating to motorcycle licenses for motorcycle operators to be collected by the department under this chapter shall be in addition to any other fees imposed under the provisions of this title and are as follows:
(1) An additional fee of $5.00 shall be assessed and collected for each original motorcycle operator's license.

(2) An additional fee of $5.00 shall be assessed and collected for each annual renewal of a motorcycle operator's license.

(3) An additional fee of $5.00 shall be assessed and collected for each motorcycle learner's permit.

(4) An additional fee of $5.00 shall be assessed and collected for each replacement motorcycle operator's license.
