Total Rider offers NO REFUNDS once class has started. It’s kinda like missing the bus —we go without you— and you’ll forfeit your entire course fee if you:
- arrive late for any class (sorry, no exceptions!)
- fail to attend scheduled riding days consecutively (BRC)
- selected the wrong course for your skill level (click here for course info)
- are dismissed / counseled-out by the instructor for any reason
leave class for any reason once you begin training on motorcycles
fail to wear required gear/apparel for riding days
decide to quit (we won’t hold it against you, but sorry… no refunds) 😥
✍ Knowledge Test:
- The knowledge test is based solely on the MSF eCourse you completed online, and is not reviewed in the classroom… so really pay attention to what you’ve learned, because…
- You are required to score at least 80% correct in order to continue the course. Failing the knowledge test will result in automatic dismissal and you’ll be required to pay $75 for rescheduling and test retake.
🏍 Motorcycle Skills Training and Testing:
- Students are required to pass all riding exercises and skills evaluation in order to receive a completion certificate.
- A failure of any part of skills training is a failure of the entire course and must be repeated from the beginning, including classroom, at full class price.
Additional Fees (Rescheduling* or Retesting)
- Rescheduling fee if Total Rider is notified at least 3 days prior to scheduled class.
- Failed Knowledge Test fee: One-time retake (additional attempts to pass knowledge test require full class price).
- Rescheduling fee if Total Rider is notified less than 3 days prior to scheduled class.
* Reschedules will only be discussed with the enrolled student unless student is a minor (15-17 years of age).
❗ Risky Riding. Any student whose riding performance creates an unmanageable danger during training will be removed from the course and will not be entitled to additional classes with Total Rider.
🌧 Weather. Classes go on rain or shine, hot or cold, unless Total Rider deems otherwise. If in doubt, call or text our office (512-522-5844) to determine if a class has been canceled. See our Weather FAQ.
