Hello all, I hope to take my MSF course sometime this coming summer (June/July), and have heard that the wait list is a bit long. So, when should I register at the latest? I am waiting for my friend to return from school sometime in May and am wondering if it would be too late to register then. Thank you.

About 4 years ago, I signed up in late November and got in to one of the very first classes in March of the following year. I would say don't wait until February if you can get signed up earlier.

The folks at the NOVA MSF are pretty cool and the instruction is well worth it, even if you've been riding for a while.

Sign up for the class ASAP. However, even though they say that you can not walk in & pay @ the time of class, you indeed can. There were three people in my class last year that did it. i was told that they would not let anyone do that. I was on the list for a cancelation spot & I got in that way earlier than I was signed up for. I'd say definatley do that as well.
The class is great!
Good luck & enjoy!

Yes get in on the sign up sheet as early as possible. If you wait until next may you are liable to not get a spot in a class until the following season.

MSF Basic Rider Course registration varies from state to state. Contact your own state's Motor Vehicle Administration for details.

I'm an ex-MSF Rider Coach in MD. MD is getting away from centralized registration and has contracted with several Community Colleges to process registration and provide a site for training. Some registration is still done at the MVA Headquarter's in Glen Burnie.

In MD, registration for CY2004 starts in January by calling the MVA or by registering with a local community college. It is not possible to pre-register now for a class in 2004.

One option, if you find yourself with a bike and without a course registration date, is to show up on the first day of a scheduled class. Generally, there are vacancies - i.e., people who don't show. In MD, the class is filled by lottery (pick a number out of a hat) from the people who show up as a stand-by.

Hey guys I am new to the site, i am also the sales manager at Coleman Powersports. Which from what I have experienced is open to mixed reviews. However I DO love Ducati's a lot, that is why the falls church location (the one i manage) just got the franshise. Anyway to get to the point, we put on a new rider seminar every month in season. The significance of this seminar is that by attending you get priority seating in the MSF class along with a coupon for some really good savings at our store. I believe I scheduled the first one in February. So if you are interested drop me a line. From my experience it is the fastest and easiest way to get into the class.
