Yes, effective September 1, 2009, a Texas law passed that required successful completion of an MSF Basic RiderCourse*. This applies to all riders 18 years of age and older or if you held a motorcycle license which has since lapsed.
If you are under 18 years of age: as a minor, you must have a valid learner’s permit or driver’s license to take our courses. In addition, participants under 18 years of age must have medical consent and course waiver forms signed by a parent or guardian in person at the training location in front of the coach or the forms must be notarized.

If you have a motorcycle with a “J” or “K” restriction you may take the motorcycle on-cycle skill test at your local Driver License office instead of taking the Course.
For exact verbiage of the statute, read Texas Transportation Code §521.148
